“But Mommy… I can’t get a bath tonight. I don’t want my Spider Man webs to get all messed up!”
“…but Super Hero’s don’t get baths.”
“I’m a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, and my shell is way too big for the tub!”
“But I got one the last day…”
Suffice to say, our stinky Super Hero has a plethora of excuses for avoiding a good scrub these days.
He’s got BIG PLANS, and a bath (in his words) is just “wastin’ his time.”
To our Super Hero, the blessing of a bath doesn’t really feel like a blessing.
He doesn’t know what it’s like to not have safe, running water, clean towels, or a bar of fresh, new soap…and neither do I.
I have safe water, and I can access it whenever I choose.
I have a shower, and I can take one whenever I want.
I have towels, and I can wash them whenever I need.
I have soap, and I can buy it whenever I run out.
But so many others don’t have what I have and don’t have what we so easily take for granted.
So, for this month’s “do-good-give-away,” I am going to be giving away hope…in the form of SOAP!
Let me introduce you to SOAPBOX!
SOAPBOX is a company that is using their soap “to improve the world.”
In two, short years, they have internationally donated their soap to 11 countries (4 continents in total) and have also donated to those struggling in local homeless shelters, women’s shelters, and nursing homes across America.
So how do they do it?
1 bar of soap bought = 1 bar of donated soap for someone in need
1 bottle of liquid soap bought = 1 month of donated water for someone in need
1 bottle of body wash bought = 1 year of vitamins donated for someone in need
So what am I giving away this month?
Well, to someone in need, I am giving away 1 bar of soap, 1 month of water, and 1 year of vitamins!!!
And for one of you, lovely readers, I will be giving away 1 bar of soap, 1 bottle of liquid soap, and 1 bottle of body wash (your choice)!
So how can you win?
In the comment section below, share a blessing that you HAVE that you often take for granted and on Wednesday morning, I will choose a random winner!
Oh, and if you don’t win on Wednesday, check out SOAPBOX and look for ways that YOU, too, can donate to those in need.
