ECOYA partners with Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation

ECOYA is proud to be partnering with Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation (SCHF) to raise vital funds to help all sick kids, no matter where, no matter what.

In support of Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation Sydney Sick Kids Appeal (May 23 – June 30 2022), ECOYA has designed a Special Edition candle and fragrance, created exclusively and lovingly for SCHF, with all proceeds from sales going directly to the front line of children’s healthcare.

The ECOYA team collaborated with SCHF’S Art Program and young oncology patient, Chelsea, on this Special Edition Peach & Patchouli fragranced candle. At just seven years old, Chelsea was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. From her bed at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, Chelsea painted a water-coloured garden featuring flowers and butterflies which the ECOYA design team then incorporated onto the packaging.

The Sydney Sick Kids Appeal shines a light on kid’s health and raises vital funds for sick kids and families (like Chelsea), receiving treatment or care by the network of children’s hospitals and paediatric health services across New South Wales as well as making a positive difference in the lives of sick and injured children.

The ECOYA x SCHF Peach & Patchouli Special Edition candle is available exclusively at, and selected David Jones stores.
