Percentage of sales to benefit ReVision Urban Farm and Food for Free
Beginning on September 20 through October 25, 50 percent of sales from the limited edition DOT candle will be shared between the two organizations. The artwork on the DOT candle was designed by Haley and inspired by the Rainbow Swash designed by Sister Corita Kent. The Rainbow Swash artwork appears on the gas tank adjacent to Interstate 93 in Dorchester and is the largest, copyrighted piece of art in the world. Product photography services have been donated by Boston-based Golden Hour Photography, owned by Samantha Brooks.
Haley gained notability from his first drawing of the candy corn Citgo sign in 2007. His Boston themed doodles are now sold around Boston under his company, South End Textiles, which appear on mugs, stickers, magnets, and posters. Haley was first exposed to Food for Free through his nephew, a student in the Cambridge Public Schools. Through his experience, he has seen the positive impact the organization has made on many lives in the community.
In keeping with the traditional scents of autumn, the candle, which is 8 ounces, is a combination of Saffron, Apple, Black Currant, Blackberry, Vanilla, Anise, Patchouli and Amber, resulting in a mysterious and captivating scent! It will retail for $20 per jar, beginning on September 20 by visiting here.
