Sample Soap is a grassroots organization which requires no monetary donation. All they ask for is a little bit of your time to either sort or distribute toiletries to those who are less fortunate, e.g. homeless, battered women and children. The founder of this organization is very enthusiastic and welcomes any and all ideas which the group brings forth. When I leave our monthly get togethers, I always feel I have added value. I would recommend this organization to anyone looking to get their feet wet in the volunteer arena.
