Why We’re Excited About Our Partnership with Oxfam America

October 05, 2012

Oxfam America Last Change candle New in the Prosperity Candle store: our Oxfam America Lasting Change candle. Why are we so enthusiastic about our partnership with Oxfam America? Here are three simple reasons (we could go on!).

1. Oxfam isn’t “your ordinary charitable organization.”  They believe that you can’t fight poverty, hunger, and injustice with money alone.  “It’s as basic as helping people help themselves.”  This philosophy aligns perfectly with our own — after all, when you invest in a woman, change happens.

2. Oxfam has provided hundreds of millions of dollars in grants and technical assistance, in close to one hundred countries!  That’s an inspiring organizational footprint.

3. Above all, Oxfam stresses the importance of respect for human rights. They are passionate and transparent about their rights-based approach.  Learn more about their commitment on OxfamAmerica.org

Ten percent of each purchase of the Oxfam America Lasting Change candle will go to fund their efforts.  And of course, each purchase impacts the lives of the Burmese refugee women who created them — that’s our mission, and we’re thrilled to be able to help Oxfam with theirs at the same time!
