The AlcoholWick

Hi, I’m McKenzie! I am a current nursing student who has decided to start a candle making business to fund help fund my schooling. My mission for this fundraisers is to obtain the money to start my candle making business. As this is my first business it would really help to be able to get a head start on purchasing the materials to start the candles. The name I came up with- Alcoholwick- is a play on the word Alcoholic. Being a college student, I have had plenty of encounters where alcohol is served at functions. I also have had my fair share of party clean ups and dealing with hungover people.  I thought it would be a fun idea to turn those drinks and headaches into something fun that doesn’t have to be a dangerous substance. Each candle has its own name based on the alcoholic beverage that it’s supposed to mimic. This gives non drinkers, and drinkers, the ability to have a little fun with alcohol without the worry of a hangover. Because I do not condone alcoholism and I do understand that it is a serious issue for many people, each candle also has lists (names, numbers, websites) for different AA groups as well as just general help and references. Hopefully my brand can bring a little fun and enjoyment to everyone!
