As many fans are aware, Holt Renfrew, Sir Elton, David Furnish and NEST Fragrances have partnered to create a unique limited edition candle to benefit the life-saving work of the Elton John AIDS Foundation. The three-wick scented candles, created exclusively for Holt Renfrew, are available in two scents - floral and citrus-based.
A portion of proceeds from sales of the $50 candles will support Elton's charity, with a goal of raising $100,000 for the life-saving work of the foundation, which is observing its 20th anniversary this year.
David and I were thrilled when Holt Renfrew invited the Elton John AIDS Foundation to participate in their growing charitable initiative program, which connects customers to charities through fashion and builds awareness for great causes, said the pop legend.
Partnerships like this really do make a difference and help bring important messages like ours to the general public, added Furnish. The $50 price point is great, because it allows people to make a tangible difference for a reasonable cost. We are very proud of the end result.
The candles are available for purchase now at Holt Renfrew's Web site- and in their stores across Canada beginning September 8, the same date Elton and David are to appear at the Toronto branch (Bloor Street) in person.
Meanwhile, there's an exciting contest open to those living in Canada: They can win one of 3 candles signed by Elton and his partner. The event ends on September 10 at 11:59 a.m. EST.
