The Museum of the Home is a great place for interiors professionals to come together to support such a worthwhile cause. “Stephanie Harvey, head of the London Homeless Collective’s fundraising, said that the partnership between the Museum of the Home and the London Homeless Collective would “educate, drive social change.” “The Yard Sale is a great example of our partnership in motion; it will raise money, create opportunities, and change perceptions of homelessness people.”
