More than 3,000 children’s lives could be saved every day with something as simple as a bar of soap and clean water. – SoapBox Soaps
If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for a good cause. When a Soapbox Soaps rep emailed me earlier this month and introduced me to their company mission, I was intrigued. Sure, she could go ahead and send over some soap. I’d give it a try, I said.
When the boxes arrived in my mailbox, I started to do a little research on their company. I was pulled in by their Vimeo channel, and immediately fell in love with the cause and the people behind it (who I’ve never met!).
It’s simple. You buy a bar of soap – a vegan, cruelty free, gluten free, eco friendly, made in America, free of nasty chemicals bar of soap– and they give a bar of soap to someone in need.
But Jill, it’s just… soap. What is there to get so excited about? People around the world need much more than just soap.
Right? Is that what you’re thinking? Because I sorta thought that when I got the email, I’ll admit. But then I realized that soap is such a small thing to me because I take it for granted. SoapBox Soaps is giving bars of soap to kids all over the world who can use it to prevent (potentially life-threatening) disease. They’re are giving bars to homeless shelters across America, and to disaster survivors.
I’m sold. I signed up for my 2 random bars of soap (you can also pick which scent you want) to be delivered to our house every month for $10 a month with free shipping. $10 a month to do something and get something we actually need.
And the actual bars? I tried them out, and they’re great! They smell wonderful, the lather is nice, and they don’t leave your hands feeling dry, but also don’t leave a residue.
Leyna approves, too.
I didn’t get paid to tell y’all about this. I didn’t even promise to put them on my blog. I’m just a little smitten by this company and their mission, and I think it’s something you might like, too. It’s $10 a month. You get something useful. You help save lives. I’d call that a win.
