Amnesty International has teamed up with artist Coarse to design a series of new candles that are about as badass as a candle can be. Each Freedom Candle is designed to represent a different injustice, such as women being barred from getting an education and gun violence, and as they burn, the wax slowly melts to reveal a hopeful outcome. See them in action in the video above, and look for them on eBay starting April 19th when 30 of them will be auctioned off, with proceeds going to amnesty international.
