A Light for Gaza - Fundraising Candle for the PCRF
As a volunteer for our local PCRF chapter, I have a special place in my heart for Palestine, especially the children. In over 6 years of service to the organization, I have worked with amazing local volunteers who have both helped children secure prosthetics, and support the building of medical infrastructure for children that would not otherwise have access to it.
From what we are hearing from PCRF workers in Gaza and the West Bank, the situation is quite dire and they are asking for emergency funding.
If you can donate directly, I encourage you to give at www.pcrf.net - PCRF is a non-religious, non-political, secular organization that is rated 4 stars by Charity Navigator, meaning they have been shown to responsibly manage finances and deliver on their mission!
Because we love this organization so much, the children that we have served both here and abroad, we invite you to share what you can, and consider purchasing a candle from us to help send much needed supplies to children in need.
$17 of every candle is donated directly to the PCRF - we are covering the cost of supplies and donating our time (even mini Niyyah tabbed all of our wicks tonight!)
This is the FIFTH round of these candles, and we wanted to include some fruity scents this time. There are two options.
Watermelon berry is sweeter of the two, and represents the use of the watermelon as the colors of the Palestinian flag match it!
Clean Green Citrus includes notes of Citrus, Mokara, and Bamboo - it's a lovely spa like scent that I enjoy after cleaning.
Light with a prayer, and remember that thoughts and prayers mixed with a little money and action is a step beyond what we have traditionally seen in the past.
This is an 8 ounce candle made with paraffin free coconut wax. As always, it is made with non toxic fragrances, and this candle features a single cotton wick. This candle has a 40 hour burn time (in 4 hour increments, of course).
Thank you for looking, and considering helping a cause that is dear to my heart.
