This upcoming holiday season choose candles from our autism community as part of your tradition. Autism Candles is an autism equal opportunity project founded by autism self-advocacy and has been featured by Autism Speaks and shared by many others nationally. Since 2006 the goal has been to promote inclusion, new opportunity and to advocate for autism needs while providing candle making jobs.

Candles in the SeasonIn the months before the holidays consider planning to make autism candle making part of your holiday experience. Every candle from Autism Candles is handmade and designed to impress those who enjoy specialty aromas. Founded by autism self-advocacy, the candles also help raise awareness for autism advocacy and some opportunity for those in the autism community, and can make for a heartwarming gift.

The handmade candles are now available through Amazon to make your purchase and delivery experience better than ever. Over fifty fragrances can be found on Amazon. This includes ever popular aromas like Creme Brulee, Clove, Frankincense & Myrrh, Gardenia, Jasmine, Nag Champa, Fudge Brownie, Pumpkin Crunch Cake and many more.

Anyone interested in using these candles for fundraising efforts can contact Autism Candles directly for bulk orders.

Much thanks is owed to the the many individuals who share Autism Candles with their family and friends. The project would not have been possible nationally without the support of individuals. Autism page owners on Facebook have been especially helpful to the Autism Candles project. Thank You!

  1. Hello! Are the candles made by members of the autistic community? Does the company employ autistic individuals? Thank you.

    1. Autism Candles is 100% autism self-advocacy founded and managed. Since 2006 it was purely designed to provide opportunity to others with autism (sometimes other developmental disabilities) and to create unique awareness in the attempt to trend new kinds of opportunity and inclusion. The vast majority of funding is simply re-invested and is not used for a CEO or management salary for instance. It is in fact an ongoing creative awareness project and not really a profit minded project.
