EACH CANDLE COMES WITH A SEED-PAPER BOOKMARK TO PLANT IN YOUR EMPTY CANDLE JAR AFTERWARDS.
100% OF THE NET PROCEEDS OF THIS SPECIAL CANDLE GO TO:
The Hidden Opponent— An accredited non-profit & advocacy group raising awareness for student-athlete mental health and addressing the stigma within sports culture through advocacy, education, and support.
The Dinner Party— An organization transforming some of our hardest conversations and isolating experiences surrounding loss into sources of community support, candid conversation, and forward movement using the age-old practice of gathering and breaking bread.
Unite Our Light’sgoal is to highlight the diversity of mental health experiences of athletes. We can't fully be together in this without recognizing and sitting with the expansive details of our individual stories. We're on a mission to raise money and hopeful awareness for athlete mental health via a custom-scented candle withathlete-producedartwork as the label. We envision creating a space for all members of the athlete community to feel (and via their candle, physically hold) grief, loss, struggle, light, and hope.Let’s unite our light together.
If you’ve lost someone to suicide, struggled with mental health, or know someone who does —we need you. Buy for a friend, teammate, coach, parent, colleague, or yourself.
