Here at Home Scentsations we support a great many of charities in our lives and from our sales in our business. We set aside 10% of our product total collected to donate to charities at the end of the year.
In our category descriptions you will see notes if the portions goes to a specific charity for those items sold in that category. If you do not see one listed it does not mean there is no contribution made, it is just not specifically designated.
We support the community in which we live in many ways. With our time, product donations, donations, fund raisers and contributions. Below you will see a list of the charities we contribute to and at the end of the year we will publish our efforts here.
Help Us to Help Others
Here are some ways you can directly help us to help others. We will match all these donations 100% in production of our products reaching others in need. Please be assured all monies collected for these specific causes will go directly to those causes as defined below.To be a part of our outreach programs to bring specific products to meet specific needs use the following links:
Soap For Hope
For every $1.00 donated we will match with the materials to create one 2 oz. bar of Soap to be given to the Red Cross to be used in disaster situations where sanitary conditions are weakened and disease can become a threat. Our bar Soap provides extra disenfecting and anti bacterial properties and can help in situations such as floods or where infection to injuries is a danger/risk.
Baskets Not Caskets
For every $5.00 donated we will match with the materials to create 1 med. bath basket to be given to Patients receiving Chemo Therapy at Hospital's Cancer Centers. We have developed Soaps, Bath Salts and Bath Teas that can help lessen the effects of Chemo Therapy by adding properties and anti oxidants that help build the blood up in the taxing process of Chemo Therapy. We make no claims of curing any kinds of cancers. We also in no way discourage people from seeking and being under a doctors care and guidance.
You can donate here to help us to realize our dream of obtaining a real brick and mortar store to better offer and manufacture our products to our community. Any and all donations will go 100% to our cause and will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for helping us to help others.
