A percentage of the proceeds from every candle Steenburgen and her business partner, daughter Lilly, sell will go to good cause Heifer International - which donates livestock and plants to disadvantaged families around the world.
The actress reveals, "My daughter Lilly and I started a candle company, Nell's Compass. It's named after my mom Nell.
"Part of the proceeds go to benefit Heifer International. It's a very cool organisation that gives gifts of animals to people all over the world, to help lift them out of poverty."
