Light a Candle of Thanks

November 21, 2015

This time of year, it’s good to reflect on what we’re thankful for. For most people, first thoughts turn to food on the table and roofs over our heads. Which is why, particularly now, our attention focuses on the plight of millions of refugees worldwide. People experiencing this growing crisis need our help, and one of the first steps you can take is to light a candle in the darkness. Prosperity candles are made by former refugee women resettled in the United States. You can help them make a living by purchasing a candle today.

On Prosperity Candle’s website, you can even send a note of encouragement to the woman who made your candle. It’s a powerful exchange to incorporate into your Thanksgiving tradition. Give thanks for your blessings and consider what you can do in your community to help those in need.

Read about one candle artisan’s journey from hopelessness to opportunity, from refugee to entrepreneur. We’re happy to share Moo Kho’s inspirational story, knowing that you played a part in helping her build a brighter future for herself and her family.
