1) World Pulse gift sets from Prosperity Candle

Prosperity Candle Gift SetLet someone know they bring light into your life with handmade candle gifts from Prosperity Candle. Tea infusion, sandalwood, and lemongrass-sage scented candles are made with soy blend wax by Burmese women who have recently resettled in the US and are creating a brighter future for their families.

In the Beauty, Courage & Possibility Set, World Pulse travel tin candles come nestled in a beautiful jewelry bag, hand-embroidered in fine detail by resilient Afghan women living in refugee camps and striving to rebuild their lives. You can buy all three scents in the Travel Tin Set.

Each gift provides fair wages to an Afghan and Burmese woman, and 10% of your purchase goes directly to World Pulse. Order by December 19 for guaranteed delivery by December 24.
