Fundraising


Ashley Ann distributors is a wholesaler of candles located in Dartmouth, NS. We are currently looking to assist community groups, sports teams and charities in raising funds. Since 2012 we helped raise over $250, 000 for various community groups.

Our fundraising program offers 12 regular scents mason jar candles with a handle, 2 season scents and 3 pack Air Fresheners. The mason jar candles are a soy blend candle that feature great colour, true to life scents and a clean burn. Our program allows the fundraising group to retain 40% or more of funds collected.

To put this into perspective, a similar fundraising program using chocolate bars would require you to sell 100 chocolate bars to raise $100. With our program, selling candles, you would only have to sell 25 candles to raise this same amount.

Candles are available for pick up in Dartmouth however special arrangements can be made for other locations.

To learn more about this program please email michael@aadistributors.ca or call (902) 468-9076 or toll free 1-855-468-9076.
