4,000 Candles Campaign for Mother’s Day – Join Us!

April 17, 2011

You may have heard: Our team has a goal of selling 4,000 candles by Mother’s Day (May 8th). Why 4,000? Why sell them by Mother’s Day?

Every 10 candles we sell = 1 day’s living wage income for a woman in Iraq. So by selling 4,000 candles by Mother’s Day, we’ll be able to provide women with 400 days living wage income.

Prosperity Candle's Mother's Day 4,000 candles campaign - to change women's lives by giving meaningful gifts that give back. Shop now!

We want to sell them by Mother’s Day so we can grow our work and continue to change women’s lives around the world. We have big dreams for the work that we’re doing, but we need to grow our support base and sell more candles for it to happen. Plus, they make perfect Mother-to-Mother gifts. What better way to honor all that your Mom has given you?

THAT’S WHY WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR HELP.

Here’s what you can do to join the cause:

  • Help us reach a broader audience by supporting our 4,000 Candles Campaign (start by buying a candle for the Mothers in your life) and spread the word! Tell your friends and ask them to tell their friends.
  • Join our4,000 Candles  Facebook event and spread the word there. And, when your Mom opens her Prosperity Candle gift on Mother’s Day, capture the moment and upload the photo to our event page for the chance to win free candles!
  • Change your profile picture to the one we use – to share the 4,000 Candles Campaign with your friends.
  • If you use Twitter, tweet about our campaign using the #4000Candles hashtag.
