Day 47: Mir Peace shiwa BEKE Mup HEIWA irini PAZAmani siochain

One of the most renowned lines for over the years has been “World Peace. I want world peace.” It is a response some now mock from years of Beauty Pageants. We all want World Peace. It would be a dream to have a world that did not fight and there were no wars or no unrest. Wars do nothing but cost us money, lives, and  a peace in our souls. Today I made a conscious effort to help find that peace.

GIVE 47: Day 47

Most days I step into a store to do some shopping and every one of those days I have a choice where I spend my money. Every product I purchase can create some changes in the world if I choose wisely. More and more companies are now encouraging and helping us make the decision to use your purchasing power to create these changes. Today is National Philanthropy Day and this week I will feature a different product or company that gives us the choice to buy with them while helping to create change. “Kiss my Face” is the first product I have chosen to help create that change.

Kiss My Face has a two fold impact for this purchase.

1) It is a multi purpose, biodegradable soap. “101 ways to clean” is the tag line. I don’t have to buy 5 different cleaning products I can just buy this one to clean everything from my toes to my kitchen counters. It is biodegradable. no parabens or phthalates, no animal ingredients or testing, the bottle is made from post consumer recycled materials and the bottle is also recyclable when I’m finished with it .

You would think that may be enough from one product but it keeps getting better.

2) Kiss my Face has partnered with Seeds of Peace donating 10% of each purchase to the education and awareness of peace in the next generation. This initiative is aimed at stopping the fighting between traditionally ethic backgrounds and bringing the next generation together to create peace now before the conflict can continue around the world.

All that is created because I needed some soap in my shower. Very little time or cost commitment is required by spending my hard earned money this way.

Time Commitement: 3 minutes to search out products to fit my criteria

Cost: Saved money from the last more expensive soap I had purchased
