Oh, how I love Home Depot—let me count the ways:
• It’s my go-to spot for the herbs, flowers, and vegetables Lila, Mari, and I plant in our summer container garden
• It’s where I found these AWESOME SCONCES that look super cutie hanging over my breakfast bar in the kitchen
• I found marble tiles similar to the ones shown in THIS PICTURE for $1 a piece. Seriously. I have them in the master bath and the dining room floors. Crazy.
And now, yet another reason to love Home Depot: Now through Feb. 28, The Home Depot is offering a commemorative “Dream” gift card celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. When consumers purchase the collector’s edition “Dream” gift card, The Home Depot will donate five percent of all sales to the Atlanta-based Center for Civil and Human Rights, up to $1 million dollars. The donation will assist in the building of a permanent exhibition home for more than 10,000 of MLK’s personal writings and papers, among them 7,000 handwritten notes spanning from 1946 to 1968. The collection also includes drafts of his "I Have a Dream" speech, his "Letter from a Birmingham Jail," other theological writings and his Nobel Peace Prize addresses. The new center, which will also commemorate the groundbreaking contributions of Atlantans and Georgians to the historic struggle for African-American freedom and equality, will cost in excess of $125 million to build, so every dime—including those collected from proceeds from the sales of the special Home Depot “Dream” gift cards—will count.
To help spread the word, Home Depot and MyBrownBaby are partnering to offer a $50 gift card to one lucky MyBrownBaby reader. Here’s how you get your chance to win: Visit the Center for Civil and Human Rights and leave a comment about something you learned by 11:59 p.m. EST on Sunday, February 15, 2009.
