I grew up in Richmond, VA with a single mother that worked many hours in manufacturing. While my mother was awesome, there was never time for creative activities, crafts, or even much patience to sit and interact in activities after working long shifts. I grew up always saying “I’m not creative” and “I’m a thinker, not a creative” or "my sister got all the creative genes" and truly believed it. Until I got into energy healing work for myself. As I learned more about energy healing and the law of attraction, I learned more about “I am” and “I can” positive thinking and affirmations. This challenged me to face that negative thought of NOT being creative, and I tried candle-making.
Needless to say, two years later, I am here looking for funding to open my first brick-and-mortar store for my very own energy candle business. Mixing two things I’ve struggled with in my past, and constantly with intention work on in my life, Patience and Creativity. I love that in facing a negative judgment and characteristic of myself, I found my passion.
My dream is to expand my currently online-only business into a brick-and-mortar store. This will help with fulfilling orders more quickly and allowing customers to come in and experience the energy. I love being able to service many states across the nation online but would LOVE to help heal my community with positive energy, great candles, and all other products and services I provide. I want a space of shopping with purpose and intention where you feel the energy of every item purchased.
WHY AM I ASKING FOR DONATIONS?
I am asking for donations at this time because the ideal location has come available (not the pictured location). At the same time, deliveries have become a bit overwhelming. Having a location will allow my locals to come in and pick up versus the feeling of being overwhelmed by my creating, executing, and delivering.
Donations will allow me to secure a building, buy all supplies, fixtures, and decor to open the doors of Creative Culture’s new home. If I am able to raise enough money, the funds will help this young, black woman expand her online energy candle business into a local RVA store location.
