Amnesty International Celebrates 50 Years with Prosperity Candle’s Vessels of Light

June 15, 2011

Amnesty International, a beacon for the promotion of human rights and dignity, has decided to feature  Prosperity Candles for their 50 th anniversary product collection, highlighting their “shine a light on human rights” campaign. We are incredibly honored and excited to share in the celebration of their efforts, and to provide gifts whose value resonates deeply with their mission. In addition to the co-branded Vessels of Light, Amnesty International is also featuring a Putumayo World Music CD. Both products will be sold on their website and will be featured at events in the coming weeks.

For more about the campaign, click here.

Each Vessel of Light is made by female Burmese refugees who are now living in Springfield MA, and working with Prosperity Candle in their nearby office. These women have experienced the same atrocities against which Amnesty International works so diligently, and we feel that these candles represent the intersection of our respective missions: to shed light on regions of conflict and defend human rights within them, and to empower their inhabitants to overcome and prosper. Every candle features both the Amnesty International and Prosperity Candle story and logo, as well as the name of the woman who made the candle.
