Help Support Our Troops!

On Monday, April 16th, at 12 Noon, we will be stocking Yellow Ribbon soaps at our store on hyena cart to help support the deploying troops to the Middle East. Each soap will cost $4 plus shipping, and 100% of the profits will go towards a care package for our soldiers.

As a military family ourself(my husband, his sister, and brother are all active duty, and his step brother is National Guard) we understand firsthand what it is like to be away from home. Simple things like toiletries are usually expensive for the soliders to buy at the PX(Post Exchange), and some personal favorites are hard to find, as stock is limited. These items are also not supplied by the military, as soldiers have to use their personal paycheck(also hard to access overseas for some) to foot the bill. A lot of times family members and friends will be designated to send care packages overseas to lift this burden from the troops, but for those who do not have family or friends to do so, they have to rely on their fellow comrade to "spot them" or try and make do with what they can get at the camp PX.

We would like to ease the soldiers' mind of this by sending them a care package. We are asking if you would like to help by purchasing a bar of our Yellow Ribbon soap. All of the funds received will go towards this care package, its contents and shipping.

We thank you for your support!

Hey, I recently added a news widget from to my blog. It shows the latest news, and just took a copy and paste to implement. Might interest you too.
