A fundraising project where every candle sold helps support Emerge Australia to continue providing education, advocacy, research and support services for people living with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).
“I’ve had ME/CFS for 17 years. I had to leave my career as a primary teacher/youth worker 7 years ago but I still feel passionate to help people, especially kids.
I know what it’s like to feel unseen and unheard with this illness and after two medical professionals recently asking me ‘What’s ME/CFS?’ I decided I had to do something. So the idea of Shine a Light on ME/CFS was born and I thought candles would be a perfect way to raise funds and awareness and help bring ME/CFS out of the dark.”
Kenshi Life Changing Candles was created by a 14 year old boy wanting to change the world. Now, the refugees from Myanmar living in Australia earn much needed income by producing thousands of candles every month.
These beautiful candles are made from natural soy wax, essential oils and cotton wicks. A non-scented option is available. The prefect gift for yourself or someone in your life.
