I've been looking forward to this day for almost a month, and it did not disappoint!

Today is Giving Tuesday, the 28th of November, 2017.  Giving Tuesday is a global movement of giving, especially to local communities.

Hyssop Tree gives to our community regularly because of you - when you buy a soap, we send a soap to an individual in crisis.  In honor of Giving Tuesday, we donated soap specifically today.

Feeding America, a local organization, currently serves 42 counties in Kentucky through over 200 partner agencies.  

Today, I delivered eleven pounds of soap to them!   These soaps are specifically going to women who are escaping unsafe environments.  That's 2,128 days of safety for women in crisis!

I want to personally thank you for making today possible.  I'm continually humbled by your generosity and your commitment to individuals in crisis.  You are taking Hyssop Tree soaps to places I never imagined.  You're impacting lives beyond what any single one of us could do alone.  But together, we are making a significant impact - in our local communities, and around the world.

Our soaps are on a mission, and together we made a big impact on Giving Tuesday 2017.  Thank you!!
