Since its establishment in 2013, Emily Warr has had two big dreams for The Rustic House: to trigger memories through candles and give back to those in need. Upon founding The Rustic House, Warr and her business partner Chelsea Cash created a non-profit sector within the company in 2015, This Little Light.
“Since I started The Rustic House, I always thought it was important to give back to the community, no matter how big or small the impact,” says Warr. “This Little Light is truly the heart of our company.”
So what’s the purpose of This Little Light?
The Rustic House teams up with non-profit organizations to spread awareness and help raise funds. Since November 2017, they have partnered with HomeBound Books; a Chattanooga-based non-profit that provides Children’s books and bookshelves to local elementary schools in need.
When you purchase a Sweet Stories candle, $12 goes to HomeBound Books, which buys books and shelving.
The Rustic House loves helping at home, but they also want to lend a hand internationally. In the coming weeks, TRH is re-partnering with Rising Minds, a Guatemala-based non-profit that aids communities by teaching sustainability practices, education, gardening, nutrition and health training.

All in all, The Rustic House not only produces high-quality candles, but aspires to make a difference in the world as well. This Little Light is enabling them to do just that.
“We are all lights in this world, and it is our responsibility to help others shine,” says Warr.
