Donation breakdown: Up to $1000, 85% of donations will be sent to Social Justice Collaborative, while 15% will be used to cover a portion of soap supplies for Soaps for Change. If we surpass our goal, 100% of donations beyond the goal amount will be sent to the Social Justice Collaborative! 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shipping costs range between about $3-$10 depending on location and weight within the US. We will ask for your Venmo so that shipping can be paid separately from your donation and will follow up with you on Venmo after you complete your order form. We can ship internationally, but shipping will likely cost more than the estimate provided above.

At the end of the fundraiser, we will post an update showing the receipt for your donations to Social Justice Collaborative.

We are Soaps for Change. Each initiative, we reward your donations to various social justice and civil rights organizations with handmade soaps!

Our first initiative was motivated by the killing of George Floyd - a moment that sparked national protests against and dialogue about police brutality, white supremacy, and structural racism. We focus on organizations that care deeply about civil rights and social justice, and those that focus on marginalized groups of people. So far, your donations have benefited Black Girls Code, The Marsha P. Johnson Foundation, GLSEN, Movement Generation, The Trevor Project, Black Voters Matter, and the Indigenous Environmental Network. We've raised over $7900 for these organizations!!! 

For each initiative (this is initiative #7), we highlight an organization that we send your donations to. This month we are highlighting Social Justice Collaborative!

For every $15-20 donated, we send you a handmade, all-natural bar of soap. This round, we have 6 new varieties to choose from, and 2 varieties that have rolled over from last initiative!

THANK YOU for your contributions! We hope you enjoy your soaps for change. :)
