On November 3, 2019, seven junior reporters from Chinese American Parent Association of Montgomery County held a fundraising event at CCACC’s anniversary celebration. The balance lamp was the feature item that was sold to the passersby. Many took interest in the modern style lamp that seemed to “magically” light up when the two middle balls met.

The lamp’s innovative design allows it to be turned on by suspending the two magnetic balls close to each other.

Many were in awe at how the lamp functioned in such an interesting way.

The lamp was really well received, with a total of 15 sold. People wanted to buy the lamps for themselves, or even their children as holiday gifts. The stunning red, simplistic white, and sophisticated wood lamp drew the attention of a wide variety of ages. 

If interested in supporting the JRC and buying a lamp, please contact:

White- $26, Red- $26, Wood- $45. These prices are way more competitive than the prices listed on Amazon.
