Habitat for Humanity Canada.
Whirlpool(R) Home Appliances commissioned three leading Canadian design

Custom Laundry Options.

used for so much more than just washing and drying clothes - it's the hub of a
lot of household activity," says Warrington Ellacott, Senior Marketing
Manager, Whirlpool Canada. "We hope the Dream Laundry Rooms inspire Canadians
to reimagine and reinvent their own laundry space. No matter what kind of
laundry room you have, there are simple and creative ways to make the space
work for you."
The rooms are being displayed at the National Home Show in Toronto from
April 13 to April 22, 2007. Canadians across the country can also visit

auction proceeds to Habitat for Humanity Canada.
"We're pleased to be able to support Habitat for Humanity Canada through
our Dream Laundry Rooms auction," explains Ellacott. "It's a natural extension
of our longstanding partnership. We're so proud to be able to build houses and
build hope alongside this great organization." Whirlpool Canada provides a
