We've always made giving back part of the mission of GUY FOX. For example, toward the beginning of COVID, we created face masks and used the profits to buy PPE for healthcare workers. To date, we've donated over $26,000 to non-profit partners, and today, we're taking things to a new level.
We've teamed up with non-profit organizations that benefit each of the communities our candles are named for. From now on, we'll be donating 5% of sales from those candle sales to these partners!
Check out their stories below and be sure to snag a candle to support them in their missions!
PCH: Boys & Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley
Area(s) Served: Huntington Beach & The Surrounding Areas
Mission: To inspire and enable the healthy development of all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring members of our community.
Why We Chose Them: Having a candle named after the PCH gave us a wide variety of areas and organizations to choose from, but we focused on the Huntington Beach area because Grant's parents both grew up there, and we thought it'd be great to team up with a partner as reputable as Boys & Girls Clubs! We're so stoked that our best-selling candle will help kids in one of our favorite beach towns.

Del Mar: Surfrider Foundation - San Diego County
Area(s) Served: San Diego County
Mission: The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches, for all people, through a powerful activist network.
Why We Chose Them: After we named a candle after our adopted home, it quickly became one of our best sellers. In looking for a nonprofit partner for the Del Mar, the Surfrider Foundation was immediately our first choice. The work they do to protect the ocean we love so much is amazing, and we're so proud to be doing our part in supporting them!

SoHo: Muddy Paws Rescue
Area(s) Served: New York City
Mission: The mission of Muddy Paws Rescue is to build and support a thriving community of dog-loving humans dedicated to ending unnecessary euthanasia of companion dogs. We do this through shared learning and education, direct lifesaving, and continuous innovation.
Why We Chose Them: We're big dog people, so it only made sense to have a partner who benefits our furry friends. The work Muddy Paws does saves so many lives, we were thrilled to team up with them! Do yourself a favor and take a look at their adoptable pups here.

Noma: Community Foundation Sonoma County
Area(s) Served: Sonoma County
Mission: At Community Foundation Sonoma County, we believe in the power of connecting people, ideas, and resources to benefit all who live here. We invest in the promise of Sonoma County.
Why We Chose Them: Liam and Grant met in college at Sonoma State University and paid homage to their time in the area with the Noma candle. As you may have heard, Northern California wine country has been affected by an insane amount of wildfires recently, so we wanted to partner with an organization that helped those who had lost their homes and communities. The Community Foundation Sonoma County does all that and more!

Bondi: Bondi Surf Bathers’ Life Saving Club
Area(s) Served: Bondi Beach
Mission: No lives lost on Bondi Beach.
Why We Chose Them: After vacations to Australia that included beach days in Bondi, both Liam and Grant were stoked to name a candle after the area. However, it turns out Bondi Beach can be as dangerous as it is beautiful. Founded way back in 1907, the Bondi Surf Bathers’ Life Saving Club has recorded over 27,732 rescues! We wanted to support their efforts in keeping everyone safe while enjoying one of our favorite place on Earth.

Venice: Safe Place For Youth
Area(s) Served: Venice
Mission: To empower young people experiencing homelessness to thrive by providing lasting, community-driven solutions that address racial and social inequity.
Why We Chose Them: Venice is one of our favorite neighborhoods in LA but, if you've been in the area recently, you know the homelessness problem is completely out of control. We knew that the non-profit partner for our Venice candle should be an organization that addresses that issue. Safe Place For Youth focuses on the homeless youth in Venice providing them with services like health and wellness, education and employment, and housing assistance.
