Supporting the Polar Bear Fund
Last week we announced our latest candle in collaboration with Kal Barteski, Fresh Air & Polar Bears. If you haven't already seen it, the box is SOOO CAYUTE and it's a sneak peek of Kal's latest work and we're dying over it.
After a chance visit to Churchill (we neeeed to go, btw), Barteski fell in love with the polar bear world - the bears, the people, and turned her focus to polar bears. Currently with over 100 paintings in her collection of polar bears - her work is often described as "powerful and emotional", and "a voice for bears".
Not only are we so proud to be working with an incredible local celeb, but we're excited to be giving a portion of the sales to the Polar Bear Fund.
The Polar Bear Fund is hosted by the Winnipeg Foundation and supports small meaningful projects that honour polar bears on an annual basis. What makes them different is instead of collecting their funds for a large organization, the PBF is made to enhance small and innovative ideas. It's located in Manitoba (yay local!) and they believe their responsibility is to be leaders in polar bear understanding, management, research, and ultimately the conservation of species. We LOVE that.
Soooo, we think it's a pretty great cause.
We love polar bears. You love polar bears. We all loooveee polar bears! Go pick up Fresh Air & Polar Bears today, in store or order online!
