We did it! We survived 2020, albeit filled with anxiety.
$5 of each candle sold goes to Feed New Orleans Second Line. So it’s helping people survive. And in a worst case apocalypse scenario, this puppy can stay lit for days. So it could help you survive. And it’s.... satire? Who knows... but it would look great on your mantle. It’s three fold survival wonderfulness.
A little bit more about Where your money is going (Shipping included just means MM&M covers shipping which is usually $8-12 per candle due to weight.):
Feed the Second Line seeks to provide food-love and employment to our culture-bearers: musicians, Mardi Gras Indians, Social Aid & Pleasure Club members, artists, and other cultural figures in the New Orleans community. We pair older, more vulnerable musicians and artists with their younger counterparts to assist them with shopping for their groceries and household needs. The benefits are two-fold: providing much needed groceries for free to the venerated culture-bearers of our great city, with contactless delivery to protect them from public exposure during the pandemic, while providing employment to the younger generation losing weeks, possibly months, of paying gigs.
The image is photoshopped then printed and pasted to a traditional "7 day" white altar candle. Placement may vary slightly as these are hand-cut and placed.
Please exercise caution when handling the candles and in general keep them in moderate conditions. While sturdy, ultimately these are art prints and are not able to withstand moist hot conditions.
