Equally as impressive as the light itself, is the Stella Lighting, Inc commitment to giving backing to the community.

Please read on to learn more about Stella Lighting and the roots behind its partnership with Project Linus. In the words of Nathan Wiednmann, Stella Lighting’s Founder & President…

WHY THE PLEDGE?

In 2012, Stella Lighting Inc was created. Partially named after the word “star” in Latin, and partially named after our founders sixth child, baby Stella. What began as an individual selling lights out of the back of a pick-up, quickly evolved into an industry leader in personal lighting solutions for the arts, represented in all fifty states, multiple countries and an industry leader in innovative lighting. In the end, Stella Lighting has been bountifully blessed, and we wanted to find a way to give back to a community of people who have helped us get to where we are today.

We had the opportunity to meet the Portland, OR/Vancouver, WA chapter [coordinator] of Project Linus Mrs. Jodene Cook at the 2012 Pacific Northwest Quilting Expo. It became instantly evident to me that Jodene had a servant’s heart, a gracious attitude and commitment to what she had a passion for. Needless to say, both Jodene and her cause quickly inspired me. Jodene and her team of volunteers, were sewing fabric scraps into quilt blocks, preparing them to be made into quilts for children. During the show we noticed how dark it was surrounding the sewing machines that were being used. We felt it was appropriate to drop off a few lights to provide some auxiliary illumination for the machines and the volunteers. Upon delivery and set up of the lights, I was met with outspoken appreciation. Upon the shows end, we had established a new friendship and foundation between the companies. Over the past couple years, our paths have crossed and my admiration for Jodene and Project Linus has grown.

As Stella Lighting continued to gain traction in the market place, and we explored ways to give something back to a community that had supported us so much, Jodene and Project Linus were the first organization that we reached out to.

In the end, I discussed my vision with my wife Stacy, our team at Stella Lighting and ultimately identified a couple of key things that we wanted to accomplish with the pledge. Below are the key elements:

  1. Provide cash to Project Linus
  2. Reach Project Linus at a “chapter level,” recognizing the efforts of those chapter coordinators and associated volunteers
  3. Promote the exposure of Project Linus National
  4. Expand the Stella Lighting brand

In the end, we commit to this pledge with great enthusiasm and passion for Project Linus, the work they do for children, and they volunteers whom make it all possible.

Respectfully submitted

Nathan Wiedenmann
President
Stella Lighting Inc.
