Gina's People: Deck My Room

Posted: Updated:

This week in Gina's People, we meet a group of ladies who could be described as the dream team of decorators. But no one ever hired them to do the job. They just do it. 

They arrive at Children's Hospital Los Angeles with wagons full of stuff, boys and girls are going to love. Decorator Jennifer Hull says, "I have the best job in the world. I get to make people happy. What's better than that?"

Hull started 'Deck My Room' this past March. She and her girlfriends decorate the rooms of kids who are staying at Children's Hospital. These are children with serious medical conditions. The ladies of 'Deck My Room' find out what the kids like and they get to work. In less than one hour, they transform a dreary hospital room into beautiful explosions of pink and blue.  The children are always pleasantly surprised. Hull says she started doing this for one single reason, "Just to bring happiness, that's what we're here on this earth to bring love and bring happiness. For me, I just feel inspired, every day I get to be here." 

So far, they've decorated 55 rooms since they started.  All of the money comes from private donations.  If you'd like to help, please contact Jenny on her personal e-mail. Or at the Deck My Room official website.

  • Belgian artist Baloji kicks off tour in New York

    Belgian artist Baloji kicks off tour in New York

    To say the 6 feet 5 inch Baloji has a presence would be an understatement. The Belgian artist commands the stage with his mix of hip hop, funk, and rap. The 34-year-old rocked out Webster Hall back in January. Now he's back in New York City kicking off a month-long tour. "It's one of the most inspiring cities on Earth so it's always great to be here," Baloji says.

    First look at electric carriage that may replace horse buggies

    New York has never known a Central Park without that rhythmic click-clacking. But if Mayor Bill de Blasio gets his way, he'll put those hooves out to pasture, replacing them with a different noise-maker. Actually, excluding its horn the electric carriage makes little noise at all. It runs on lithium-ion batteries, has a variable-speed a/c motor, and is relatively silent, says Jason Wenig.
