In November we are donating bars of soap to people who can’t afford them at the moment. With every Bubble Buddy kit sold at foekjefleur.com or goodtogive.nl, we donate one bar of soap to those in need. So that is 1 Bubble Buddy & Cleaning soap bar for you + 1 soap bar for someone else. Together we wash our hands and prevent the Covid19 virus from spreading!
The soaps will be distributed by Keju Cares, a charity by Keju Kitchen that was found during the first Covid19 lockdown last march. When the Keju restaurant had to close the team came up with an idea; they started cooking meals that were delivered to vulnerable people who couldn’t get out of their homes. Later they also opened a takeaway with a system of shared meals; when you buy a meal you can donate a meal so people in need can get this meal for free.
Now that the crisis is taking longer and longer, more and more people are losing income and basic needs such as food and soap are no longer affordable to some. That’s why Keju Cares keeps on sharing; this Christmas their volunteers will make personalized gift packs. You can donate a bar of soap by purchasing a Bubble Buddy in November to go into these gift packs.
Does this cost extra?
No! We take care of all costs, the price of Bubble Buddy is the same and you’ll receive the complimentary bar of soap as always.
Who pays for the bars of soap then?
When you buy from goodtogive.nl the donation is made by GoodtoGive, when you purchase from foekjefleur.com, Foekje Fleur will pay for this soap. We can not make donations for Bubble Buddies sold in other webshops or stores.
Who are the people that receive the soaps?
Keju Cares has a network of people in need that already come over to pick up free meals, many of these people were independent before the crisis but now have a much harder time to get by. Some of them are undocumented or cannot make use of Voedsel bank for another reason.
Only in November?
Yes, only from 1 to 30 November.
Can I do more?

1. Wash your hands all the time
2. Buy a Bubble Buddy in November
3. Buy more Bubble Buddies as gifts for friends and family
