About Candles for Kids

Meet Lucas, founder and creator of Candles For Kids

My name is Lucas and I created Candles For Kids. I am 10 years old. I started this business after reading the book Barefoot Investors for Kids, this book taught me the steps of how to start a successful business. This was the start of Candles For Kids.

The reason I decided to make candles was because I always thought that making candles would be fun, and I also thought it would be cool to make candles that smelt like things that kids would love. Like lollies.

The other reason I started Candles For Kids is because I really like the idea of donating to WIRES an animal support charity, that I donate money to with every purchase. So, if you buy these candles, you’ll not only be helping me but helping animals in need all around Australia.
