Organic Handmade Soap with a Cause

5% Give Back

 

 

Why 5% Give Back?

When I founded Poppy Soap Co., I knew that I wanted to build a business that gave back. Thanks to the generous support of our customers and wholesale partners, from 2012 - 2014 Poppy Soap Co. has donated more than 6,000 bars of soap to women’s shelters across the country through our Bar for Bar program.  You helped us bring beautiful soap to many women and children in need.  THANK YOU! 

As our company grows, we would like to take our give-back promise to a whole new level.   Our Bar for Bar program was a lovely gesture of care, but many of these shelters need money.  Plain and simple.   With your help we want to put our money where our mouth is and make a large impact, which is why Poppy Soap Co. will donate 5% of our profits to 5 different in need U.S. women’s shelters each year.

The primary funding for most women’s shelters comes from the government in the form of grants. These programs would not exist without federal support. During the 2013 “Federal Shutdown,” many women’s shelters were faced with potentially having to close their doors due to lack of funding. Though things have gotten better, shelters are always at risk, and are often the first programs to be cut from spending budgets.

While my little company cannot fund an entire women’s shelter, what we can do is educate people about the continued need for public support in order for these programs to keep doing the important work they do. If there comes a time the government can no longer support them, it’s up to us. We’ll be here, hand-in-hand with our customers, doing what we can to spread the word, save the world and share some love – one donation and dollar at a time.

 

Why Women’s Shelters?

We recognize that intimate partner violence is far too common. It is devastating, not only for the person suffering abuse, but also for their children. Your 5% GIVE BACK donation is a personal way to tell these women and children that someone cares and that they are not alone. 

Poppy Soap Co. is a small part of the larger community and we want to support and uplift those in need. We believe that how we choose to spend our dollars makes a statement about what’s important to us. We may not be able to single handedly end intimate partner violence, but this simple gift of 5% of our profits offers victims comfort, encouragement, and renewal.  Your donations = Beautiful support for Beautiful women.
