For years, Green Springs has been selling Bridgewater candles, which help to feed kids overseas. We continue to be proud of this mission. We continue to sell Bridgewater candles and take pride in knowing we are helping to combat worldwide hunger. We're feeding kids. But what's the answer when customers ask "what about kids going hungry here?" I had my response and I believe in the response of "the kids fed by RiceBowls and Bridgewater are in areas without any government support, without food banks or safety nets; some of the children are found at the trash dump". That is all true. But still, how do you measure need? There is a hunger crisis in Oconee County. There are children here that arrive to school Monday morning ravenous as they went with too little food over the weekend. How can they learn when all they can think of it food?
Well. It's time. It's time for a better answer to those customers' questions about kids going hungry here.
Here's our new answer. Every time you buy a Milkhouse candle at Green Springs, Green Springs will donate $1 to the Education Foundation of Oconee County's BackPack Program, a nonprofit organaization which assists to feed over 500 children here in Oconee County at the cost of $160/child/year. I like this answer.
Milkhouse candles are 100% paraffin free and are made in the USA from American grown soy. Milkhouse candles burn super clean and have wonderful fragrances.
At Green Springs, we are proud of what we do and we are proud of both of our candle lines: Bridgewater Candles and Milkhouse Candles. Buy these American made candles & help feed hungry kids. This is cool.
