Have you ever thought of painting a mural in a child’s room but been intimidated by the possibility of making a terrible mess of the walls? I have! So I was excited to learn about My Wonderful Walls, the Chattanooga, Tennessee based business of artist and designer, Michael Goins. My Wonderful Walls specializes in wall stencil kits that will help you easily transform any wall into a beautiful, professional looking wall mural.
I learned of My Wonderful Walls after being contacted by Stephanie Goins about their Growing through Giving program. They have partnered with the T.C. Thompson’s Children’s Hospital, a local hospital providing urgent care to kids in the Tennessee Valley. They donate and install canvas murals in the hospital every month, as currently many of the children’s rooms are bare. I am a major believer in the power of art to lift the spirit and engage the heart and I can’t imagine anyone who needs that more then a sick child and their terrified families! So of course I was more then happy to share their program with Oh My! Handmade readers. It is a wonderful example about the importance of growing your business through giving, no matter what your product or service is.
I have a strong social conscience and love to be an active part of my community, now that I am editing Oh My! Handmade I wanted to share that passion in some way. So I created the Oh My! Handmade Holidays giveaway, which has already generated a lot of positive growth for our online community. Are you growing your business through giving or planning to in the future? I would love to know!
