Lavonde's Light Launch

Lavondé's Light is a new home décor brand I created that is dedicated to the memory of my mom, Evangelist Lavonde Whitten.  My mother passed away on October 18, 2016 due to complications associated with cancer. She was an inspiration to each and every person she touched, so I knew I wanted to honor her memory in a manner that would do her spirit justice; thus, the Lavondé's Light brand was born. 

Because my mother was truly a light to all she encountered, our signature product will be scented soy candles so that everyone can possess some of my mother's joy, peace and light into their own home. And because my mother was a vegan (I was raised vegan and have been vegan since birth) all products will be made with cruelty-free vegan ingredients. Our candles will be soy and scented with a propriety blend of pure essential oils. Other offerings will include room sprays, decorative throw pillows, oil burners and diffusers (with the accompanying scents) as well as other items. Because this is currently a boutique brand, all products will be handmade in Charlotte, NC, my mother's hometown. 

As an evangelist, my mother dedicated her life to service and "Kingdom building." She never wanted anyone to do without and one of the causes closest to her heart was feeding children and entire families in need.  Because of her example, 20 percent of all annual profits will go towards providing families with healthy and nutritious meals--it's my way of fulfilling my mom's legacy and helping those who need it.  

Any money donated will go towards startup costs, including but not limited to research and testing, supplies, manufacturing/labor costs, and marketing/promotions. 

I'm asking you to invest in my vision. It's my way of honoring my mother...but it's also helping me to grieve.

Thank you,
Jameka S. Whitten
