Treger Strasberg never set out to create a nonprofit — nor did she plan to lead a life helping veterans and families experiencing homelessness. All she knew is she wanted to do something for a friend, who in 2009, confided in her that she and her children had no place to go. But as Treger set out to find a space for them to lay their heads, her newfound sense of purpose was met by a sobering reality. She would go home to tuck her own children into their beds; her friend's children would have to lie down on an empty floor.
How It Works
Treger began collecting items of her own that might make the foreign feel a little more familiar, working tirelessly to source donations however she could. Eventually, through love, intention, and the kindness of many, she furnished and decorated their empty house — and through the gratitude of her friend, found that design can turn a house into a home.
Today, with the help of countless volunteers, Treger's nonprofit, Humble Design, has done for over 7,000 moms, dads, kids, and veterans exiting shelters, what she did for her own close friend. We are honored to partner with Humble Design to help bring a sense of permanence and belonging to many more families, as they finally find that place that feels like home. That's why, for every Poster Print you create between now and November 10, we're donating one to Humble Design to personalize for a family.
