HOLIDAY WISH

A Set of Candles for Kylie to continue shining a candle for her daughter

Posted Dec 1, 2020
Kylie has experienced a lot of loss in the past year and has been working so hard to provide for her daughter and herself. Ever since her oldest daughter passed away she has burned a candle for her every single day and goes through a lot of them. A gift card for Kylie to purchase candles so she is always able to burn a light for her daughter would be a beautiful holiday gift this season.

Kylie is 40 years old and lives in Grand Junction, CO

During her teenage years, Kylie entered foster care after enduring physical abuse, emotional abuse, and neglect. She finally made the decision to run away when child welfare stepped in. Shortly after, Kylie and her sister were then placed with their aunt and uncle. She and her sister went on to be the first in their family to both graduate high school and college. Kylie went on to work in the social services field, helping others be safe and successful.
