Hi all :D Its been a busy summer here and I've been working on lots of projects. My latest project is finally ready to unveil.
On May 31st I was part of something amazing. I know many, if not most of you who read this blog aren't affiliated with a church, and may not even believe in a God. I'm not going to try to proselytize or shove Jesus down your throats. I'm not that kind of girl ;0) What I am is a girl who is all about doing the right thing and bringing a piece of heaven to earth. For me the foundation of that is Jesus, for you it might be something else. I won't judge...
So anyway, at our church on May 31st, as part of the sermon, lots of white buckets were placed around the stage. Those who had money were encouraged to give, those who had nothing were encouraged to take. I decided to go up and get money for a friend in need. As I was doing so a man I've never met walked up and put a 100 dollar bill in my hand. I don't even know what he looked like because my eyes were full of tears.
The events of that Sunday got me to thinking. With 4 kids and a husband in school our budget is tight. Where could I come up with extra money? Selling soap of course! That's when The White Bucket Project etsy shop was born.
I only have 4 soaps listed at the moment, but there are many more to come...(including laundry soap, if I can find the time) I wish I could give everything I make, but I'll have to keep a little from each sale to replenish my supplies. You have my word though that the majority of the funds will end up in the hands of those in need.
