“They don’t only smell good, they do good.” Maybe that’s not the best catch phrase, but it’s my favorite. And I use it all the time. When I see a customer looking at the Bridgewater Candles, I have to admit, I jump on the opportunity to share what this company is doing in the world. It excites me to know that a company like Bridgewater chooses to give back and be a light for so many in this dark world.
Okay, so what am I talking about?
The Light a Candle + Feed a Child Program was created when the people at Bridgewater Candle Co. recognized the steady growth of orphaned children world wide; however, what really created the urgency to help was seeing the numbers of deaths due to malnutrition and starvation. Bridgewater wanted to educated the public and raise awareness for this world wide orphan crisis. But most importantly, they wanted to help save lives. That’s when they partnered with the Rice Bowl Foundation. Through this foundation, with every candle purchased, a child is feed overseas.
How exactly does this work?
- Buy a candle from the Small & Large Jar Collection, Mingle Tin Collection, or Sweet Grace Collection.
- They provide 3 meals for every candle purchased.
We take so much for granted. As I sit here drinking my coffee and typing this, I think of how easy and accessible food is. But I have to remind myself to be grateful because for some it’s not that easy. That’s why I love sharing what this company is doing. I recognize the need and urgency and I want to help Bridgewater share and educate people on this worldwide crisis. Since this program started millions of children have been able to go to bed with full bellies and happy hearts.
Feel free to share with friends and family. ❤
