World Refugee Day

June 20, 2017

June 20 marks World Refugee Day on the calendar. If you’re like us, it breaks your heart to see the plight of refugees and other immigrants being politicized when lives are at stake. Instead of looking away, we want to call your attention to one of our favorite small businesses doing something good for the world’s refugees.

Prosperity Candle employs women refugees who have resettled in the United States and are building a brighter future for themselves and their families. Every candle you purchase helps to provide a living wage for women starting their lives anew. In becoming skilled candlemakers, these artisans are traveling a path from refugee to entrepreneur. 

You can support them in their journey from hopelessness to opportunity by the simple act of purchasing a candle today.
