Each semester, Soap Cycling recruits a diverse team of passionate and hardworking undergraduate student interns. This semester's HR Team showed great persistence and resourcefulness to organize this crowdfunding campaign.

In particular, Jeanny from Jakarta, worked really hard to find the Indonesian NGO counterpart, Odesa Indonesia, who will receive the soap from our current crowdfunding campaign: http://bit.ly/Soaper-Hero-2-Indonesia.

Happy Mother's Day!

There's a new Soaper Hero adventure starting up this year. This time we're teaming up with a new charity partner in Java, Odesa Indonesia, to raise funds to ship soap for their new program called "Mandi, Cuci, Kakus." For those of you who don't speak Bahasa, that means "Shower, Wash, Toilet."

Please check it out!
http://bit.ly/Soaper-Hero-2-Indonesia

30% of the residents in the Bandung region of Java have no access to improved sanitation facilities. This leads to increased incidence of diseases such as cholera, pneumonia, and diarrhea, deadly killers of children and the elderly. Help them out with a donation to ship soap this Mother's Day.

Soap saves lives. Just as our mothers taught us all to wash our hands before meals and after use the washroom, the use of soap is the most effective way to reduce disease in children under 5 years old in the developing world.

The Soaper Hero Campaign is up to $3,200 HKD! That's enough funding to ship soap for 900 kids to stay healthy and clean for a year.

Thanks!

Soaper Heroes far and wide are sending back their amazing stories of the impact created by Soap Cycling and our supporters.

Today's update comes from all the way from Mindanao in the southern Philippines. The Bajau tribes of Iligan City, commonly referred to as sea gypsies, are often reduced to begging and live at the margins of Philippine society. This past Christmas your soap was sent to the remote town of Iligan in northeastern Mindanao. The Bajau tribespeople, often referred to as Sea Gypsies, face continued discrimination from the predominant Muslim society and are forced into a marginal existence of begging on the streets.

The soap shipped with your help last Christmas, distributed by a local Catholic charity, can help this community avoid disease, save money, and lift themselves out of poverty. Thanks!

Check out a video of the distribution on our Youtube channel: https://youtu.be/d3ECzQp4QDc

Happy New Year!

Huge thanks to everyone who contributed to our first Sparkraise campaign. We're getting reports back from the Philippines on the tremendous impact created on the lives of people whose lives were devastated by Typhoon Mangkhut.

These photos come from the town of Banuyo in Eastern Samar province. Distributed by Soaper Hero Lilian Ranos, 100 families in the village received 1 kg or 25 bars of reprocessed soap.

Thank you all for your support to make this happen!

Hello backers! We hope everyone is having a good week! With 19 days remaining, we are running out of time.

Today, we will look into one of our charity partners, Kilos Bayanihan Inc. This charity aims to serve the children in the streets of Manila, Philippines. These children are in this unfortunate situation only because they lack the opportunity that you and I have. Kilos Bayanihan Inc., thus, provides food and educational programmes in an attempt to supply that opportunity. Soap Cycling comes in since we have the available supplies of soap these disadvantaged people need especially after the two typhoons' devastations. Kilos Bayanihan Inc. is one of our partners that aids Soap Cycling distribute the soap once it enters the country.

We can all contribute by joining this journey. #BeASoaperHero on Facebook and Instagram to help us share the word.

With 25 days remaining, we have raised 25% of our target! Huge thank you to every backer that has taken the time and effort to contribute to help ease the cause of the campaign.

We understand that some may wish to donate soap directly rather than provide funds. This is not essential since Soap Cycling has a vast amount of supplies that it receives from hotels and other related locations for recycling purpose. What Soap Cycling is in need of is simply the money to cover the logistic costs of shipping what we already have to the charities out there in the Philippines. However, we welcome anyone that has the desire to do so. You can bring your soap to Soap Cycling's warehouse at Kwai Chung or ship it to our office. For more details, feel free to email us at info@soapcycling.org

The Philippines is in urgent need of our goodwill. #BeASoaperHero on Facebook and Instagram to help us share the word.

We have crossed the $10,000 mark! Thank you for the huge donations that have been recently made!

Typhoon Yutu has killed 11 in the Philippines already and this will only continue to increase from deathly diseases such as pneumonia, diarrhoea and tuberculosis. With Soap Cycling, we can help to ease the pain! Every dollar that is donated will be employed on the logistic costs to transport soap from Hong Kong to Luzon. Help us share the campaign to anyone that can offer help! #BeASoaperHero

Hello everyone! Thank you so much to our backers! We have already crossed about 10 days and to see funds coming in means a lot to Soap Cycling.

It has been months after Typhoon Mangkhut but before it could recover, Philippines was hit with Typhoon Yutu very recently. Besides cleanup, other emergency services are also essential in helping people get up on their feet again and this is where Soap Cycling comes in. We are trying our very best to alleviate diseases and other hygiene-related issues. #BeASoaperHero
