Introducing the Spirit of Resilience Candle – for Haiti

January 10, 2011

As you probably know, our team began working with Haitian artisans this winter to source beautifully designed, handmade recycled metal candle accessories to accompany our Prosperity Pillar Candles from Iraq. The accessories have been a huge hit – within a few weeks we had sold out of all of them! We plan to expand our work helping women create their own candle enterprises in Haiti in the coming years, but the incredible response to the Haitian products inspired us to broaden our work there now.

Recognizing that globally people are struggling with hardships – of all sorts – we wanted to create a product that celebrates the resilience in ALL of us. We believe that the Spirit of Resilience candle embodies the spirit and resilience of women throughout the world. Each candle and candle stand reflects the hopes of women in Iraq & Haiti and spread their dreams worldwide. When we support these women in pursuing their dreams, we are investing in the dreams of all women worldwide and celebrating the resilience that we all have.

To honor the upcoming anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti, we have decided to donate 10% of each Spirit of Resilience Candle to Partners In Health‘s work in Haiti throughout 2011. Partners In Health is a remarkable public health organization that has worked in Haiti since 1985. They were one of the first organizations to provide relief after the earthquake and continue to play a critical role in Haiti.

We hope that you will honor the resilience that we all have and support Haiti this January by purchasing a Spirit of Resilience Candle.
