“This Little Light of Mine”

The unpacking goes on and on and on...

A new line that we will be carrying that just arrived is Bridgewater Candles.  Bridgewater is a candle company out of Spartanburg, SC. Not only does this company make a great product to sale but they also make a product that gives back.  For every jar candle sold, Bridgewater will donate money to feed one orphaned child for one day. 

We also have a special edition candle that is Frankie’s Candle.  Through the purchase of this candle, you will be feeding one orphaned child for one week!

Meet Frankie.
In Port-au-Prince, Haiti, an expectant mother knew she was not likely to survive long after childbirth.  She prepared a bag for her child with his belongings and a bottle of her used perfume.  She wanted her young son, Frankie, to remember how she smelled. 

A couple from Upstate South Carolina was in the process of adopting Frankie when the 2010 earthquake hit Haiti.  All communication was lost and the couple was franticly trying to get in contact with Frankie.  Diane Sawyer was in Haiti reporting on the devastation.  Diane had no idea that when she picked a child out of a crowd, to put on camera, that it would be Frankie.  Frankie was identified and their paperwork was quickly redone and he was adopted!

"You have searched me, Lord, and you know me.  You know when I sit and when I rise, you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down, you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you Lord know it completely.  You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me." Psalm 139:1-5 
 Today, Frankie is a blessing to a loving family in the United States.  He has two sisters and parents who long to make a difference for orphaned children like Frankie.  Frankie’s snapshot of life has been forever changed. 

Bridgewater’s Special Edition Candle is inspired by Frankie’s birth mother’s perfume, featuring the warmth of vanilla, creamy sandalwood and golden amber, uplifted with bergamot, vibrant rose, ylang and carnation.

Through the purchase of this candle, you will be feeding one orphaned child for one week.
