Every prosperity candle we sell directly impacts a woman from a region of conflict or natural disaster who is rebuilding her life, so each purchase makes a big difference. Lately, we’ve been building up our gift program to suit a new niche: socially conscious business and donor gifts. Whether for donor appreciation, employee gifts, board member or client thank-yous, Prosperity Candles communicate the values of organizations and businesses in a uniquely moving way.
Fiona Wilson, former Assistant Professor at the Entrepreneurship Program at Simmons College and future professor at the Whittemore School of Business & Economics at the University of New Hampshire has purchased candles several times as both personal and professional gifts. We feel that her experience speaks volumes of the impact and relevance of giving Prosperity Candles in both settings:
“I have used Prosperity Candles for several business gifts in the last 12 months – for the December Holidays, as thank you gifts, and also as meeting gifts – and have been so thrilled with the experience. The candles are gorgeous. Extremely high quality, beautifully and tastefully packaged, and the customer service has been exceptional – very personalized and responsive. The women to whom I have given these gifts are really moved by the story, making these much more special and meaningful than the average business gift. I love the fact that I am part of the movement to help address real social needs, not through philanthropy but through my every day purchases, and I buy from Prosperity Candle because my purchase helps create a glow in my heart, in that of the people I give to, and, I hope, in the hearts of the women who made them.
On behalf of the Entrepreneurship Program at Simmons College, I often give guest speakers and coaches a token of our appreciation for their volunteerism. What a pleasure it is to do so with a Prosperity Candle knowing that our purchase benefits a great cause adding something special to the gift – and to our gift giving.”
If you are interested in giving a gift that gives back in your business setting, consider a Prosperity Candle. We recently added a soy-blend tin candle (below) that can be customized with your company’s logo. These candles are hand-poured by refugees originally from Burma and Bhutan who are now living in Western Mass. Each candle features the name of the woman who made it, and you can connect with her on our website. To see our full catalog, click here and for more information contact email@example.com.

In the spirit of Women’s History Month, our thoughts are drawn to the many women who contribute to society in a myriad of ways while expecting nothing in return. They are hidden from view. Yet these women are transforming communities and making a positive difference in the world. They are unsung heroines.
March is about celebrating women… something we’re pretty excited about. There is so much to appreciate, so many barriers yet to topple, and so many amazing women to recognize for their accomplishments.
Ah, Valentine’s Day. Every year we look forward to it, but here’s the thing. Ever since Eve Ensler started One Billion Rising as part of her V-Day movement to end violence against women and girls, we’ve felt conflicted about this holiday.
