Scentsy Announces Partnership with Habitat for Humanity
Through sale of flameless candle, 120,000 consultants aim to help Habitat make affordable homeownership possible for more families
AURORA, IL and ATLANTA, September 15, 2017 /3BL Media/ – International fragrance company, Scentsy, Inc. is teaming up with Habitat for Humanity for a yearlong partnership to help create a world where more families will have a place to call home.
Each year Scentsy partners with a charitable organization and creates a cause warmer. The "Built With Love" warmer is a porcelain-white house warmer, which is a wickless, flameless candle that glows when lit. A total of $9 from the sale of every "Built With Love" warmer will be donated to Habitat’s Global Impact Fund.
“We believe that healthy and happy families fuel vibrant communities, which is why we are excited to partner with Habitat for Humanity,” said Scentsy Co-owner Heidi Thompson. “This partnership aligns with our brand values and will provide our consultants and customers with a direct opportunity to help families thrive.”
Scentsy has nearly 120,000 consultants and many are excited to share the warmer and share their time by volunteering for Habitat. “I love, love our charitable causes,” said Dawn Edmondson, Scentsy consultant from Wilson, North Carolina. “They give us a chance to give back, to live up to our company motto to ‘give more than we receive.’”
“We are grateful to have Scentsy join us as a new corporate partner,” said Colleen Finn Ridenour, senior vice president of Development, Habitat for Humanity International. “Through their vast network of consultants, they will be engaging their customers in supporting our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to call home.”
The "Built with Love" warmer is available now through Scentsy consultants. Visit scentsy.com/builtwithlove for more information.
About Habitat for Humanity
Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots effort on a community farm in southern Georgia. The Christian housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in more than 1,300 communities throughout the U.S. and in more than 70 countries. Families and individuals in need of a hand up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower. To learn more, visit habitat.org.
