The fragrance of this jolly candle is subtle and relaxing. Your home will be filled with a pleasant fragrance immediately upon opening the box containing the candle. And, once the candle is all burned away, the glass jar with its attractive black lid makes a decorative ornament – years of enjoyment long after this long lasting candle has gone! This candle will burn for an amazing 65 to 85 hours.
Important: by purchasing this candle you will also be supporting a charity scheme! Every candle sold means that one child will be fed for one day.
Project 'Light a Candle • Feed a Child'™
Bridgewater will donate a portion of the profits on each of these scented candles sold, to the project ‘Light a Candle * Feed a Child’. This project is concerned with feeding orphans everywhere around the world.
There are almost 144 million orphaned children in the world and every 2 seconds one of those orphans dies from hunger. Bridgewater Candle Company is trying to help change the lives of these orphans, together with Rice Bowls™, a non-profit organisation with the mission to feed all orphans everywhere.
How can you help?
Bottom line… easily: 1 scented candle = 1 day’s food for 1 orphan. So, for every candle you buy, Bridgewater will donate enough money to feed 1 orphan sufficiently for 1 day.
Since the project started in June 2010, Bridgewater has managed to feed orphans with 758,125 days’ worth of food. This is 2,274,325 full meals. The meals are donated to orphans the world over.

* Repeatedly snuffing a candle actually increases burning time because the wax melts or burns up less quickly. It will therefore last longer.
