We recently enjoyed a whirlwind visit from our friend Ana Smith. Ana is co-founder of Humble Design, a Detroit-based nonprofit that furnishes homes for formerly homeless women, single mothers who are in the process of leaving shelters or escaping domestic abuse. You can read all about Humble by clicking here and in this New York Times article that ran earlier this year.

As Ana made holiday cookies with us in Isabel’s kitchen, we talked about her work furnishing functional and welcoming homes for newly independent moms and kids. She also told us about the Christmas family that Humble sponsored this year, partly with the help of a grant from the Isabel Allende Foundation.

Check out these before and after photos and see why we were all moved to tears. It is nice to see money go to a cause where you see change effected so immediately and positively.

Last but not least, here’s a link to Humble’s donation page, in case you are looking for a cause this holiday season. We love Ana and the work she does, and every little bit counts!
