Soap Donations Wanted to Help Domestic Abuse and Homeless Shelters
From Nature With Love is pleased to help coordinate handcrafted soap donations to benefit three domestic violence shelters and one homeless shelter. The domestic violence shelters, The Prudence Crandall Center, The Umbrella, New Reach and The Women's Center of Greater Danbury are non-profit organizations that are dedicated to serving victims of domestic abuse. The domestic abuse shelters offer shelter and other services for adults and children that have been victims of violence and who are escaping both physical and psychological abuse. The Spooner House provides both housing to homeless individuals and families. They also provide emergency food and supplies for individuals and families with insufficient income to meet their needs.
If you are a professional artisan with experience making and selling handcrafted soaps, we would like to ask you to please consider donating several of your soaps for the benefit of the women, children and families living temporarily in these shelters. In many cases, for instance, the women and children housed within the domestic abuse shelters have suffered monumental abuse and arrive at the shelter with only the clothes on their backs. Although nothing can camouflage the pain these victims have endured, sharing products that are so necessary yet beautiful and luxurious will act as an expression of compassion.
For professional artisans that graciously donate soaps to benefit the individuals at these shelters, we will proudly list your name, company name and Web site address on the Soap Donator Thank You page. This page will allow us to recognize your contribution. If you have a Web site and desire to do so, you are welcome to mention your contribution(s) on your Web site and link to the Soap Donator Thank You page or to this main Soap Donation informational page.
As you may know, the number of links to your Web site originating from popular Web sites such as FNWL can help to increasing your ranking within the search engines. We hope that by linking to your site from the Soap Donator Thank You will provide added benefit to your Web site.
If you have donated soaps to the program, you are welcome to copy one of the below banners, upload it to your site and use it to let your customers and Web site visitors know of your generous donation. Please only use one of these banners if you have donated soaps that meet the guidelines mentioned below.
If you know of other soap makers that may be interested in donating soaps to benefit the domestic abuse and homeless shelters, we would be grateful if you would let them know about this donation program.
If you are considering providing a soap donation, we would like to thank you so much in advance. We ask that all donations be sent to us at the address shown below so that we may inspect the soaps for quality and ship them all at regular intervals to each shelter. Thank you for keeping the following guidelines in mind when making your donation:
Please Note: If the time comes when we receive more soaps than are needed by the shelters, we will seek out additional shelters to give the donated soaps to.
"I use (and love, love, love!) your Pearlesecent Micas which get me compliments all the time, from coworkers to makeup artists at swanky cosmetic counters. It's cool because people are always asking me where I bought my eyeshadow and it's satisfying to say, "I didn't buy it-- I made it!" As someone with a darker-than-medium skin tone, it's great to be able to blend my own colours that actually show up on me, e.g., 1 part Golden Glow to 1 part Matte Orange = "Yummy Peach"."
