Premier Soapmaking Event for Donors

By Nanette White

The December 2022 25-Pound Batch Soapmaking Live Demo Event helped raise $813.83. Although we fell short of our $1,200 goal, because of these generous donations, Soap Donation Center is able to send soap to charities across the US. In fact, we are so excited we are doing it again!

People are learning about our nonprofit organization. We are generating excitement. People are sharing their desire to participate. Kitty is such a person. She contributed to Soap Donation Center. Below are her comments about our premier event.

I donated to support the mission of the Soap Donation Center because it allows people who otherwise wouldn't be able to experience the high quality of handmade soaps to enjoy the products we make. As an added bonus, I will get to see Kerri Mixon and David Perez make a HUGE batch of soap, something I have not experienced personally as a budding soapmaker. This is a wonderful opportunity to help the community and improve my own knowledge at the same time.

Fundraisers to raise money for Soap Donation Center, Inc. are vital. Without fundraisers, nonprofits would cease to exist. Realizing the importance of them for our organization, we are focusing our efforts on our event, the 30-Pound Batch Soapmaking Live Demo + Q&A on June 25, 2023, at 1:00 pm Pacific time. Our president, secretary, and treasurer wrote statements sharing their thoughts and feelings on our upcoming fundraiser.

From our president, Kerri Mixon: I am very excited this may be our first fundraiser to generate much-needed funds and jumpstart our mission. Can you imagine the devastation that comes with being dirty and not having soap to properly clean yourself? Proceeds from the 30-Pound Batch Soapmaking Live Demo + Q&A donor appreciation event will be used to offset overhead costs and to ship bars of soap to charities throughout the US. With your help, we can provide someone in need with the gift of a cleaner future.

From our secretary, Danielle Carlson: While donations of bar soaps are certainly important, cash donations are vital to Soap Donation Center's mission. Without these funds to aid in operations, we are not even able to ship the donated soap to people in need.

From our treasurer, Brenda Combs: Our mission of providing soap to charities is so important. The funds raised will assist us in meeting our goals of reaching at least 20 charities within our first year.
