The use of awareness ribbons started in 1979, when the wife of a hostage in the Iran Hostage Crisis tied yellow ribbons around trees to express her desire for her husband to come home. Since then, almost every cause has an associated ribbon to show support for their movement.
LJG Candles has several ribbon colors available for our candles and ornaments. We are constantly adding colors and color combinations to be sure that every cause is properly represented. Be sure to contact us if the color or cause you need isn’t listed and we will do our best to get it for you.
