I have two words for you: SOAP SACK! I’m obsessed.

It all started when I read Lion Brand’s blog post about Stacy Weiner starting a Soap SACK movement. Now I can practice my stitches, get instant gratification (they work up super quick), and feel like a do-gooder. Win, win, win!

SACK stands for Serving A Community through Kindness. The charity encourages crocheters and knitters to make the cozies, fill with packaged soap, and donate to your local food pantry. Weiner explains that basic toiletries promote good personal hygiene and raises self esteem. Soap is not often donated to pantries and is a much needed and requested commodity. To learn more about how to donate please visit Lion Brand’s blog post http://www.lionbrand.com/blog/charity-project-make-a-soap...

And if you need a nice quick teacher gift (Hey mom, teacher appreciation day is tomorrow. I need something nice for Miss. Stephanie) grab one of the soap cozies from your pile of SACKs and throw some fancy soap in it! Who doesn’t love a handmade, useful gift that smells nice?!
