As the new year was approaching I decided to revisit my candle formulations. I reformulated Be Still and Heal to offer a little more aromatherapy and I am offering an unscented candle as well called Clarity. The candles that have the original formula are on sale now! They will be 20% off. 20% OF YOUR PURCHASE HELPS ILLUMINATE THE WORLD. From now until June I am purchasing books for the local schools. Below is the information about my cause.
During the months of September through June I will be using 20% of my sales from candles to purchase books about history that I feel need to be in our children’s libraries. Full disclosure these 3 schools are all public schools that my children attend. The three schools are Davenport Eisenhower Elementary, Davenport Sudlow Intermediate, and Davenport Central High School. Along with my children these schools also serve many children in our community.
  • Davenport Eisenhower Elementary serves over 500 students.
  • Davenport Sudlow Intermediate serves well over 500 students.
  • Davenport Central High School serves well over 1500 students.
The numbers aren’t exact at the moment due to the current pandemic. I have spoken to all three schools and these are the numbers they have at the present moment.
The books that I have purchased for donation are:
  • Finish the Fight!: The Brave and Revolutionary Women Who Fought for the Right to Vote by Veronica Chambers
  • Antiracist Baby Picture Book by Ibram X. Kendi and Ashley Lukashevsky
  • Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You: A Remix of the National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi
  • Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America by Ibram X. Kendi
  • Displacement by Kiki Hughes

  • A Young People’s History of the United States: Columbus to the War on Terror by Howard Zinn
  • Prairie Lotus by Linda Sue Park

More books may be added as the months progress. Please reach out with any questions. You can purchase candles in my studio. I am following Covid-19 safety suggestions. I can also deliver in the Quad City area.
