Daisy Age loves to make charity soaps, already there is 'Bee friendly' honey and beeswax soap where 50p is donated to the Bumblebee conservation society and 'Bollywood' soap which donates 50p to SKCV Indian street kids charity and now there is 'SOAP of HOPE'
SOAP of HOPE is made with a double butter recipe using pure essential oils of orange, lavender, patchouli and sandalwood, swirled with purple and orange natural oxides and decorated with petals of cornflower and calendula.
My latest soap creation is for another very worthy cause and £1 from each bar of soap and 50p from each bag of bath truffles sold will be donated to the Mudoma primary school feeding program.
Mudoma primary school is in a very deprived area in the district of Busia in NW Kenya.
The charity last visited the area in April and were astounded at how much the porridge breakfast that was being provided had helped the children.
Currently 160 nursery class children are enjoying this meal. The headmaster said that these children now love to come to school knowing that they will get a hot meal before lessons. Many families can only afford one meagre meal a day.
To keep this program going for another year a target of £1000 needs to be reached.
£1 will provide a breakfast for a child for one month. So, by buying one bar of 'SOAP of HOPE' a child has a hot breakfast for a month.
For me this is a lovely way of donating money, knowing that it is going directly to those who need it and being able to see the benefits it has.
Daisy Age also sent out some 'Peppermint and rosemary' and some 'Lavender' soaps with the charity in April.
Everyone loved the soap and the most rewarding part of it is that it's really helping one of the girl Joanne's very delicate skin.
Along with some other artisans Daisy Age will be doing a monthly stall called the Hope Stall. There will be jewellery, greetings cards, soaps and aromatherapy bath and body products, beautiful handmade childrens dresses, charity biscuits and Bags of Hope which are lovely handmade bags made from African material, half the money from each bag sold will be donated to the feeding program, so come along and find us, dates and locations will be announced on here and on the Facebook page.
