The Soul Soap Mission
Soul Soup presents a vision for how business can serve its community through connection and charity.
Soul Soap's mission is to form deep and enduring connections with members of the community through the sale and charity of our artisanal bar soaps and cosmetics.
Each bar of soap presents an opportunity to connect with the community, engage in charity, and share a thoughtful message. Together, we can contribute to the growth of our community's soul.
Our most precious asset is our time and our most important decision is how we choose to spend our time. We all have a finite amount of time and this is the ultimate factor that binds us together.
Soul Soap is how I choose to give my time and energy to the community because giving our time to others is the most precious gift that we can give.
Our Founding Values
Community is the collective of people that come and go in our lives. It includes our closest friends and family as well as strangers whom we pass in the street. Our community is as small or as big as we choose it to be. How we choose to spend our time with others ultimately dictates how deep our connections run within our community.
Soul Soap exists to broaden and serve the community through meaningful interactions, generous giving, and thoughtful messages tied to our soaps.
Charity is the collection of actions that serve our community without seeking or expecting anything in return. We can be charitable to people and to nature. We can give with our money, our energy, and our time. From sharing a moment of happiness with a stranger to feeding birds in winter as they struggle to find food, acts of charity nourish our soul as much as they feed the souls of those around us.
Soul Soap is a medium through which we provide charity for our community.
Connection is the wonderful bond that we share with members of our community. Connection is a beautiful link through which we give and receive help, form lasting and meaningful friendships, and find greater personal purpose by learning to live more for others. We all have the ability to pursue deeper connections with one another through greater mindfulness.
Soul Soap welcomes a new member to its community and creates a lasting connection with each bar of soap.
Soul Soap is committing at least 5% of its soap production to support community members who are in need of charity. Examples of recipients include the following members of our community:
Example: children in hospital who could use a friend to read them a story and share a message of hope
Families on a Tight Budget
Example: families suffering through financial hardship despite no fault of their own
Example: a way of giving thanks to community members who display generosity, valiance, and courage
Example: families grieving the loss of a loved one and/or experiencing major upheaval in their lives
Natural Disaster Victims
Example: families who had their businesses, homes, and livelihoods swept away by torrential rains
Children Eager to Learn
Example: an opportunity to share values that last a lifetime, such as charity and generosity
