Light the Way

There are more than 750 million people in the world that lack access to clean water. More than half of those people live in Africa. 840,000 people die every year from disease related to unclean or lack of water. That’s more than 30 percent of the Chicago’s population.An organization called Global Greengrants makes grants to community projects that help make the world safer and healthier by connecting these communities with individuals, foundations and businesses that want to make a difference.

Over the past eight years, Global Greengrants has partnered with Aveda to make a difference in communities that lack access to clean water, one of the most crucial risks around the world. In these past years, this partnership has supported more than 1,300 community-led projects in 78 countries.One hundred percent of the proceeds from each and every candle goes to helping another life that has been impacted by lack of clean water. In eight years we have helped more than 750,000 lives. That might still be less than the amount we lose each year, but it definitely makes a difference.

You can help make a difference by purchasing Aveda’s Light the Way candle for 2015.
