Kenshi Life Changing Candles is a truly inspiring story of Liam Foldi who decided at 14 years of age he wanted to make a real difference in the world. After 3 years and over 25,000 candles sold, Kenshi has helped raise over one hundred thousand dollars for many different causes.
As the demand grew, Liam struggled to keep up with production. In 2019, Liam was introduced to the Chin refugee community from Myanmar who live in St Albans. Since then, the Chins have been a fantastic partner to Liam and hand pour all the candles. This creates much-needed income for this community to support family and friends still living under harsh military regime.
A MESSAGE FROM LIAM
I created Kenshi Life Changing Candles as a Social Enterprise to make it easy for any person, club, school, charity or business to raise money from what we already spend on gifts.
As a young person growing up in a wealthy city like Melbourne, I found most people honestly want to help others, but the hectic demands of life can make it hard for people to give back regularly.
Kenshi is about enabling people to give back and help those who are in need through buying a candle which they would have bought already. This way we can raise without anyone having to donate any extra money. Not everyone buys candles, but we all buy gifts.
I understand that while a great story is important, nothing can replace a quality product. This means never sacrificing quality which is why our candles are made with the highest-grade natural soy wax, essential oils and cotton wicks with no shortcuts taken when it comes to quality.
