Amnesty International is a global movement of people fighting injustice and promoting human rights. With more than 3 million supporters, activists and volunteers in more than 150 countries, and complete independence from government, corporate or ideological interests, Amnesty International is currently the world’s largest grassroots human rights organization. Through our activism and campaign efforts, tens of thousands of prisoners of conscience have been released from unjust detention. You can learn more about our other actions and movements at http://www.amnestyusa.org/. Prosperity Candle and Amnesty International have partnered to create a new line of Amnesty candles made by Burmese women refugees to embody their mission to advocate for human rights.
FEED began in 2006 when model and activist Lauren Bush Lauren designed a bag to benefit the United Nations World Food Programme’s (WFP) School Feeding program. Lauren first created the FEED 1 bag, a reversible burlap and organic cotton bag reminiscent of the bags of food distributed by WFP, to help raise funds and awareness around these school feeding operations. In 2007, FEED Projects LLC was founded by Lauren Bush Lauren and Ellen Gustafson to produce and sell these bags.
To date, FEED has been able to raise enough money through the sale of products to provide over 60 million school meals to children around the world through WFP. We are proud to have collaborated with FEED on their very first candles created by Prosperity Candle.
