Support Refugees on Giving Tuesday

Support Refugees and Refugee Made Gifts on Giving Tuesday

It's Giving Tuesday! We're donating 100% of our net proceeds to the International Rescue Committee. Here's why.

At this moment, there are nearly 26 million refugees in the world, and many millions more who are displaced from their homes. Over half are children. There is a reason human rights organizations, celebrities, and activists are joining together to raise their voices. 

Refugees are people like you and me with dreams and goals... but who were forced to flee their homes to escape the violence of persecution, war or natural disaster. Like the resettled Burmese and Congolese women artisans in our studio, they typically spend many years surviving in makeshift refugee camps.

At Prosperity Candle, our mission is to support women artisans in and from regions of conflict who are rebuilding their lives. We started by helping war widows in Iraq and today focus on women resettled in the U.S. after living many years as a refugee. Behind every candle we pour is a story about a brighter future.

The IRC's Impact

We are proud to support the IRC’s work on Giving Tuesday and the many millions of lives they impact. International Rescue Committee  is an incredible organization delivering aid and paving long-term recovery for refugees and displaced people worldwide. Working in more than 40 countries and 26 U.S. cities, they provide individuals and families in places of crisis with shelter, food, healthcare and education opportunities. 

In 2018 alone, they supported:

The International Rescue Committee supports refugees and displaced families worldwide.

 

A Vision for the Future

America’s legacy is one that welcomes immigrants and refugees. Welcoming refugee families lies at the foundation of our values. We are a nation built by immigrants and refugees from all over the world, many of whom then become leaders in business, science, the arts and more. They strengthen our economy and communities, and embody the ideals of freedom.

With every Prosperity Candle gift purchased, you are voting for a world where women refugees and artisans have equal opportunity to thrive. On Giving Tuesday, we are donating 100% of net proceeds site-wide to the International Rescue Committee to make an even bigger impact.

"Welcoming refugees is what this country does best.
It's the Statue of Liberty in action."
