Hand in Hand is a beauty & lifestyle brand with a social mission: for every product purchased they donate a bar of soap and a month supply of clean water to a child in need.
In 2011, the 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. So they decided to create a household product that could also save lives and Hand in Hand Soap was born!
In 2012 Hand in Hand took their first soap donation trip to Haiti and instantly fell in love with the country. Bill and Courtney wanted to do more for the children they had met. So in 2013, they expanded their product line and launched the clean water program with the opening of our first well that serves 240 families every day!
To date, Hand in Hand has donated 437,000 bars of soap and built or repaired 4 wells that provide thousands of people with clean water.
