Steve came up with the idea to start a company, sell a product, and give 100% of the profits away to missions projects that we believe in. When he first told me he wanted to make candles and sell them, I have to admit I was a bit skeptical. I have never made a candle, nor seen anyone make a candle. I just wasn't sure how easy or time consuming it might be.
Steve sold one of his nicest camera lenses and used all the money to buy supplies to start making candles. He bought molds, wax, a pour pot, dyes and fragrances, wicks, etc.
When Steve gets an idea, he is just an all or nothing kind of guy.
So he started making candles about two weeks ago, and I have to admit that he is pretty kick booty at it already!
Our friends Mike and Janessa came over on Friday. Mike and Steve are very like-minded guys, so Mike is into the selling candles for those in need idea as well. This is Mike:
And this is Mike's candle he made (with Butternut Pumpkin scent in case you are interested to know!):
So I was taking this picture of Mike's candle, and as I was focusing on the candle I was seeing his tatoo out of the corner of my eye. So now we have evolved from:
light for love.
Kinda catchy, huh?
If you don't think so, you don't have to tell me. I posted a semi-controversial article the other day and after getting a few comments from people that might have been slightly offended by the article, I decided I am sticking to my usual subjects. To be totally transparent, I just don't much like debating at all! I will leave the controversy to our friend Brett Tilford.
So I will keep you posted as we get further into this. We have lot's of details to figure out, but we are excited about the money that we could put into the hands of those that are being light and love to people (especially kids) around the world that desperately need it.
