$22 for Four-Piece Soy-Candle Set ($44 Value)
When adolescent parents arrive at New Moms, Inc. seeking supportive services, 80% of them have dropped out of school and are operating at an average fourth-grade level, according to a report by the organization. Help fund services at New Moms, Inc. for adolescent parents with this Grassroots campaign: for $22, you get a four-piece soy-candle set from Bright Endeavors, a social enterprise of New Moms, Inc. (a $44 value). The Dreambean home-collection set includes four 8-ounce Dreambean soy spa candle tins. Each set includes four different candle scents: lemon tea, vanilla, sweet mint, and lavender twist, and the tins come vertically stacked in a burgundy organza bag with a Dreambean tag. Each candle is made from 100% soy and vegetable waxes and burns for approximately 40–50 hours. Bright Endeavors also uses natural botanicals and reclaimed and recycled glass to create their eco-friendly products, which are handmade and packaged by program participants. All proceeds from the company's sales go to support its parent organization, New Moms, Inc., which provides services for adolescent parents including food, supportive housing, and career services.
Bright Endeavors provides job experiences for adolescent parents to help them transition to self-sufficiency. As part of the job-training program, adolescent parents aged 17–24 manufacture and market home and bath products for sale on the website. Working in the manufacturing and marketing positions provides on-the-job experience to help them transition into economic stability.
