Noodle and Boo Honey Bar soap
Noodle & Boo was founded to meet the specific needs of children. But for millions of children around the world, tending to their most basic needs is a daily struggle without clean water. As a part of their dedication to children’s well being, Noodle & Boo is launching the Raise Your Hand Campaign, a crusade to fund water purification systems and make a difference one village at a time.

  • Approximately 1.8 million children die every year as a result of diseases caused by unclean water and poor sanitation. That means 5,000 children die every day, 208 children die every hour, and more than three children die every minute.
  • Water and sanitation infrastructure helps people take the first essential step towards ending the cycle of poverty and disease.
  • HIV treatment is more effective where clean water and food are available.

The first village that Noodle & Boo will sponsor is Heerrara, a small village with a school of 200 children in Ethiopia. With funds raised through the Raise Your Hand Campaign, Noodle & Boo hopes to institute an effective water purification system in Heerrara and improve the lives of the village’s hundreds of children.

Noodle & Boo created the Believe Honey Bar ($12.50 at Noodle and Boo’s websiteNoodle and Boo - Luxury skincare for sensitive skin) to facilitate world change. Profits from the sale of this bar of soap will go directly to the Raise Your Hand Campaign. By purchasing a single bar of soap, you can meaningfully improve a child’s quality of life.

Love that name, Noodle & Boo! What a wonderful way to help the people in Heerrara.

So many simple things, like clean drinking water, that I take for granted. Anytime I need it, hot or cold. Wow, the disparity in our world is mind blowing.

Thanks so much Jami. I am a big supporter of a charity in my area called the Ouelessebougou Mali Utah Alliance. If you haven’t listened to “Prayer of the Children” by Kurt Bestor, you must.

This is what it’s all about, ultimately. I’m so happy you brought this to our attention. Thank you!
