joinFITE’s Meaningful Gifts that Change Lives Gift Guide
December 03, 2011
Thank you to our friends at joinFITE for their Meaningful Gifts that Change Lives gift guide. They’ve compiled a thoughtful collection of organizations with meaningful gifts that give back in many ways this holiday. Each one of the gifts they feature support charitable causes or empower people through their creation. We’re proud to stand next to products from Global Goods Partners, Arzu’s Peace Cord and Dermalogica.
Thank you to joinFITE (a sister organization to Kiva that is supported by celebrities like Demi Moore, Emma Watson, Diane Keaton, Maria Bello and Geena Davis) for your amazing work to empower women entrepreneurs through microfinance – and, of course, for creating this gift guide!
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.
