Happy Holidays!

Tonight is the first night of Chanukah. Christmas Eve is Wednesday. Some soapmakers are helping to make the holidays a bit brighter for those less fortunate.

Delores Harris is the owner of Daisy May Natural Soap, and leader of the Brooklyn CP Soapmaking Meetup. Delores is working with members of her soapmaking group to donate handmade soaps and bath products to a battered women's shelter.

Soap Queen, Anne-Marie Faiola blogs about her young friend Kyle and his brother Nicolas. Kyle who is seven, has an inoperable brain tumor. Kyle and Nicolas love getting mail and Anne Marie has asked for people to send the boys a Christmas card.

Whether you celebrate Chanukah, Christmas or Kwaanza, may your holidays be filled with love, joy and health.


  1. Thanks for helping to spread the word about Kyle. He really appreciates those cards - especially as his symptoms progress and physical activities become less easy. Reading he can still do =)

    Thank you, thank you!

  2. After reading your post about Kyle, I took a look at his blog. His story especially hit home when I read about him needing to get his shunt valve adjusted after an MRI. My husband also has a programmable shunt! (He has a shunt due to hydrocephalus, also known as water on the brain.) Our friend Michael was the first person in the United States to get a programmable shunt back in 1992. Michael is now 18.

  3. Thanks for your kind words Sue. I have finally figured out how to follow you and comment.
