On today’s “Be The Change” segment we’ll hear about a Texas family that was inspired, and then empowered to Help, with a capital H. Taking on themselves the task of helping those affected by major disasters. At the heart of this story is a company you can use as a platform for charitable giving, social responsibility and personal fulfillment, all while supporting your own entrepreneurship

The PartyLite tradition of making the world’s finest candles dates back more than a century to one woman and one candle in the heart of New England, where American candle-making has its roots. In 1909, a schoolteacher named Mabel Baker began making bayberry candles in her Cape Cod kitchen. Soon she was producing the finest candles in New England. From those sweet, fragrant beginnings emerged a company that, in 1973, introduced a new concept and a new brand called PartyLite. Based in Plymouth, MA, today the company is the world’s #1 party plan company selling candles, candle holders, flameless fragrance and wax warmers, as well as holiday and home décor in 21 different countries.
