Soap Donations Wanted to Help Domestic Abuse and Homeless Shelters
From Nature With Love is pleased to help coordinate handcrafted soap donations to benefit two domestic violence shelters and one homeless shelter. The domestic violence shelters, The Prudence Crandall Center and The Umbrella are non-profit organizations that are dedicated to serving victims of domestic abuse. Both domestic abuse shelters offer shelter and other services for women and children that have been victims of violence and who are escaping both physical and psychological abuse. The Spooner House provides both housing to homeless individuals and families. They also provide emergency food and supplies for individuals and families with insufficient income to meet their needs.
If you make handcrafted soaps, we would like to ask you to please consider contributing several of your soaps for the benefit of the women, children and families living temporarily in these shelters. In many cases, for instance, the women and children housed within the domestic abuse shelters have suffered monumental abuse and arrive at the shelter with only the clothes on their backs. From Nature With Love has donated baskets and other items. Although nothing can camouflage the pain these victims have endured, sharing products that are so necessary yet beautiful and luxurious will act as an expression of compassion.
For those that graciously donate soaps to benefit the individuals at these shelters, we will proudly list your name, company name and Web site address on the Soap Donator Thank You page. This page will allow us to recognize your contribution. If you have a Web site and desire to do so, you are welcome to mention your contribution(s) on your Web site and link to the Soap Donator Thank You page or to this main Soap Donation informational page.

Please Note: If the time comes when we receive more soaps than are needed by the shelters, we will seek out additional shelters to give the donated soaps to.
"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
