New partnership with White Candles


It’s World Heart Day this week. And, at the Heart Research Institute, we are excited to celebrate by announcing our new partnership with White Candles.

White Candles, luxury soy wax candles with a charitable twist, was founded by Megan & Ryan O’Donnell in honour of Megan’s mother Carol who passed away in 2015.

Carol was very passionate about supporting medical research and experienced the benefits of it first-hand during her own battle with cancer. Through White Candles, Megan and Ryan are continuing Carol’s legacy of supporting vital medical research into heart disease, cancer and mental illness.

The White Candles collection, available to purchase at

When you select “heart research” as your chosen cause at the checkout, 50% of proceeds will be donated to the HRI.

Everyone loves candles, so they are the perfect way to make a real difference while treating yourself or a loved one. The candles retail online for $59, which includes delivery anywhere in Australia, so next time you are thinking of buying a candle make sure you visit and help support the Heart Research Institute.
