This candle means more to us than most. Each one of us is aware of the hardships and suffering experienced during this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic, especially amongst the most vulnerable. In response to this crisis, we have collaborated with GiveDirectly & Stitch Design Co to produce our GiveDirectly Relief Candle. 100% of ALL the proceeds will be going to GiveDirectly's Project 100 which is by far, the most ambitious COVID-19 private direct payments initiative to date in the United States.
While COVID-19 has been tough on everyone, it has been particularly disastrous for SNAP recipients, whose clientele are single mothers and their children, many of whom were already barely making ends meet. More than half of users report they only have a few days of food/money on hand, and that stable housing is at risk. GiveDirectly works by giving a one-time cash donation to as many SNAP recipients as possible across America.
Their goal is to fund 100k families in the United States and to date, they have funded 52.3k of those they are seeking to reach. We at Ethics Supply Co. & Stitch Design Co. would like to help them meet that goal and are honored to be a part of their efforts during this time.
