Hemp Wax Wick
Hemp Wax Wick
Made using organic hemp twine that's been coated in organic beeswax, Flora's Wax Wick can be used in place of matches and butane lighters. 100% All Natural, these wicks are made and packaged by local Medical Refugees who have moved to Colorado for access to Medical Marijuana.
Families with sick kids, individuals ready to give up because of unrelenting physical pain, hurt kids trying to escape their traumatic pasts - the number and scope is astonishing and the current infrastructure has little room for the influx of people in pain with no where else to go. They have left behind their homes, jobs, families and support systems. They have no resources, little money - but it's worth it because this traumatic move will give them access to the medicine they need.
Did you know it can take up to 3 years for a homeless Medical Refugee to find some sort of assisted housing? That's three years on the streets, living day to day, handful to handful, with endless queue lines, busses, beatings and bedbugs, all because they don't want opioids as a treatment for their pain and in the words of a friend "Moving and being homeless is better than taking that S&it and dying".
Once we get rolling and have funding and a space to work, the program will work very similar to one set up by the city of Denver: https://www.denverpost.com/2018/01/16/denver-day-works-program-homeless-jobs/
To support this program, we will be creating a non-profit around this idea. Stay tuned for more. If you are interested in funding, volunteering or helping move this idea forward, please call the shop and ask for Chris.
