Scentsy raises funds and awareness for Autism Speaks

On Thursday, September 29, Autism Speaks received a visit from two special guests who travelled all the way from Idaho. Heidi and Orville Thompson, Co-owners of Scentsy, a rapidly growing party plan company offering a variety of home fragrance products, stopped by to present a check from sales of its Autism Speaks themed ‘Piece by Piece’ Charitable Cause Warmer for an amazing $533,880!

Twice a year, with the help of its Independent Consultants, Scentsy chooses a new cause to support. The Scentsy Consultants, many of whom have personal connections to autism, selected Autism Speaks as one of this year’s causes. As part of the campaign, Scentsy designed the ‘Piece by Piece’ Charitable Cause Warmer, adorned with colorful jigsaw pieces, to honor the mission of Autism Speaks. From April through August, one hundred percent of the net proceeds from the sale of each Charitable Cause Warmer went to support Autism Speaks. Thanks to the efforts of Scentsy and its 100,000 Independent Consultants, the campaign helped raise awareness around the country and much needed funds for the countless families affected by autism.

During their visit, Heidi and Orville were joined by two local Independent Consultants who took part in the campaign. The group toured Autism Speaks and met with staff. The day culminated with the check presentation ceremony and remarks by Heidi, Orville and Autism Speaks President Mark Roithmayr on the importance of supporting the autism community and overwhelming success of the Scentsy campaign. We’d like to extend our gratitude to all of our friends at Scentsy. It was truly a great day for both organizations!

    WOW! How great is that…wish I would have known, I would have purchased the warmer to support the cause. I wonder if they still offer the warmer’s. I know several people who are independent consultants with Scentsy – love their products too! Anyway I appreciate the support Scentsy has shown Autism Speaks – a worthy cause, thats for sure.

    It is early November, and yes, they have them. My son has Aspergers and I display one prominently in my home. Neat thing, it casts hearts of light on my walls. :)

    This is one reason why I really adore Scentsy is their willingness to give back.
