HANDMADE IN THE UNITED STATES

This candle features recording artist and activist MILCK's handwritten “I Belong” song lyrics. “I Belong” declares that each of us not only inherently belongs in the United States of America, but also to one another. MILCK wrote “I Belong” as a song for healing and due to her desire for everyone to feel like they belong, no matter their background.

For each candle purchased, 50% of the purchase price will be donated to the Asian Women’s Shelter, a beneficiary organization of the Somebody’s Beloved Fund.

The Asian Women's Shelter is an organization dedicated to eradicating domestic violence by promoting the social, economic, and political self-determination of women. It helps to address the needs of women, children, and transgender survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking, with a focus on supporting immigrant, refugee, and U.S.-born Asian women and their children.

Our candles are made in small batches by women who resettled as refugees in the United States. They earn living wages and develop their skill sets while creating a brighter future for themselves and their families.

Candle making is a business a woman can start and expand in the safety of her own home with local materials, a critical element at times of unrest.

Lastly, they will package the candle, including their signed names on the bottom of the candles they create.
