We recently received this email from one of our blog readers.
“I read on your blog that you sometimes send soap gifts to people to spread the love. …
“My Mom definitely needs something to brighten her day. My ‘baby’ brother, Jeff, (47) died suddenly of a massive coronary Dec. 10,2012. To say we are devastated would be an understatement. One month after my brother passed away, my dad had a heart attack. He lays in bed 90% of the time, leaving my mom to take care of everything. They heat with a wood stove, so while dad lays in bed and mourns, she goes out in the rain, snow, whatever to put wood in the wood furnace. She is 76 years old. My heart breaks for her, she says the wood is heavy, but she has to do it. I live 3 hours away so I am not in a position to help her. Due to health problems, my Dr. will not give me a work release, so I live below the poverty level, therefore, I am unable to buy luxury items, for myself or anyone else. If you are in a position to send the soap, I will tell you my Mom likes spicy smells, now me I’m definitely a chocolate girl Thank you for your time. Vicki”
One of our missions at the YesterYear Soap Company has always been simple… ‘Spread the Love’.
We have been fortunate enough to be in a position to give some of our products to those who could use a smile. We have given gift bags of our soap to women’s shelters for years. In addition, when we hear from someone down on their luck, we like to ‘Spread the Love’ with a simple gift of soap.
Well, Vicki and her mom will both receive gift sets of our YesterYear soap bars, and yes Vicki, you will get some of our ‘Triple Chocolate Sundae’ soap.
We hope thing get better for you and your family but in the meantime, stay positive and understand that there are people out there that care.
