Opinion: Daughter of fire victim holding fundraiser for Waddington Fire Department
To the Editor:
I am the owner of Shelly Lynn's Creations. I sell homemade soy wax melts, wax brittle, and candles. I made my business in memory of my mother Shelly Lynn French who we lost tragically November 12, 2016 in a tragic house fire that occurred on the McKnight Road in Chase Mills.I created my business to keep her memory alive and to recreate all the things we lost in that fire.
My mother had a huge heart and was an amazing woman that always went over and beyond for people and gave every thing she could to people in need. So with my business I am also doing good deeds.
My first project is a donation project for the Volunteer Fire Department in Waddington as a "thank you" for helping my family and I out that night when we desperately needed it. I will be presenting them with a check and a nice personal letter.
In order to maximize my outcome with my donation project I am running this through the months of spring with the launch of my spring line scents.
I will be taking a certain percentage of all sales throughout this month and contributing that way. I also allow people the option to leave a donation (tip) on bill to help donate that way as well. I have reached out some local business in Waddington asking if I can leave a donation jar as well in order to get the community involved.
I am hopeful for the a good outcome of this project.
