We are SO thrilled to launch this new brand of candles!!
Chad and Sabastian Garsnett aren't new to candle making. The husband duo has been making candles for quite some time and operate Garsnett Beacon Candle Co. (www.garsnettbeacon.com) in Holland, MI. Initially an e-commerce store, they soon after opened their brick and mortar location that includes the production space for all of the candle lines as well as a pour-your-own experience.
At the heart of their mission is supporting those who's voices aren't heard as loud as others. Through financial donations and giving, Garsnett Beacon Candle Co. supports a wide spectrum within the community in areas of mental health, persons of minority races, teachers and education, and the LGBTQ+ community.
Out Loud Candles is launching with a focus on the LGBTQ+ community with it's first line of candles but the vision is MUCH bigger, particularly with planned expansion into areas of mental health and minorities through strategic partnerships and assistance of experts in these respective fields.
A portion of all sales goes to support the LGBTQ+ community and equality efforts locally and nationally. Additionally, Out Loud Candles has is committing $1 from the sale of each candle to The Trevor Project, who's mission is to end suicide among lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ+) young people.
