Scentsy Inc. invited members of the community to donate time, money or diapers during a Rock-a-Thon held at the company’s Meridian, Idaho, headquarters this weekend. The annual event raised more than $252,000 for the Idaho March of Dimes, an organization focused on pregnancy and baby health.
The wickless candle seller lined the sidewalk outside its headquarters with 70 rocking chairs and committed to donating $275 per chair, per hour—a total of $211,750. Scentsy also opened the event to the community, aiming to raise an additional $25 hourly per chair and bring the total to $231,000. The response surpassed expectations, with participants donating 12,000 diapers and infant sleep sacks in addition to topping $252,000 in donations.
