Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
As a 501c3 non-profit company, we generate funds for charitable purposes, such as micro-loans to honorably released veterans in need of financial assistance. During their service, those in the armed forces earn money to their GI bill. When activated is designed to keep them financially secure in the community in which they live while going to school during their transition to the private sector. Barbara our co-founder, was a USMC Sergeant Aircraft Rescue Firefighter. After her 4 years of service it took over 9 months to activate something she had earned, designed to keep her protected during her transition. She was fortunate to have friends & family to help her, what about those who dont? Your tax deductible contribution through the purchase of our soap can be used to pay a veteran utility bill or other such critical need. In return, the veteran serves in the community providing services equal to a living wage until the micro-loan is paid off using their donated time.

Those marked with a doggie paw sticker are limited to carrot, cucumber, and aloe vera safe for humans and their pets. All other of our soaps are made with vegan unrefined virgin Shea butter and oatmeal. Our therapeutic essential oils are manufactured by "Artisan Aromatics" of Western North Carolina. 80% of all our profits are returned to the community through veterans & their families, feed the children advocacy, and house the homeless initiatives in the locations where the soap is sold & distributed.
