We Are Most Grateful
For Your Support

Step One

Gather the Supplies

Once a patient is in need and their unique interests are identified, the first step to a successful dec’ing is assembling a great team and finding the right decorations.

Step Two

Surprise the Patient

The goal is to transform a boring hospital room into a cozier, more personalized healing place that is filled with things that the patient will find comforting during their extended hospital stay.

Step Three

Create A Healing Place

Patients can look forward to enjoying their newly decorated hospital room, and once discharged, they can take all of their decorations with them.

Dell Children's Kick Off

Dec My Room had a fantastic time kicking off at Dell Children's Medical Center in Austin, Texas on June 1st. A team of 10 volunteers decorated 8 patient rooms with themes from Spiderman and dinosaurs for a 6 year old, all the unicorns and princesses for a 3 year old and two 4 year olds (popular theme!), Honduran futbol, motorcycles and wrestling for a 17 year old, lady bugs for a 13 year old, Legos and Super Mario for a 10 year old! So fun to personalize each space!

KXAN Austin covered the kick off:


All in the Family

The mother daughter duo of Susan and Kendall Plank are still very active and involved in all areas of Dec My Room. It holds their passion, and they love being able to see the direct impact their "one-time idea" has on both pediatric patients and their loved ones. They are very excited to be currently working on Dec My Room's largest annual fundraiser, Kick Up Your Boots for Kids, on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at the Redneck Country Club.


San Fran Sharks Event

What a great night at the Shark Tank! Dec My Room SF Bay Area chapter was the beneficiary of the the Sharks Foundation 50/50 raffle. $6,900 was raised to create healing places for kiddos in the hospital. Giant shout out to Debbie Cohen for her heroic work on the grant proposal, which gave Dec the opportunity to be at the game. Dec My Room volunteers showed up in force to sell raffle tickets: Lisa Teglia-Cole, Jess Teglia, Nancy Larsson, Debbie Burkholder, Tate Holt, Trish Stempel; along with Wendy Reese Christensen from UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital SF, and Romy Andrea, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. Y'all have mad raffle selling ticket skills -- and you crushed it!
