Koko’s Candles is owned and operated by Janeen Kokodynski in Scottsdale, Arizona. After losing her one month old son Matthew to a congenital heart defect in 2005, Janeen worked tirelessly with The Children’s Heart foundation to fundraise while also creating awareness. In 2017, she combined her love of candle making with her commitment to this nonprofit and Koko’s Candles was born.  

At Matthew's funeral, hammered pewter hearts were passed out. These hearts were slightly misshapen and imperfect - just like Matthew's. When Janeen launched her company, she knew she wanted to incorporate these hearts into her candle line. Before each candle is poured, a small heart is placed at the bottom. After the candle has burned, you may remove the heart and place it in your change purse or pocket to serve as a reminder that you are loved. 

A portion of the profits from each candle is donated to The Children's Heart Foundation.

The Children’s Heart Foundation has partnered with Helping Hands Charity Services, an organization that helps non-profits by delivering the proceeds from donated cars directly to the non-profit of your choosing! Helping Hands takes care of all the heavy lifting for you and us by towing and handling the sale of the vehicle.

Do you have a special Heart Warrior, Angel, or occasion you'd like to honor in a unique way? A donation to The Children's Heart Foundation offers a meaningful and impactful way to honor a person or occasion, or memorialize a loved one. These gifts generously drive our mission of funding the most promising CHD research.
