Candle - Together For Her

Made in the United States
by refugee women

$ 36.00

Together for Her is a call-to-action to stand in solidarity with women and girls around the world by deploying funds and supporting the global response against domestic violence during the time of COVID-19.

The United Nations Population Fund reports that six months of lockdowns could result in an additional 31 million cases of gender-based violence. Women and children in vulnerable communities are among the most at risk of witnessing and potentially experiencing domestic violence. Now more than ever, it is essential that we join together in raising awareness and preventing abuses.

We have teamed up with the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, CARE, and the Entertainment Industry Foundation to amplify the critical need for resources and unified support. With every order of this candle, The Little Market co-founders, Lauren Conrad and Hannah Skvarla, will match the purchase price and donate to Together for Her.

Through the power of our collective voices, we are joining the movement of women standing #TogetherforHer.

Each purchase empowers women artisans at Prosperity Candle who have resettled as refugees in the United States.

About The Artisans

About The Artisans

Prosperity Candle

Prosperity Candle is a social enterprise based in the United States that invests in women entrepreneurs to help end poverty. Candles are the focus of this enterprise because candle making is a business a woman can start and expand in the safety of her own home with local materials, a critical element at times of unrest. This has been the goal of Prosperity Candle since the beginning: to enable women to escape poverty and conflict around the world through entrepreneurship. Every candle purchased helps provide a living wage for the women of Prosperity, who have recently resettled from refugee camps and are working to build a brighter future for themselves and their families in the United States.

Technique

The women of Prosperity Candle are entrepreneurs who have recently resettled from refugee camps here in the United States. Each candle is handmade in Massachusetts by a single artisan from start to finish.

The women hand-pour the wax in small batches; it is a clean-burning mixture of a coconut-soy wax blend, which is free of phthalates and infused with essential oils. They use a carefully crafted mixture of essential oils to create the perfect scent and finish the candle with a 100 percent cotton wick. Every candle is created without dyes or enhancers. Finally, the artisan packages the candle and signs her name on the bottom.
