According to the Washington Post, Brenda and George Davis have built more than 500 custom-made cornhole sets over a two-year period. Like all of the pieces that come out of their workshop, these custom beanbag games are made and finished by hand and created through collaboration with the client. Boards can be decorated with the client’s favorite sports team’s colors and logos, but other designs have included musical bands, landscapes, and cartoon characters. The family also crafts traditional furniture pieces as well as custom pieces such as toy chests, wine cabinets, rocking chairs, and even birdhouses fashioned to look like football players' heads.

The secondhand clothing and furniture at Treasure Hunt Thrift Store has a purpose beyond its appearance. Not only do the discounted goods offer an affordable way for underserved families to dress and fill their home, but the sale of such items goes to benefit the shop's affiliate: the National Empowerment for Minorities Active in Community (NEMAC). NEMAC provides women in the metropolitan area with a safe place to receive shelter from abuse—whether it be substance abuse, emotional abuse, or physical abuse—supporting their return to independence. The organization's parenting- and life-mentoring programs, meanwhile, teach much-needed skills to empower those with developmental and mental disabilities.

THEARC Theater was created out of necessity. The first theater in Ward 8 in Washington, DC, it was founded to provide residents living east of the Anacostia River with expanded cultural opportunities and hide-and-seek spots. Constructed by local nonprofit Building Bridges Across the River, the theater aims to improve the lives of children and adults in southeast Washington through educational, health, and social-service programs such as free theater workshops and youth internships in technical theater management. Noting the tower of glass windows that crowns the entrance, the Washington Post called it "a veritable lighthouse of learning—a $27 million, 110,000-square-foot campus set on 16 beautiful green acres."

Brooklyn native Simone Forgione has photography in her blood. Growing up, she'd take pictures of the up-and-coming rappers who'd visit her father's portrait studio, and as her flash bulb sparked, she steadily fell deeper in love with the art form. Simone went on to snap hundreds of photos a day while managing various studios racking up more than 25 years of photography experience. With a wealth of managerial and artistic skills in tow, Simone tugged an enchanted camera from a mythic stone and realized it was time to forge a freelance career. Since then, Simone has nabbed portraits of Harry Belafonte, Reverend Al Sharpton, and Katt Williams, and although her diverse portfolio also spotlights event and fashion photos, portraits remain her passion. During sessions, clients can request help from a wardrobe and makeup artist, who help ensure clients come out looking their personal best.
