The idea for Colorful Kidz started several years ago, my name is Caren Berry and for over 25 years I have been an interior designer. After returning home from volunteering at an orphanage in India I knew I wanted to do something more to help children. I contacted my local church and explained to the secretary that I was looking to makeover a room for a child in need. She told me they were helping a family transition out of a shelter into public housing. She said that the church had provided furniture but that they still needed linens and other things. She arranged for me to meet the family with the help of an interpreter. I met two young brothers, one whom loved baseball and the other airplanes. Later, when the boys saw their room makeover, their joy was immeasurable. It was on that day that Colorful Kidz was born. Today Colorful Kidz is 501(c) 3 children's nonprofit, we have a 1000 sq. foot retail space and workshop located in East Sandwich, Massachusetts. Our mission is to create room makeovers for children and teenagers in need on Cape Cod.
