Candles are the perfect way to make your home inviting and smelling delightfully. Finding the perfect scented candle is as tedious as finding the right perfume. But, when you find THE scent, it’s magic.
During the winter, the Pumpkin Chai candle by Bright Endeavors was exactly what I needed – a comforting scent during the cool Chicago days. Now that spring is officially here (YAY!), I’m loving their Lemon Tea candle that’s pleasantly invigorating.
But, Bright Endeavors is more than a candle maker. It’s a social enterprise that offers paid job training to young moms, so they can build the skills to land gainful employment after graduating from the program. Get this – during the 2016 fiscal year, 45 young moms were placed in permanent jobs at employers like Rivers Casino, Evanston Hospital, Loretto Hospital, Holiday Inn, and O’Hare Airport!
Who knew that helping out a new young mom is as easy as purchasing a candle and smells so good!
With a lot of heart,
P.S. – Thank you so much to the wonderful employees of Bright Endeavors for taking me on a tour of the facility and teaching me about the incredible organization.
