It's been a rough year for all of us, but Christmas is just around the corner and CMM has come up with an idea to help soothe things over and restore some of the good things in life. We’re pleased to be collaborating with It All Makes Scents to sell beautiful bars of soap as a fundraiser for our new housing community in Richmond, and we would like to invite you to purchase some bars for Christmas.

These make the perfect gifts (for even the fussiest of family members!) and have the added feel-good bonus of supporting a worthy cause at the same time! As part of the launch, we’re offering BIG discounts for orders of multiple bars:

1 for $7.00 2 for $13.00 3 for $18.00 4 for $22.00 5 for $25.00 6 for $27.00

It All Makes Scents is a local manufacturer of handmade bath, body and home products. The business is operated by Aratupu Preschool & Whānau Hub parent Latara, who uses only skin-loving butters and essential oils in her very special soaps. Check out her work here - facebook.com/itallmakesscentsnz

These bars of temptation will delight your senses and pamper your skin. We are offering a selection of six fragrances, including one masculine scent. You can buy a single bar or multiples at a discounted price. Each bar is beautifully presented with a custom imprint and label, and shrink-wrapped to preserve their fragrance and with hygiene considerations in mind.

All proceeds from this fundraiser go towards the cost of purchasing and installing playground equipment at the new housing community. Support a CMM project and a CMM whānau at the same time–it really does make sense!

These soap bars are custom-made for CMM and we are selling them on a pre-order basis at www.mmsi.org.nz/soapforhope.

To preserve their nourishing qualities and scent as Christmas gifts, manufacturing commenced at the end of October, with orders available for collection/delivery (bulk orders only) from Monday 30 November. Payment is cash or cheque made out to Christchurch Methodist Mission. Postage and packaging is at customer's expense.
