The Crescendo Group by Amy

Amy created The Crescendo Group to work with female survivors of armed conflicts and gender-based violence (GBV) to help them gain financial independence by helping them develop a marketplace for their handmade items.

They partner with local NGOs to provide support with shipping logistics, promotions and sales. Empowering these women helps to build up not only their lives, but also attracts more investment into their communities, creating more opportunities and increasing quality of life.

They have 3 partner NGOs in Kosovo and 3 in Washington D.C.. They plan to expand to Albania, Bangladesh, Turkey and Jordan in the near future.

Trista has always had the impulse to collect nature’s little beauties: a sprig of mint from a bush outside the Salem Witch House, a dried rose from a dear friend’s wedding, an acorn from her ancestral land.

Inspired by her college dissertation on witchcraft, folklore and the power of spectral evidence in contemporary poetry, she create Marvel + Moon, a candle company that combines the joy of collecting small momentos and her love of the flame.

The 100% soy candles are hand poured in small batches with a variety of organic herbs, a cotton wick, and an ethically sourced gemstone that you can save once the candle has burnt out.
