Besides providing you with amazing-smelling candles, we pour for two bigger reasons.
Our First Mission: Giving Moms A Choice
To provide a place where moms, that want to stay home and raise their kids, can earn money for their families.
They can do this in two ways:
- Take home a curated box to assemble.
- Join us for pour parties in our candle barn.
Why is this important to us?
Ryan and I grew up in homes where we had our moms with us. However, my mom didn't get that luxury in her first marriage with my older brothers.
She dreamed of being a stay-at-home mom and raising her babies. But her dreams came crashing down when her then-husband decided to abruptly leave the family.
She was forced to find work to survive, and she did it because she is an incredibly strong woman.
I heard that story when I was young, and to this day my chest still tightens and the lump in the back of my throat forms thinking about how unfair this was for her.
For any parent.
If a mom wants to be there for her kids, she should have that right. And there needs to be opportunities to make that an option.
That's why we want to help give moms a choice.
Our Second Mission: The Helping People Project
As part of our core business philosophy, we want to help others live better lives. Ryan and I have decided to dedicate 5% of every sale to help people in need and we want the people we help to be nominated by our customers.
This is a "pay it forward program" where you get to help real families that are struggling.
The HPP began just over a month ago and we already helped three families.
Because of your support, we were able to purchase several bikes for kids that otherwise wouldn't have for the summer months. And we were able to purchase gas and grocery gift cards and help with rent for another family.
How much we can help will only grow as we grow. Ryan has a big dream to one day be able to gift someone a car. And I know with his work ethic and your help, we will make that happen.
Thank you for taking the time to read our reasons for pouring. Make sure you follow us on social platforms to stay up to date on our progress.
