Blissful Bedrooms is a NY-based nonprofit that makes over the bedrooms of wheelchair bound and economically disadvantaged young people. Using a website, Facebook and Craigslist, organizers solicit money, materials and volunteers for projects.
The brainchild of a yoga teacher who works with disabled students in the South Bronx, Blissful Bedrooms seeks to create a sanctuary for teens and young adults who face profound economic and social challenges. Think "Extreme Home Makeover" with no cameras, production crew or budget. Check out the Blissful Bedrooms website and a great NPR piece about the organization.
