Today marks the end of our first month. We launched lavelaa in the middle of September with our fall drop of pumpkin anis, nuez, and canela scented candles. We sold a total of 53 candles! Thank you to everyone who has supported our small business.

We committed to fifty cents from every candle sold being used to make meals for people in need. We spent a little over that and made 96 sandwiches that we wrapped and hand delivered to people in our neighborhood.

We live in the city of Denver and, like cities across the US, homelessness is a huge issue. We are only a small business with small impact, but we drove 5 minutes from our Denver apartment to drop off meals to a homeless camp a few blocks away.

We will continue to commit a portion of our revenue to making food for people in need.
