"I remember coming into the program and realizing that for years, the candle was lit for me. Knowing that people loved me and were fighting for me long before I ever knew was humbling and I am forever grateful. Making our candles is the most important thing I do. Healing, hope, and unconditional love go into each one."

A Note From Jon ​​

As we enter this season of  joy, life, and light, I am excited to once again partner with Thistle Farms to help women victims of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction find healing, hope, and freedom. 

This is the 5th year of this partnership! Each year, we exceeded our goal of selling 500 candles within days of announcing the campaign.


I'm excited to do it again this year! ​
