500 LIGHTS HOME
As we enter this season of joy, life, and light, I am excited to once again partner with Thistle Farms to help women survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction find healing, hope, and freedom.
LIGHT THE WAY HOME
LET'S DO IT AGAIN!
This is the 7th year of this partnership! Each year, we exceeded our goal of selling 500 candles within days of announcing the campaign.
I'm excited to do it again this year!
YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN THE VIGIL
500 CANDLES IN 5 DAYS
Favorite scents like Lavender, Cinnamon Cedar + Three Trees. PLUS 3 new scents: Santal Amber, Guava Honey + Sea Salt Violet.
This candle isn't just a candle.
It's a light for the way home.
It's a job. It's a purpose. It's a skill.
It's an art. It's hope.
"Thistles are really prickly around the sides. When I was in my addiction if you got too close to me I would hurt you in one way or the other.
But thistles are survivor weeds. And we're survivors. Thistles grow through concrete. They survive drought.
I survived the abuse. The beatings. I survived the addiction. So I'm a survivor.
And thistles bloom into something beautiful."
