Housing Works Design On A Dime

The Joy of Giving

Volunteering has been a passion of mine since I was a child. Giving back to my community and helping others in need is a value that I also incorporate into my professional life

I was so thrilled when we were asked to participate in the 14th Annual Design on a Dime.  This premiere event brings the furnishing and design industry together to advance Housing Works’ mission — to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS.  

Claudia Giselle Tejeda, owner & president of Claudia Giselle Design LLC, speaks about her participation in Housing Works Design On A Dime New York benefit and thanks all the amazing companies who donated to her vignette.

What is Housing Works Design on a Dime?

Design on a Dime is an annual charity event in which interior designers are challenged to create a vignette using donated merchandise. All merchandise is then sold and the proceeds benefit Housing Works. 

Since its inception the event has raised over $12 million.  This is our first year participating and I am so proud of what my team and I have accomplished.  So far we have over $80,000 worth of merchandise donated to our vignette!

Companies That Donated to our vignette

Some of our favorite companies made our vignette possible through the generosity of their donations.  Thank you!  Not only are they amazing companies with fine merchandise, their spirit of charity deserves to be recognized by all.
