Sharing the Light with a Meaningful Mother to Mother Gift this Mother’s Day

March 14, 2011

Last year we launched our very first sales of Prosperity Candles for Mother’s Day. Our community responded with such enthusiasm that we found ourselves suddenly sending candles to all corners of the United States. Mothers around the country were moved by the significance of these gifts that give back  to women around the world.

We received some beautiful photos and testimonials, so we wanted to share those with you as we approach Mother’s Day again this year. We are building a beautiful gift collection for Mother’s Day this year and hope many of you will consider giving the mothers in your life a gift that empowers women to invest in their families.

“(My Mom) couldn’t be happier with her gift.  She loves the candle’s deep hue, and the way it glows with a bright, clear flame.  More than that, I think, she feels a connection with the story behind the candle.  Although my mom and I will most likely never meet the woman who made my mother’s candle, we remain deeply indebted to her for bringing such joy through such a simple, yet powerful, gift.”

“I bought a Prosperity Candle for my mom for Mother’s Day last year and she absolutely loved it. Not only is it beautiful, but she loved what it represents. Coming from her daughter, the candle was even more meaningful, as it showed that she had passed her values on to me. She lights the candle on the dining room table whenever she has guests and tells them the story behind it, spreading word about the good work that Prosperity Candle is doing!”
