It’s all about spreading more love & kindness in this big wide world.
Be the Light was inspired by a previous project called “ Light Up the World”. It all began after Jess's first trip to Africa several years ago, where the locals actually lit up her heart & filled her with gratitude. These people don't get to choose what situation they were born into, yet their smiles were so genuine.
After this Jess met an incredible lady who invited her to go back. She went for a week, lived like a local & met a legend named Barney, a former soldier child, who had dreams for his future, just like we do. This trip strengthened her desire to want to help in whatever way she could. Jess came home & learnt how to make candles & after lots of work she produced 250 pure soy, lime & coconut scented candles & sold them. To great success, all the candles sold & 100% of the profits went to purchasing Barney a piece of land in a safe village in Uganda.
