The design industry gives back for a great cause

The design industry is about connecting and helping people express themselves, and designers are creative people whose job it is to connect people with design. In an industry about expression, it’s not surprising that so many designers give back in so many ways. A group of Toronto decor and design professionals created the Home + Style Studio Tour and Sale – a way for the design community to connect through design to benefit Canadian HIV/AIDS causes.

Through various events, charitable contributions are raised. The Studio Tour, an exclusive access sale is always a tremendous success, allowing buyers to purchase decor items with proceeds going to the cause. Another way to participate as through the a no-purchase-required draw on the website.

Running through to December 31st, 2017, it’s the ideal time to visit and enter the three draws (no purchase required). The prizes are pretty spectacular – as amazing as the cause! So join the fight and you could win:
