Giving Back to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society

In a way, Den Candle Co. would not exist without Meghan's MS diagnosis. So every March we launch our Sunday Brunch candles and wax melts. A portion of the profits from these products are then donated to the National MS Society.

Every candle sold is a $5+ donation, and a portion of every wax melt sold also gets donated. Through the month of March, any order containing at least ONE Sunday Brunch candle will have 10% of the order total donated to the National MS Society. 

The Design

Our Sunday Brunch candles and wax melts are made with orange wax, the color of MS awareness. We top them off with a butterfly.. The butterfly is said to be the symbol to represent MS for a few reasons. One is that MRI scans have a black space in the center that look like a butterfly. 

Why The National MS Society

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1946. Among many things, they have raised over $974 million for research, sponsor services to help those with MS (like providing cooling vest to help combat heat intolerance at no cost), and provide a wealth of knowledge on various topics. The National MS Society was the main resource for Meghan when figuring out which treatment option she preferred. 

Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that impacts the brain and spinal cord. Something triggers the immune system to attack the myelin that protects your nerve fibers. This causes an interruption of signals to and from the brain.  While everyones exact symptoms vary from person to person, common symptoms can include numbness, tingling, mood changes, memory problems, pain, fatigue, blindness and/or paralysis. There are a handful of treatment options to help control symptoms, but there is no cure for MS.
