For those of you who aren't familiar with Work for Good, they launched four years ago with the purpose of helping bridge the gap between small businesses and charities. They have helped businesses raise over £1.75 million pounds for local causes so far in their journey. When I came across Work for Good last year I knew I wanted to get involved, I'm hugely passionate about a few causes, mainly those related to emotional wellbeing, and making others feel good is what Candle & Coaster is all about for me. My purpose when making my home fragrance is to create joyful moments for others and I soon realised I could increase how many good moments happen by donating a portion of each sale through my site.
