After reading in an article that a staggering 5 million children die each year from water-borne illness and that up to 45% of these deaths could be prevented by simple hand washing, Hand in Hand founders Bill Glaab & Courtney Apple knew they had to help. They decided to create a household product that could also save lives and Hand in Hand Soap was born!
By partnering with the worldwide child advocacy group, My Neighbor's Children, Hand in Hand focuses 100% of their in-kind donations to the most at-risk children in Haiti. To date, Hand in Hand has donated over 8 million bars of soap and has been able to build or help repair local wells that provide clean water to thousands of people across Haiti.
Additionally, Hand in Hand soap is committed to creating “sustainable suds” - created using socially responsible practices, Hand in Hand soaps are all-natural, cruelty-free, and environmentally friendly.
Hand in Hand started with one bar of soap and a simple mission: buy a bar, give a bar. With over 8 million bars of soap donated since 2011, Hand in Hand is changing the lives of children, one pair of hands at a time.
