A Cheerful Giver Candles not only produces quality candles, but they also have a heart for giving back to their community by helping those who need it most. Their wicking process is carried out by adults with special needs in conjunction with a community partnership program established by Vineland, New Jersey. Every day, special needs adults work anywhere from a few minutes to up to 6 hours a day completing the wicking process of every A Cheerful Giver jar candle. The time commitment is completely up to each adult in this program, and each "wicker" happily brings home a paycheck daily, reaping the accomplishment of their work and developing a sense of pride and purpose. With every A Cheerful Giver candle you purchase, know that you are helping to give back to this amazing program!
