Our Story

IgniteHope is a nonprofit dedicated to create hope and empowerment for people undergoing cancer treatment. We are doing this through making candles.

Candles have a magic ability to warm our hearts and chase away the shadows. It is our goal to create candles to be lit in times of sadness, defeat, or struggle. As the candle burns, handwritten messages of love and support are discovered. These messages are all unique and written with the intention of bringing peace and hope to the person who has lit the candle.

Our mission started when our founder and president , Jenna Lindman, wanted to help people undergoing cancer treatment. She is a cancer survivor of 3 years and wanted to make a difference in the lives of people going through the same thing she did.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Through this she created IgniteHope, a nonprofit that donates candles with inspiring and uplifting messages hidden in the wax to cancer survivors.

 

 

"I remember when I went through chemo, it was the toughest thing I had ever faced," recalls Jenna. "I was surrounded by awesome family and friends and had a great network of support, but I still felt very isolated. Sometimes the most meaningful gifts and cards I received were from strangers who heard about what I was going through or acquaintances. There was something very special about someone who didn't know me that wanted to say 'hey, I hope you're doing alight.' I decided that I wanted to try to bring that special feeling to others."
