I received sample products to reviewWho doesn't know the Peace sign? It has become a fashion and design icon, appearing on everything from tshirts to notecards to teddy bears' tummies. Peace is a good thing, and pretty much everyone says they want it... but only a few companies actually put their money where their mouth is and do something concrete to promote peace.
Kiss My Face is one of those companies. I love their Peace soaps! They smell heavenly -- from my favorite Lavender Mandarin scent to the new Pomegranate Acai scent that Kiss My Face recently sent me -- and they are simple, gentle castile soaps so I know my kids' sensitive skin won't get irrirated.
But the peace sign is more than just a cool design. For 5 years now, this healthy body care company has partnered with Seeds of Peace to develop leadership skills in young people living in regions of conflict. 10 % of all profits from Kiss My Face's Peace soaps supports Seeds of Peace! To celebrate their 5th year of partnership, Kiss My Face is offering 25% off their Peace Soaps. Also, they have set up a donation matching program -- they will double your donation to Seeds of Peace up to $30,000! It's a win-win for everyone!
It’s a kiss-a-bration! For 5 years now, Kiss My Face has been spreading peace through its partnership with Seeds of Peace, an organization that aims to develop relationships and leadership skills among young people from regions of conflict. Kiss My Face supports Seeds of Peace by donating 10% of all profits from Peace Soap to the organization. To celebrate the 5 year mark, Kiss My Face is offering 25% off all Peace Soaps when purchased online at kissmyface.com, for a limited time. Kissing is one of the best ways to bring about peace – naturally.
Kiss My Face and its Founders, Bob MacLeod and Steve Byckiewicz, are also excited to announce a new opportunity to support youth leadership, peace building and human rights. Kiss My Face is challenging consumers to help them send a total of 10 new “Seeds” (their name for participants) from regions of conflict to the International Camp in Maine in August 2014. For every donation made, Kiss My Face will match the contribution (up to $30,000) and send up to 10 new Seeds to camp this year. Here is the donation link:

Seeds of Peace brings teenagers together from opposite sides of conflict for one of a kind leadership and conflict resolution training. At a camp in Maine, youth who would otherwise be “enemies” instead learn to live and talk with “the other side.” They return to the Middle East, South Asia and communities across America as more compassionate, understanding and more tolerant peace makers. By planting these “seeds of peace” they hope a brighter and more peaceful future will flourish.
