Announcing Consults for a Cause

Originally published in Septemeber 2020, this post is updated with every new campaign.

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.  

~Maya Angelou

Home” shapes us profoundly, so spaces that support and serve us have always been the cornerstone of The Refreshed Home. 

Consults for a Cause started as a fund-raiser to help victims of tragic events. Consults for a Cause: Feeding WestchesterEarly recipients were NY’s Superstorm Sandy in 2012, and Moore OK  residents hit by the E5 tornado in 2013.

2020 has proven to be a year like no other. With economic implications growing daily, The Refreshed Home has decided to make Consults for a Cause a fixture to its business model.

Simply, every campaign re-directs eight hours of consult fees directly to a local  501c3 charity. At the end of the consult, clients are invited to write a check to the charity instead of to The Refreshed Home. Those who opt for the former

  • Don’t pay sales tax due for consult services
  • Receive the deduction
  • Make the world a better place

In 2021 Consults for a Cause saw 34 clients re-direct $12, 497 to 8 local charities. Even better, 2022 is off to a strong start with over $2100 going to Americares.

Even in Westchester County the needs are great, here are past recipients. Watch to see who’s next! OR if you’re a local business who’d like to start your own giving back program, happy to share my experiences with you!
