Moo Kho is one of our star candle makers. She is an incredible woman with a quiet strength and inspirational story. Because of her industriousness, attention to detail and ability to lead others, she has been promoted to a management role with our refugee initiative. In this role she is responsible for many of the stunning candles that we are selling this holiday season.
Here is a sweet memory that she has of her grandmother’s garden. A peaceful memory of the life she had before the conflict her family experienced in Burma.
Now, hand in hand with Prosperity Candle, she is rebuilding her life here in the United States. One candle at a time.
Sai Aye joined Prosperity Candle as a candle-maker in 2015, after relocating to the U.S. from a refugee camp along the Burmese-Thai border. Over the years we've had the pleasure of getting to know Sai as a skillful candle-maker and joyful person. She's happily offered to share a glimpse into her life!
Monday, July 30th is World Day Against Trafficking in Persons - a cause that is dear to our hearts. One way you can help victims of human trafficking is by purchasing products made by survivors. We love these handmade products because they celebrate each artisan's skills and creativity.
We are always on a quest to improve quality and reduce our carbon footprint for the well-being of the environment, our customers, and the women artisans pouring each candle. Here's a look at our ingredients and environmental impact.
