A Pre-Refugee Memory of Grandma’s Garden

December 11, 2011

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.
