- Greetings, folks. We're here at the manufacturing centre for Kenshi Candles in St Albans with Michael Foldi. Mr. Foldi, what do people need to know about Kenshi Candles? Why do you like them? Why are you excited about them?

- That's actually a great word, excitement. After 30-odd years in business, and selling office supplies and photo copiers, these candles are about the most exciting thing that I've ever come across because they're an incredible way to raise money for any cause without asking anyone for a donation. They are an inspiration of a 14-year old boy who decided he wanted to change the world. Saw his mum, and aunties, and friends' mums, having all these dodgy candles they were complaining about and saw how much they were paying for them, and thanks to the internet, and Alibaba, and having supplies come from all over the world, he created these super high quality candles. And now, only 15 months later, there's been tens of thousands of dollars raised. There's been churches, charities, schools, businesses, individuals, all out there buying and selling candles with all the profit going to the cause. It's just the most practical way that I've ever seen of people being able to make a difference without having to make a donation.

- Wonderful. Well, if you're out there and you're looking to purchase a wonderful gift, and you're looking for a superior quality candle, couldn't be a better choice than Kenshi Candles.

- They are, and after selling thousands of them, literally, the response we get about the quality is quite incredible. You'd think, how on earth is a 14-year old boy going to make a great quality candle, and after four or five months of trial and tribulation, and reading different forums on the internet, and learning and learning, he has now created an amazing quality candle. And people come back and they rebuy them, and they say, "I used to pay $50 for my candles, "and now for $35 I get a better candle." Knowing that half that money is actually being donated back to their chosen cause. So, it is pretty amazing what has happened in just such a short period of time. And there's a lot of companies that are buying 30, 50, 100 at a time. They're an amazing way to thank clients and employees with a meaningful gift and not just a gift.

- Thank you so much.

- That's it, thank you.
