In addition, Stella has created a Tiffany Blue lamp that will be sold in limited quantities (250 to be specific); each numbered, logoed, packaged and delivered. $100 from each lamp will be sent to Project Linus, a non-profit organization with chapters nationwide.
In addition, Stella is sending each chapter head (300+) a Stella Lamp as a token of appreciation; recognizing that they are the backbone of Project Linus National. Volunteers with Project Linus make blankets for children in need.
