Our Charibear Candle is a one of a kind Candle. Not only is Baloo absolutely adorable, but I have dedicated this special Bear to a very important cause.



Let me tell you a bit about a sweet young mother from Luxembourg called Lara Baptista.

Lara is a 27-year-old woman, mother of a son, and victim of a very rare disease called "Endometriosis / Angiodema". In fact the disease is so rare that not even doctors know how to help her. Since August 2019, Lara has been spending her days in the hospital, far from her son and her family. She suffers from inexplicable pain such as heavy bleeding (from the eyes, nose, ears, etc.), muscle pain, bruises all over the body, difficulty to walk, vomiting, intense swelling, etc. Her suffering and illness are so clearly visible to everyone, but by our health system this illness is not recognized. Lara clearly cannot work and even had to give up her & her brothers dream of a restaurant. However, Lara does not receive any help from the government and her illness is not recognized by the Luxembourg health insurance fund. In short: This young woman battling a very rare and painful disease ON HER OWN. None of her health costs are covered by the insurance and the Government has declared her "fit to work". Just imagine being in this position. The Government who we trust and pay millions in Tax, simply lets her down and leaves her on her own. I strongly believe there is power in unity and so I have decided to support Lara and donate through our ChariBear Baloo. Lara is turning 28 on June 10th and I hope we can make her smile on her special day. 

Stay strong Lara! We demand justice for you.

Permettez-moi de vous parler un peu d'une jeune mère du Luxembourg appelée Lara Baptista.

Lara est une femme de 27 ans, mère d'un fils, et victime d'une maladie très rare appelée «endométriose / angiodème». En fait, la maladie est si rare que même les médecins ne savent pas comment l'aider. Depuis août 2019, Lara passe ses journées à l'hôpital, loin de son fils et de sa famille. Elle souffre de douleurs inexplicables telles que des saignements abondants (des yeux, du nez, des oreilles, etc.), des douleurs musculaires, des hematômes sur tout le corps, des difficultés à marcher, des vomissements, etc. Ses souffrances et sa maladie sont si clairement visibles à tout le monde, mais par notre système de santé, cette maladie n'est pas reconnue. Lara ne peut clairement pas travailler et a même dû fermer son restaurant. Cependant, Lara ne reçoit aucune aide du gouvernement et sa maladie n'est pas reconnue par la caisse maladie luxembourgeoise. En resumé: cette jeune femme doit lutter contre une maladie très rare et douloureuse TOUTE SEULE. Aucun de ses frais de santé sont prise en charge par l'assurance et le gouvernement l'a déclarée «apte au travail». Imaginez simplement être dans cette position. Le gouvernement en qui nous avons confiance et payons des millions d'impôts, la laisse simplement tomber et la laisse seule. Je crois fermement qu'il y a de la force dans l'unité et j'ai donc décidé de soutenir Lara et de faire un don via notre ChariBear Baloo. Lara aura 28 ans le 10 juin et j'espère que nous pourrons la faire sourire lors de sa journée spéciale.

Reste forte Lara! Tu n'es pas seule!

    Our candles are designed for decorative purposes.

    If you wish to light them, please ensure your candle is placed on an even surface with a heatproof coaster or candle plate, to catch any wax droplets or spillage.

    Do not leave unattended. 

    Do not burn for longer than 2hrs at a time.

    Keep away from drafts, children & pets. 

    The candles are specifically formulated & lightly scented, to promote a cold scent throw, meaning the scent is present when unlit and more suitable for home decor and ornamental purposes.

    All candles are hand poured using a natural soy wax, with this you may see changes in finish, small imperfections, air bubbles or frosting on your candle. Please note that this is common and usual with all natural soy waxes. To minimise the appearance of frosting, use a warm cloth, or your finger and gently rub the area to smooth out the frosting.
