We work with women who are from distressed parts of the world who have survived conflict or natural disaster. They are now getting their feet on their ground and rebuilding their lives. The women we work with come from places Burma, Haiti, Rwanda, Iraq and Afghanistan. These women make our beautiful candles and other gifts.
Each candle we sell helps give them more security and income. The money they earn through Prosperity Candle helps them invest in education, health care and food for their children. No matter which country the women come from, they have a universal dream of giving their children a better future.
Truly a gift that gives back, to you, to the women who make them, and to the future of our world.
Every one of our candles includes the name of the woman who made it so you can connect directly with her on our website. Under our “Connect” page you can read her bio, see her picture and send her a message directly. We’re talking about a global connection here. And the knowledge that you are playing a part in helping a woman rebuild her life!
We could focus only on candles and stop there. But why do that when there are so many good causes in the world to team up with? We collaborate with fair trade and socially conscious organizations like Equal Exchange, Numi Tea, Beeline, Divine Chocolate, SERRV International and Arghand to bring you chocolate, coffee, tea, baskets and beauty products. These products are paired with our candles for gifts that are unique and give back two, three or more times!
Why stop with a gift that give back only once, when it can give back to several organizations, making a difference for people all around the world?
We have partnered with respected organizations like Women for Women International, World Pulse, Partners In Health and the National Peace Corps Association to offer charitable gifts to support their causes. We believe deeply in their work and want to support it, so have created unique gift sets that include messaging about their mission or products from the countries where they work.
Shopping for a cause has never looked better!
We test our products and those of our partners like crazy. Candles get packed up in boxes and rattled to ensure that they will ensure shipping. We do temperature and burn tests to make sure that they will be long-lasting and clean burning. We invest in all-cotton wicks and clean-burning wax.
We know a lot of people think that buying a gift that does good is not going to result in a high quality gift. We would like to prove that belief wrong!
Our candles are long-lasting and burn beautifully.
Our gifts are all handmade and come from the far reaches of the globe. We want our products to reflect this, so we are always thinking outside the box about what we can do. What can we pour a candle into? An old coffee can? A repurposed glass soda bottle? A hand-thrown ceramic bowl? A Moroccan glass with bold patterns? You bet!
Stay with us. We’ll keep surprising and delighting you!
