Middle Davids Candles
Dear Lincoln Elementary Family:

We’re excited to announce our first major fundraiser of the year that will support many of our PTA school activities for the coming months. We are teaming up with Middle Davids Candles of Franklin, IN, again this year to bring a unique opportunity to raise funds and have a little fun at the same time.

Middle Davids manufactures high quality soy candles, and over the past four years has twice been voted Indianapolis’ best gift shop and twice runner up out of more than 80 nominees by voters at their largest local newspaper, local ABC-TV affiliate and Middle Davids specializes in helping school groups raise funds, and they provide custom-labeled candles and “sales kits” that allow students to use a set of ten tea-lights so people can experience the fragrances and “choose their favorite,” whether they purchase a candle or not. Students can even earn the right to keep their kit free based on hitting sales goals. (Just sell 12+ candles and keep the tea-light set free, in addition to earning more than $100 to support Lincoln PTA!) The best part is that our students sell 7 ounce soy candles for $12.00 each or 13 ounce soy candles for $20 each (over 15% less than comparable candles in the mall) and Lincoln PTA earns $9.50-$10.00/sale (48-50%, depending on our total sales together)!

In order to prepare for our kickoff in October, we need to hear from you as to how you would like to participate. Please complete the form (PDF link below) and return to the school as soon as possible to get started.

  • Candle Sales begin - Oct 10
  • Candle Sale End/Order Forms due - Oct 24
  • Candles Arrive - Week of Nov 3
