Blissful Bedrooms

Jesus’s bedroom makeover

UPDATE!!! During the weekend of June 26-27, 2010, Jesus’ dream bedroom makeover took place! The bedroom was beyond Jesus’ wildest dreams – and his Grandpa (who shares the room with him) was just as astounded! The entire Blissful Bedrooms team couldn’t have been happier to give this gift to the most dedicated Yankees fan we know. It is our hope that Jesus, his grandpa, and Georgie watch many great Yankees victories together in this Yankees shrine :)


Please take a moment to view Before & After pictures of Jesus' bedroom, as well as pictures of the process.


On 6/1/10, Jesus had his dream come true, he met his heroes in blue pin stripes, The Yankees. The Yankees Organization showed their support for Jesus and Blissful Bedrooms by responding to our letter and inviting Jesus to the stadium to meet the team during batting practice and then watch them play a winning game. He not only went home with a baseball containing the players autographs, but also a baseball bat signed right before his eyes by his favorite player of all - Alex Rodriguez. What a perfect prelude to Jesus' Blissful Bedroom makeover, which will take place during the weekend of 6/26-6/27. At that time, a team of dedicated and talented volunteers will create the Yankees-themed bedroom of Jesus' dreams. When he lies in his bed at night and looks around his room he will think about the day he met the New York champions and how special and loved he is. Thank you Yankees for showing how much you care!

Thank you to all of the amazing people who made this spectacular event possible! Whether you volunteered your time, donated money, or donated products and services, we are forever grateful and couldn't have done it without you.

Thank you to all of the talented & dedicated volunteers who contributed to Jesus’ makeover!
