"3rd Times a Charm" Candle Fundraiser

L.A.D.S.O. has partnered with Hoosier Candle Company for a candle fundraiser that also raises awareness about Down syndrome. Produced locally and hand-made in Dayton, Indiana, the candles are 100% soy-based using soybeans from local farmers!

The candle's name is "3rd Times a Charm", representing the 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome and features a delicious scent combining caramelized pralines, cinnamon, and sticky bun! This candle would make great holiday gifts for teachers, family members... or even yourself!
