Every holiday season Eleven Peppers Studios delivers a special gift to our clients, mentors, and supporters, just to say thank you. In 2015, we wanted to say Happy Holidays in a meaningful way, by giving back to the community.
After reading the stories about children facing life-threatening medical conditions, and understanding what the Make-A-Wish-Foundation does for them, we were inspired to make individual donations to the organization on behalf of our clients, supporters, and mentors.
To commemorate the donation, we aimed to personify the magic behind wishing. When we thought back on the last time we or someone close to us made a wish we immediately thought about blowing out the candles on a birthday cake… and with that an idea took flight. EPS collaborated with a local vendor to create Blood Orange Chili scented, hand-poured, soy candles. The scent was deliberately chosen as a not-so-subtle echo of the Eleven Peppers brand.
The Make-A-Wish-Foundation’s mission statement is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enhance the human experience with Hope, Strength, and Joy.
With this in mind, EPS specifically designed the candles to incorporate three wicks to symbolize each word in the mission statement: the Hope of a parent or loved one, the Strength of a child who is going through treatment, and the Joy of all those who volunteer and are involved with these wishes.
