We were happy to provide a smile to a six year old girl named Maddie. Maddie is from Durham, NC who battles a rare neurological disorder called Alternating Hemiplegia. When asked what she would like, she told us – a bedroom makeover with a Frozen Theme!
We had Maddie’s bedroom completely re-painted in a blue Frozen color. From there, it was tons of accessories including graphics of the Frozen characters, Frozen theme storage trunk, rugs, new bedding, lamps and LED wall art. Maddie’s smile tells us – mission accomplished!
Special thank you to Lopez Painting for helping us with Maddie’s Smile and also to you for helping us to bring smiles to awesome kids like Maddie!
