Be The Rainbow

Social

Woodbridge Furniture, 200 Steele, Floor 3, 301

Shuttle Stop: 17 (Red Line)

From the Maya Angelou quote: "Try to be the Rainbow in Someone's Cloud", make a difference by stepping into our Rainbow Room. Participate by leaving a prayer, a note of gratitude, a positive thought pinned to the wall & for each visit, Woodbridge will donate $1 to HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH. Fall in love with a sliver of our rainbow? We are also selling all 25 of our custom painted pieces of furniture with 10% of each sale contributing to the donation. Through the container shortage, raw materials increase, the Delta variant, the trucking delays it can feel like we're waiting for the rain to stop. Here's to dreaming of sunnier days, finding the joy where we are and feeling the hope rainbows bring.
