We are a husband/wife team living in North San Diego with our two kids. Our business was born out of a desire for simple centerpieces & lighting for an outdoor wine tasting party. Our first set of lights was made in the summer of 2015. This turned into a hobby, repurposing wine bottles threaded with tiny firefly LEDs. We gifted some to friends and family, and proceeded to set up an Etsy shop. Shortly after we launched, we made our first few sales in January 2016. Our focus began to shift and we wondered how this business could be used to bless others.
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”
We had recently learned of a degenerative disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). It is similar to ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and is the leading genetic cause of death in babies and young children. We were inspired by The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation, a 100% nonprofit dedicated to changing the future of SMA.
20% of every purchase benefits The GSF. You can read more about SMA, The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation, and ways you can help at TheGSF.org.
