The perfect fit for non-profit appreciation gifts: A testimony from Root Cause

We continue our series focusing on why our partners and clients choose to work with us this week with a guest post from our partner, Root Cause, an awesome non-profit doing incredible pioneering work around social impact research and fostering innovation across sectors (just like us, they are driven by a passion for shaping the future of social problem solving!).

They recently ordered custom candles as appreciation gifts for event speakers, major donors and key stakeholders, and had the following to share about the experience:

“I am always on the hunt for special gifts to give our clients, partners, vendors as a thank you for their support and work. The tricky part is finding a gift that clients will actually use.

As a non-profit focused on advancing solutions to today’s toughest social issues, it’s also important that gifts are branded well, inexpensive, and socially conscious.  

While the appreciation gifts and promotional products you give out may seem insignificant, I have to say that it makes a huge difference to our clients when they receive something that is thoughtful, innovative and clearly represents our values. The value it adds to the relationship is anything but insignificant!   

Prosperity Candle gives me the opportunity to support their innovative social enterprise while giving beautifully designed and scented candles that delight my key constituents. 


One of the many services we provide at Root Cause includes investing in social enterprises; providing them with free consulting services and access to key funders and investors to strengthen their performance and impact.  When I purchase Prosperity Candles, I feel confident that these gifts will look awesome AND align with Root Cause’s mission and brand.  

We’ve even incorporated Prosperity Candle as a featured vendor for our Peer Performance Exchange in order to spread the word on how our clients and partners can make a real impact with gifts that give back.”

Women for Women International Partners with Prosperity Candle


Women for Women International, a fabulous organization founded by Zainab Salbi works to empower women survivors of war, was our very first partner. They have been our most valued partner, as they helped us launch our work in 2008 in Baghdad, Iraq with a group of women (mostly war widows) who had graduated from the Women for Women sponsorship program. Without their support, we simply couldn’t have started our work. And it certainly wouldn’t have been as well-designed for the women in Iraq.

Here is a screenshot of a blog post that they just featured us in:

Now we’re excited to share that we are also collaborating with Women for Women Headquarters in Washington DC. Not only are we working with graduates, but we’re teaming up to spread the word about great work that supports women survivors of war around the world. We’re proud to say that two of our candle gifts make a charitable donation to their work. We’re also very excited that we are about to get started on some Women for Women tin candles that will be used as donor gifts!
