Make your home smell welcoming with Yankee Candle and help out a great cause at the same time.
- PJ Gach
Memorial Day is looming upon us. That holiday heralds parties and out of town visitors. Everyone loves throwing open their homes to entertain and visit. When you entertain, you want to make your home smell warm, welcoming and terrific, right? Yup. Try the new Yankee Candle Homefront Girl Collection. A dollar for each candle sold (up to $75,000) benefits the Homes for Our Troops non profit organization. This military charity provides mortgage-free specialty adapted homes for most severely injured veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan.
Homefront Girl was created by Gaby Juergens, an artist and career officer's wife. “A ‘homefront girl’ is someone who exemplifies the courage and strength of a nation,” said Gaby Juergens in a press release. “I created this collection to pay tribute to the families who are sharing their hero with the world and to the incredible sisterhood of women who support our men and women in uniform every day.”
Yankee Candle's Homefront Girl collection consist of 5 gorgeous candles and scents. They are: Give Thanks For Heroes That Never Stop Giving – Fair Winds: A wish for your loved one’s safe journey is reflected in the refreshing scent of a gentle sea breeze. Gratitude Never Out of Style – Watermelon Splash: This cool Independence Day favorite is a reminder of bold American spirit. Love My Hero – Coconut Kisses: Warm and sweet, this delicious blend of coconut and caramel is a hint of what awaits when your hero comes home. Not For Glory, Always For Country – Break of Day: Bright and fresh, like morning dew, it’s like the new hope each day brings. Support Our Troops – Hidden Leaves: The scent of flowers and sunshine recalls a secret garden of the heart where fond memories of your hero bloom.
The collection ranges in price from $15.99 for a regular tumbler candle to $27.99 for a large jar candle. You can find the candles in stores and online now. Visit the Yankee Candle Facebook page, to join the conversation.
