“I'm going to make a point of spreading joy, hope and love where we go. I want that as my legacy, I want my loved ones to have that legacy too. I want to share our journey with you, I hope you'll be there.” - Marika Meeks
This special edition candle honors Marika Meeks of Incredibull Stella. I will donate 20% of proceeds from these to her 501c3 charitable foundation which covers things like rescuing and rehoming dogs, providing supplies to families and dogs in need, and underwriting spay/neuter initiatives (or, if those efforts are on pause, may go towards her family's outstanding medical bills).
Marika was a beacon of hope, joy and love for animals + humans in need. Whenever she was speaking, she chose to use her voice to advocate for misunderstood dogs (bully breeds in particular) and to promote adoption. She used her voice to inspire others. She and her pitbull Stella rescued many dogs in her own home, getting them healthy and happy before finding them forever homes. She built relationships and helped dogs one at a time, and her efforts had a ripple effect that has impacted many, many lives.
Marika left this world much too soon after battling cancer, and I want her memory + efforts to live on. You can help Marika and Stella's mission continue by enjoying this tribute candle.
Marika ordered dozens of candles just like this for gifts for her friends and loved ones, and we spoke about doing a donation-based candle for her foundation, so I am thrilled to do this on her behalf. The scent is inspired by the Brave candle that she loved, with an added weathered teakwood and coconut vibe for the summer.
