As a social enterprise, we donate a minimum 50% of our profit. Below is a list of great causes we have supported in the last few years.
In September 2021, Kenshi Candles partnered with the Make A Difference Community to help eradicate hunger in Australia.
Every Kenshi Candle now funds 6 packs of pasta which is 24 meals going directly to people in need here in Australia.
This is a massive impact for each candle.
The pasta is purchased every month from Bonfood and donated to the largest food charities in Australia. This is how we can be certain of the exact amount of pasta that each candle funds. There are no admin fees, wages or rent. Just a huge impact of 3kg of pasta being provided to people in Australia who desperately need a helping hand.
