What’s New…

Communications have been a little quite over here, but things are really buzzing behind the scenes.

I have two new things I’d like to share with you today:

1 – If you’ve browsed the website lately, you may have noticed that we just added a new vendor to the Online Marketplace called Legend Soap Company.

This is a line of Fair Trade soap and lip balms are handcrafted from wet-milled extra virgin
coconut oil and infused with rich essential oils.  Each bar of Legend’s
premium soap contains the virgin oil of two farm-raised coconuts and is
free of harmful chemicals and perfumes and all of their products are all natural,
vegetarian and never tested on animals.  They also don’t contain any GMOs, parabens or artificial ingredients.  Please be sure to check them out by clicking here.

2 – I’m also really happy to announce that every purchase you make through Handmade Hive is helping to make a difference in the lives of women in the Lehigh Valley who are survivors of sex trafficking, sexual exploitation and sexual abuse.  10% of all Handmade Hive sales now go directly to the Truth Home.  You can learn more here.

New Truth Home (2)

Also, our fundraising campaign for the new sewing machines for the Truth Home (which you can read about here) is on-going.  We’re 55% of the way there and the fundraiser will stay up until we reach 100% or more of our goal.  Anything you can contribute would be greatly appreciated and the best news 100% of the money you donate goes directly to this fundraising campaign!!  No transaction fees, no administration fees, no behind-the-scenes fees!

Click here to be re-directed to the fundraising website.

Happy Thursday!

Best Regards – Courtney
