Harry Daniell Design supported Susan G. Koman this past year through their involvement in the New York Susan G. Koman Holiday House. This yearís house was located on 63rd Street at 5th Avenue. Harry Daniell Design was one of eighteen firms asked to showcase their talent. Images of their work can be seen under the portfolio section of this website.
The holiday Harry chose to celebrate was Breast Cancer Awareness Day. The concept for the room was "A Garden of Hope", with Harry believing that there is hope for a cure for breast cancer and survival.
Several years ago Harry Daniell became involved in Cerebral Palsy of New York State, as their volunteer designer. Leading an internal committee at Cerebral Palsy of New York State, Harry was called upon to design several residential homes for people with Cerebral Palsy. He also worked on a few independent volunteer projects that spanned from paint color selection, to built-in design to some commercial space projects. "This is not about high-end design, this is about making a space practical and calm for the residents of the space being designed. Cerebral Palsy is a broad term; most residents I work with are pretty severely afflicted." For more information on the organization, please go to: http://www.cpofnys.org

True to form, Harry believes that there is nothing greater than feeling at home and comfortable in your own space. Through this belief, Harry has generously volunteered his services to survivorís of Domestic Violence, after theyíve formally and permanently decided to leave the abusive situation and embark on a new path.
ďPeople often ask how I got involved. It was by accident. A survivor of domestic violence reached out asking for help. I reached back and embarked on a journey that Iíve since continued. Domestic Violence and abusive relationships come in all shapes and sizes. Itís not for me to judge. Not having any first hand or personal knowledge of domestic violence or abuse, I didnít know what I was getting into exactly. The first person I helped made me realize what a huge step she was taking in moving forward. It was deeply profound, saddening and inspiring at the same time. Sad only because she was so beautiful on the inside and outside. I couldnít imagine somebody who appeared so strong to have been so weak at one point in her life.Ē
