American and Canadian ASP Community to Lend a Staging Hand during the IAHSP Community Worldwide Staging Community Service Week™
From September 12 until September 19, 2009, Accredited Staging Professionals, ASPs, across the United States and Canada will join forces to work together to help an organization, a non profit group or families in need in their own communities by giving freely of their time, service, and ASP Staging talent to Stage® to Live® in places where we are needed. ASPs do this together as chapter members of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP) through the IAHSP Foundation.
“During the IAHSP Worldwide Staging Community Service Week®, we are honored to stop and show how much we care through this annual event of giving and sharing of our time and talent where we live and work to those that need us. Our motto through this event is to “Think Globally and Act Locally” through the world of ASP Home Staging. This is a way we can give back at the local level. Staging To Live® is a process of de-cluttering, cleaning, painting, and energizing the space, rooms, and homes of those who live there. We do this creatively the ASP Way using what people have and also asking our ASP Vendors to contribute their supplies, time and talent too where possible.
As Accredited Staging Professionals and Accredited Staging Professional Masters and Members of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals, we believe in our communities and strive to bring our best to all those we serve in our WWSSW® week as well as throughout the year in our ASP Home Staging businesses.”
