Thank you Lamp Plus!

Thank you Lamps Plus for your generous donation and small video on the Good Shepherd Project. Please click here to read the press release and view the video of Susie Ho's room.

Taken from the press release:, the leading online retailer of decorative lighting and home d├ęcor accessories, announced its involvement with the Good Shepherd Charity Design Project in Los Angeles. The project benefits the Good Shepherd Center for homeless Women and Children, renovating rooms used as temporary shelter by victims of domestic abuse and homelessness.

Lamps Plus donated table lamps, lighting fixtures and home furnishings to the shelter. The project renovated 30 single occupancy rooms at the shelter’s downtown location, and was managed by interior designer Vanessa De Vargas, and consultant/writer/editor Vanessa Kogevinas of the Los Angeles-based Designers Networking Group (DNG).

Each room was assigned to a local area designer, who was given one month to complete their room redesign. 10 of the rooms were completed in May, another 10 in June and the final 10 unveiled in July. Angela Hsu, Lamps Plus Vice President of Internet Marketing, noted that, “As a company located in Los Angeles, Lamps Plus is very pleased to have been a part of this charitable project, which benefits so many women and children in our community on an ongoing basis.”
