As part of our Soap Hope Community you have probably noticed that we consistently communicate two unique messages at the same time.
On the one hand, we always want to share great products and specials with you. We want you to know when you can get a free Zum bar, or when we start carrying something we haven’t had before, like eye liner and eye gel.
And we always want you to know about our mission and the women we empower, and our belief in the capability and responsibility of businesses to take part in resolving our world’s biggest problems.
So in our shop you’ll hear as much talk about women’s economic development, social impact, poverty and education as you’ll hear about new colors and designs, product purity, safety and new developments in natural products for body and home.
This week we were reminded once again of Malala Yousafzai, the amazing young woman who has been standing up for the right of all people to be educated, regardless of their gender, religion, or geography.
During this very difficult week of violence in the world, it’s easy to get dispirited. Malala reminds us that we need to stay committed to education, even in the face of fear and violence. She reminds us that one of the best roads to peace is the empowerment of women.
If you haven’t seen Malala, watch her talk with Jon Stewart below about what motivates her to stand up for women’s education rights.
Thank you, Malala!
