Dear Friends,

Today the word "Shaker" has become synonymous with quality, but to the nineteenth century Shakers, there was much more to it than that.  To them it was a lifestyle, rooted in a deep reverence to God; a lifestyle of efficiency, simplicity, and compassion.  Their furniture was not an end but a means to the end, a method by which they could show compassion to the poor, orphaned, and widows of their time.

For this same end, the Whitney family has created Shaker with a Mission.  Following a tour of the devastating orphanages of Romania, we decided to turn our hobby and passion into a means to support the orphans of Romania.  (For pictures, click here.)

It is our intent at Shaker with a Mission to recreate the simplicity, efficiency, and quality of the original Shakers.  A major portion of the revenue will be given to World Vision Romania for the orphans' support.  We thank you greatly, and we hope you enjoy our website.
