Clean the World 2.0

Last year was our first time participating with Clean the World organization. We did a soap drive and started collecting soap from all our wonderful customers! And, if they didn’t have soap to donate, many helped with shipping costs. We were so overwhelmed and thankful for all the donations that we have decided to do it again this year!

For the entire month of Auigust we will be collecting soap donations to send to people in need of hygiene products. This includes people in the United States as well as around the world. Clean the World partners with World Vision, Feeding America, Harvest Time International, and The Floating Doctors.

Last year we had a goal of 325 lbs of soap to raise, and we received 329.6 lbs! All 329.6 lbs of soap we were able to send off to children and adults in need! This year, our goal will be 350 lbs of soap. Going up just a bit from last year, we hope to not only meet our goal but beat it!

We are not just accepting homemade bar soap, if you have any hotel amenities or any other soap products we will gladly take those as well. Anything and everything will help!

Lets take a look back at some of the soaps we received last year.

Here is our bubble wall. If you helped donate $1 to shipping costs you got to sign a bubble and it was placed on the wall.

    This is so awesome! Love looking at the soaps that were received last year and can’t wait to see this year’s =) I’m pretty sure we’ll have some at Bramble Berry since we’re re-testing each and every fragrance oil in a 5 pound batch (!!) so keep me posted if you’re short soap. =)

      We have the best customers, they are always so willing to help! Yesterday we received 295 lbs from a single customer!!! And it sounds like you have soap coming out of your ears! So we will definitely keep you updated.

      Thanks!
