Driveway At Dawn Candle
Inspired by a customer request and the grass roots driveway at dawn movement Talking Stones has been asked to created a limited edition ANZAC DAY 2020 Driveway at Dawn Eternal Candle.
In case you haven’t heard, with the cancellation of formal ANZAC Day commemoration services there is a grassroots campaign for everyday Australians to mark the occasion by standing at the end of their driveways at 5:55 am with a candle. The movement was started by Justin Wilbur who co-founded the Australians & Kiwis for ANZACs Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/anzacday2020/.
At dawn across our nation, people will be standing at their gates, on balconies or verandas, holding a candle to our fallen heroes. Many radio networks will live stream the National Dawn Service so people can listen on their phones. We won’t let the current crisis stop us from honouring our Diggers.
A customer of ours asked us to create something memorable, which is what we’ve done, and we’re delighted to share it with the rest of the country. Carved from a single piece of Australian sandstone, each candle features a Soldier silhouette head bowed in respect and the year “2020”. Supplied with a family friendly LED battery operated realistic flickering tea light.
Each sale will see a donation of $20 going to “SOLDIER ON” - a charity which works with veterans to ensure they can have a successful future. Leading up to ANZAC Day all candles will be shipped Express Post free of charge.
