The Dasiy*Candle was designed in 2017 as a fundraiser for Dakin Humane Society.
Daisy was a rescue from Dakin and I wanted to give something back to the organization that brought me this wonderful dog! A candle seemed like a natural addition to the retail products I was already carrying in the salon. So, after a lot of work (it’s harder than you think to create an aroma that doesn’t smell like a cleaning product!!), the Dasiy* candle was introduced. It was wildly popular so it is now a salon staple and a standing fundraiser for Dakin.
Here’s the back story:
When I was a little girl, my dream was to bring every stray animal in the world home with me and that is still my dream to this day. Daisy, my beloved beagle/basset hound, was an animal shelter statistic until she was rescued by some kind souls in Texas and brought to Dakin Humane Society in Western Massachusetts. The Dasiy*candle was inspired by a drawing of Daisy done by my young friend, Maya, and is my way of recognizing all the animals who still need homes and love. Ten percent of net sales will be donated to Dakin so that more animals like Daisy can live the lives that they deserve. The animals and I thank you so much!
After the candle launched and it was clearly a success, I was asked if I could make the same candle but as a smaller, travel candle. So, about a year later, the Dasiy*-a-go-go candle was born!
Thank you to everyone who helped and continues to help make this fundraiser a success!
