Bright Endeavors: Empowering Young Moms

Lighting a path to a new future

Daily women are redefining what it means to be a mother and what motherhood can be. Although it has its beautiful moments some mothers struggle to find their footing as they try to adjust their career, lifestyle, and their tiny human. In some cases, women aren’t able to start and or keep a job while they are pregnant because of companies’ precautions or their unwillingness to comply with the needs of a pregnant woman or new mom. And you can best believe that the pay is not equivalent or even sustainable.

However, companies like Bright Endeavors are looking to shine a light on an alternative path that helps new moms and keep them progressing within their careers. Bright Endeavors is providing job security and competitive pay to new moms through the creation of their candles. Each candle is handcrafted by new moms and 100% of proceeds go to continue the mission ‘to empower new young moms, their kids, and our communities. In doing so they provide transitional jobs and professional skills training that these moms can use as they progress into other career fields. 

They say there is beauty in community and I for one am here for it. Often time we only think about the health and or standard of care of the child without thinking about the mother. Forgetting that the success of the mother is the success of the child, both mentally and physically. In this case, the beauty isn’t just in the candle but it the purpose behind it. I for one am a candle love because sweet warm aromas help me get into a steady work mode. I believe these candles will be a great addition to my collection because the intention of these candles is enough on their own.

These handcrafted candles come in an array of scents; warm, citrus, and floral. Each is made in Chicago and made with soy wax & phthalate-free fragrance. The candles come in three different sizes, 4 oz, 8oz, and approximately 12 oz sizes. One of the best features of the Bright Endeavors Candle is that they are a slow burn candle easily giving you 24 hours or longer of burn time per candle.
