Limited edition 45-hour soy wax Eucalyptus & Lime candle. 100% of the price of this candle ($20 or 2 for $35) will be donated to Hoodstock, a local organization aiming to address inequality and systemic racism in Montreal North through initiatives such as a legal clinic and youth technology workshops. Their most recent initiative aims to mobilize youth to distribute protective supplies and aid with mental health outreach in Montreal North during the current pandemic, as it is the neighborhood hardest-hit by Covid-19 in the province.
At Dot & Lil, we have some work to do. It's often all flowers and fragrances around here, but we are joining our voice to those speaking out around the world against systemic racism and violence, police brutality and inequality. Not having addressed this publicly until now is surely a sign of privilege. Ongoing violence and the oppression of Black people, Indigenous people and People of Color is not something we can turn away from anymore. In an effort not to take attention away from violence and oppression as the issues at hand, we have left these candles very plain. This is not about the candle, it is about taking concrete action to address inequality.
The candles are $20 or two for $35, and that entire amount will be donated directly to Hoodstock Montreal. We are starting with 50 candles but hope that more are needed! When you light one, take some time to think about other concrete actions you could take to educate yourself about the systemic racism & oppression that takes place here & all over the world. We also encourage you to donate directly to organizations local to you, and to purchase from black-owned/led companies as a way of directly addressing inequality in our world. For our part, we definitely have ongoing work to do as an organization to figure out how we can be part of a solution. Black Lives Matter, and it is past time that we said it. xoxo, Anne + the Dot & Lil team
