One in five women in America will experience domestic or sexual violence in her lifetime. Every nine seconds a woman is assaulted or beaten. Nearly twenty people per minute in America are physically abused by an intimate partner; during one year, this equates to over ten million men and women.
As a survivor, I am committed to my endeavor to help those who have been affected by such violence and abuse. For every candle sold I donate ten percent to my Shine the Light Campaign for Domestic Violence Awareness.
By shopping my collections you are not only supporting my small business but also making a difference - shining the light - in the efforts to broaden awareness for domestic violence.
On February 28, 2018 I formally established Shine the Light Foundation - a nonprofit organization dedicated to the education, outreach, and awareness for domestic violence.
