Our Impact

One Candle at a time…

With a goal to donate at least 25% of the profit from each candle sold to established mental health organizations, Shed Some Light is contributing to making a difference in this world one candle at a time. Shed Some Light hopes to simultaneously fund the scientific advances in the field of mental health through the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation and support those who have been impacted by mental health through the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Learn more about both organizations below…

“The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is committed to alleviating the suffering caused by mental illness by awarding grants that will lead to advances and breakthroughs in scientific research.”

The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is the nation’s top non-governmental funder of mental health research grants and 100% of every dollar donated for research is invested into various research projects. By establishing a positive connection to put money into the hands of the right people, we hope to contribute to the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation’s mission of allowing those with mental illness to live full, happy, and productive lives.


“Established in 1987, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is a voluntary health organization that gives those affected by suicide a nationwide community empowered by research, education and advocacy to take action against this leading cause of death.”

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention seeks to impact the fight against mental illness by funding research, educating the public about mental health and suicide prevention, advocating for public policies in mental health and suicide prevention, and supporting survivors of suicide loss. We hope to support them in their mission and have an impact on all sides of the fight for mental health.
