When you say Man Cans, you might think of something that is associated with “just for men” or something like that. On the contrary, Man Cans is simply a company that helps all, man or not. In fact, they go out of their way to help those in need. Man Cans was started by a boy. A boy that had a vision to help others and do so on a different level. So Man Cans buys up soups in cans and donates the contents to soup kitchens thereby feeding the hungry. Then they clean the can, and create a candle in the can and sale that as well.
To-date, according to their website, 80,000 meals has been donated. These days, the company not only makes Man Can candles, candles that are created to appeal mostly to men, but they also create She Cans. These are candles that are made of scents that mostly appeal to women. It is interesting to know that a child started a business that now feeds thousands of hungry people a year by using a simple process that can be associated with recycling. When you buy a candle you are helping to feed these needy people.
Looking over their site, you can see their big heart, “Great reasons to buy ManCans or SheCans this summer. Mothersday, Fathersday, Teachers gifts, Coaches gifts, Fundraisers, and the most important reason… Hunger doesn’t know a season. Help us help others.” The company is unique in the fact that they sell candles that are made so specifically appeal either to men or to women. Scents such as campfire, Memphis Style BBQ, Grandpa’s pipe, new mitt, bacon, coffee and sawdust are scents of their man candles that are usually not scents found made into candles by any company.
Scents such as French lavender flowers, burgundy wine, summer dandelion, refreshing verbena, soft heliotrope and red hot cinnamon are what you would find with their she candles. I just love the idea that this company is thinking and thinking about those that need food. We need more people like this little boy in the world today.
