After having built their first small stool, this team decided to step it up a notch!

Raffle for Hand-Crafted Chairs Raises Big Money for Teens

We had an opportunity to partner with teen girls at the New Outlook Teen Center in Exeter, N.H. Fifteen girls built 15 wonderful chairs in two days; the chairs were then painted by local artists and raffled off to raise money for the teen center. The team raised $4,500!!

A huge thank you to Karen Prior for pulling this together and to Marianne Jones of The New Hampshire Women’s Fund for taking the time to observe the magic that happens when girls learn how to build! Not only did these girls discover some hidden talent, but Karen and Marianne also partnered up to build an awesome chair!
