The Restored Gala is a unique event with a meaningful mission: to restore hope to women in Haiti. Twenty-five Hope Restorers have embarked on a journey to fulfill this mission by restoring an item that the world would deem as junk and raise $1,000 in the process.  The money they raise will be matched by a generous donor, and their restored pieces will be auctioned off at the Gala on September 23, 2017. Join us by getting your tickets for the event and helping Justina reach her goal by donating to her campaign below.

Hello!  My name is Justina Malin and I am happy to be restoring this vintage desk for Nadege’s Restored Gala coming up in September.  I believe whole heartedly in the vision behind Nadege so its a pleasure to be apart of this event again for its second year running!  Last year I restored an item that required me to rely on painting skills I hadn’t used in years…working on that piece brought creativity back into my life.  And in looking back, I know it altered the trajectory of my path, and I couldn’t be more grateful for that.

A little about me: I live and work in Kokomo, Indiana.  I am a new momma to 3 month old Charley, and wife to Jonathon.  We love our local church and community!  I am excited to see how everyone’s items will be transformed over the next few months.  You can follow my progress on Instagram and Facebook @justina.malin.
