In support of Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation (SCHF) Sydney Sick Kids Appeal, Ecoya has designed a Special Edition candle and fragrance.
The appeal, which runs from today, May 23, until June 30, shines a light on kids’ health and raises vital funds for sick kids and families receiving treatment or care through the network of children’s hospitals and paediatric health services across New South Wales.
Ecoya, an Australasian fragrance house designed in New Zealand and made in Australia, collaborated with SCHF’S Art Program and young oncology patient, Chelsea, on this special edition Peach & Patchouli fragranced candle.
Chelsea was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow, at just seven years old. From her bed in the hospital, she painted a water-coloured garden featuring flowers and butterflies which the Ecoya design team then incorporated onto the packaging.
Melinda, Chelsea’s mother, said: “At the time she was probably dreaming of getting outside again.”
The SCHF Art program is an art in health service at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick.
The program is free to be enjoyed by patients and they transform the hospital by lining their walls with a permanent collection consisting of over 900 artworks, as well as seasonal exhibitions.
These help to create a vibrant, reassuring and colourful place of healing and culture, where children and young adults feel safe and happy.
The candle is a soft citrus scent with notes of mandarin orange, bergamot, red berries and peach, atop a base of patchouli, amber and musk, and was created to complement the very special artwork by Chelsea.
All proceeds from the sale of this candle will go directly to Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation.
Shop the Special Edition candle exclusively at ecoya.com.au, schf.org.au and selected David Jones stores. Additionally, $2 from each purchase made at ecoya.com.au until June 30 will be donated to Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation.
