We received the results of Evan's Trisomy 13 test on March 13th. That happens to be Trisomy 13 awareness day. March is actually Trisomy awareness month, but they recognize that day in particular. I just thought it was significant that he was diagnosed on Trisomy awareness day and we would be researching and becoming very familar with Trisomy 13 very quickly. The website has been a huge resource for information and today I found where scentsy was promoting Trisomy awareness so I thought I would pass on the info.

Now through March 24th, 20% to 25% of all product sold from Scentsy Wickless Candles (through the Trisomy Awareness event link) will go directly towards two organizations: Ironman for Kids- Trikes for Trisomy, and Hope for Trisomy 13 and 18.
Help create awareness about Trisomy 13 and 18 and help to support those families that have a child with Trisomy 13 or 18. Many families who have a child newly diagnosed with Trisomy 13 or 18 are told that their child’s condition is “not compatible with life”. For many of these families, this is the first that they have heard about Trisomy 13 or 18 and are not sure where to turn for support or information. Every woman is offered testing prenatally for these 2 conditions but sadly, most of our communities know nothing about it.

Both of these organizations are working hard to raise Trisomy awareness and to provide research and support in connection with Trisomy 13 and 18. Now is a great time to help these organizations out. While ordering, enter the name of a Trisomy child in the notes section and the funds raised from that order will be given in that Child's name! In addition to the funds raised, anyone who orders Scentsy as part of the fundraiser will receive a Trisomy Awareness Packet to continue the growth of awareness about Trisomy.
Orders from the full catalog selection are ONLY available online at
