Hey ladies! Mother’s Day is coming up next month and if you’re anything like me, a planner and dreamer, then perhaps you are racking your brain for ideas to get your special Mother for her special day, that she can cherish, and that fits into your price budget. Wonderfully Made came across a beautiful organization called Sisterhood Soap that might make a unique gift for your Mom!
Sisterhood Soap supports women who lost everything in Iraq because of ISIS. The refugees are women and girls just like you and me. They are mothers. They are daughters. They are sisters. And they do what they can to get by since they fled from their homes.
The soap is natural made with wild herbs and pure olive oil. It is chemical, alcohol, and dye free unlike many big brand soaps in stores. But more than the soap being of quality is that is handmade by women trying to make a difference in their families who have so little. Check out this website for more information on Sisterhood Soap and the women from Iraq, who use their gifts in making a worthwhile product in order to feed their families and get through daily life.
For $10 you can buy a bar of soap, or if you are inspired by the stories, consider sponsoring a woman to build her own business with a monthly donation.
Remember, we are all sisters in Christ and your donation and help can go a long way, as well as bless your own Mother!
