Sorry we've been neglecting the blog lately. We've been really busy building houses and getting them all over the world. (BTW - a good way to stay up to date on what we've been up to is our Facebook page
- like us, whydontcha.)
And today something came into the offices that reminded us just why we work as hard as we do. Let me tell you, it got pretty teary eyed in the offices when we read this:
Dear Kids Crooked House,
My daughter was in treatment at NIH in Bethesda, MD, and we stayed at the Children’s Inn - our room had a view of the playground & she loved your houses! She is in a wheelchair and we pushed her in and out - she loved the size and shapes!
I am sure a lot of your fans already know about all the good things you do, but it is always fun to read about how children react to your houses (I spent a lot of time looking at your site myself!). I wish we had taken pictures of her in your house - she can not speak, and facial expressions are a big part of how we communicate - her smile was a mile wide! I think she loved the size, and the porch/doorway seemed to especially thrill her. We are going to start saving birthday and Christmas money to see if we can get enough together to get her one of her own someday. You have a great product, and we love that we got a chance to play during a very stressful time medically. It was a wonderful retreat - keep up the good work!
Thanks Mark! You just made our week! Of course we'd like to sell enough houses so that all of us can make a decent living, but sometimes it's enough to know there are kids out there who just light up when they see our stuff. Kids Crooked Houses make kids happy - that's something we've never doubted.
