Hand in Hand started with one bar of soap and a simple mission: Buy a bar. Give a bar.
In 2011, founders Bill Glaab and Courtney Apple stumbled upon an article stating 5 million children die each year from water related illnesses. After some research, they learned that 45% of these deaths could be prevented with simple hand washing alone. It was then they decided to create a household product that could also save lives and Hand in Hand Soap was born! For Courtney and Bill, it was also equally important to create products crafted with natural ingredients that are good for people and the environment. Hand in Hand specializes in vegan, cruelty free and palm oil free essentials for a clean life + clean conscience.
Partnering with the right non-profit partner has proven to be key for Hand in Hand's success. The world-wide child advocacy group, My Neighbor's Children, who has been working in Haiti for the past 25 years, understands where the need is greatest in Haitian communities. With this partnership,100% of Hand in Hand's donations have gone to children in Haiti.
Hand in Hand also saw the need of providing clean water in these communities to further disease prevention. In 2013, they launched a clean water program with the opening of their first well in Onaville, Haiti.
To date, Hand in Hand has donated over 1 Million bars of soap + built or repaired 4 wells that provide thousands of people with clean water.
