About us

Why sell soaps to help vulnerable children? The answer is simple, I learned their names. This quote really resonates with me. 

“Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. 

But once you do, everything changes” 

-David Platt

You see, I saw their faces, learned their names and held them in my arms. I saw in them my own beloved children and I was completely broken. It was no longer OK with me for them to have no place of safety, no one to speak for them, no one to call them their own. It was no longer an option to pretend I didn’t know that children existed without the love and safety of a family. I had to take action. My life and my home couldn’t accommodate 153 MILLION orphans but I could help those who were helping these vulnerable children. So I naively began Little Red Hen Soap. I never dreamed of all it would entail or how it would grow. We are currently working in Haiti with Children First. I love knowing that my “little” is making a huge difference in their lives of the children they serve. What can you do to help vulnerable children around you?
