A few months ago, my cousin Cami's good friend, Deby Sebastian, gave Cami a late Christmas gift - a candle named Bella. Deby owns a candle company (Blessings Candles) yet knew nothing about Bella until she gave Cami this candle. From this coincidence, another fundraising idea started coming together.
Deby has generously offered a very simple but profitable fundraiser to the ACD Association. Deby's candle company, Blessings Candles, will make a donation to the ACD Restricted Research Fund at NORD for every "Bella" or other candle bought by ACDA members, their family and friends between now and the end of December.
She will donate $9.00 for every 22 oz. candle and $4.00 for every 11 oz. candle bought by ACDA members, their friends and family. There are many scents to choose from in addition to the "Bella" candle.

If you need to make payment using another method, contact Deby at email@example.com. Be sure to mention that you are an ACDA member.
When you give the candle as a gift, you might consider adding a note similar to the one below to add a personal touch:
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this candle will be donated by Blessings Candles to the National Organization for Rare Diseases (NORD) for research on Alveolar Capillary Dysplasia (ACD). This is being done in memory of Bella, and the other babies that have lost their lives to ACD.
Thank you Deby for offering to do this wonderful fundraiser for ACD research! Such a wonderful blessing.
