Gold Canyon Candles - for a Good Cause and a giveaway (candle and $10 Amazon card)

Many of you across the country (and world) have heard about the recent tragedy to befall us here in Prescott, Arizona.  Nineteen members of our local twenty-man Granite Mountain Hot Shot crew were killed in the Yarnell fire on June 30, 2013.  Hundreds of buildings and structures burned in that same fire, displacing many people.  It has been a really emotional time for us here.  At the same time I'm so proud of how our small community has banded together to show our support and raise money for the families of these fallen heroes as well as the many people that have lost their homes and businesses. 
I would like to do my part to help.  As a Gold Canyon Candles consultant, I have the ability to donate my commission.  I set up a Hot Shots Benefit party on my Consultant site at  I make 25% on all sales.  For the entire month of July, I am giving my entire 25% commission to the following two organizations:
1. The Yarnell Community Presbyterian Church has set up a special account to accept donations to help Yarnell and Peeples Valley residents as they return to their homes. Checks can be made out to Yarnell and Peeples Valley Recovery Fund at National Bank of Arizona or people can move their donations electronically. The routing number is 122105320 and the account number is 7600002730.

2. The United Phoenix Fire Fighters Association, together with Prescott Fire Fighters Charities, has established a 501©3 relief fund at any Chase bank. Ask for the United Phoenix Fire Fighters Association Account set up to benefit firefighters' families. Visit for complete information. Donors may donate to this account using PayPal or mail their donations to UPFFA, 61 E. Columbus, Phoenix, AZ, 85012. All of the tax-deductible contributions will go to the firefighters families. The site states donations may also be made through the 100 Club or the Wildland Firefighter Foundation.

I am dividing the money equally between both organizations because I want to help not only the families of the fallen heroes but the families who have lost their homes and businesses as well. To find out more ways to help visit the article at the Prescott Courier

I do not make any money from this, and do not benefit from these sales in any way.  All of my commission goes right two these accounts.

If you purchase you not only get great home fragrance items, but also help out a very worthy cause.

As an added bonus, because this cause is so important to me - anyone that makes a purchase in the month of July will be entered into a drawing to win a Small Heritage Candle in the scent of your choice (over 40 scents to choose from) and a $10 Amazon e-gift card.  If you order, please send me an email waitingonsundaytodrown @ gmail dot com to let me know you're name and that you ordered.  I will choose a winner August 1st, and announce here on my blog. 

Here is a sampling of what Gold Canyon Candle's has to offer:


 This is just one of the many combo deals Gold Canyon Candles is offering right now.  Bella candle and a 4 pack of votives.

  Heritage Candle, wick trimmer, and wick dipper. 

  These spa products feel and smell amazing.  The hand cream is one of my mom's absolute favorites.


  These Road Trip Souvenirs candles smell amazing.  Choose from Niagra Falls (blue) Catalina Island (red) or Sedona (tan).  They all smell great, but Sedona is AMAZING! 

These spur votive holders are cowgirl cute.

  Starburst candle holder that can also be hung on the wall, as a decoration

  Isn't this a pretty idea?  Heritage candles also come in unscented, for those that cannot have fragrance.

  Gold Canyon Candles donates 100% of all profits from all Candles for Kids Candles to the Prayer Child Foundation. 

Gold Canyon Candles donates a portion of all Support our Troops Candles to Operation Homefront.


Gold Canyon isn't just about candles - we also sell green cleaning products (they just so happen to also smell amazing!)
