Round Up For Charity

SUPPORTING THE B+ FOUNDATION

Our company is dedicated to not only providing as natural bath products as possible, but also helping families cope with the hardship of a cancer diagnosis.  The diagnosis of cancer in a child can be devastating to a family, so we want to do what we can to support them in their time of need.  Help us in our mission to provide financial and emotional support for these families of children with cancer by participating in our Round Up For Charity Program.  By rounding up your cart total to the nearest dollar, you provide support for these families and also contribute to critical, childhood cancer research.  It only costs a few cents and your donation helps families nationwide.

 

WHAT IS THE B+ FOUNDATION

IT'S NOT A GRADE, IT'S AN ATTITUDE. 

The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation honors the life of Andrew McDonough. Andrew battled leukemia, septic shock and complications of childhood cancer for 167 days before passing away on July 14, 2007, at the age of 14. Andrew’s B+ blood type became his family’s and friends’ motto throughout his fight against childhood cancer — to “Be Positive”.

BE POSITIVE  MISSION

Provide financial assistance to families of children with cancer. B+ has helped thousands of families across the country — financially and emotionally — as they care for their child with cancer. Through The B+ Family Assistance Program, The B+ Foundation is one of the largest providers of financial assistance to families of kids with cancer in the United States.
Fund research to find cures for childhood cancers and advancements in treatment protocols. The B+ Foundation has provided research grants to institutions such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (TN), Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (MA), Seattle Children’s Hospital (WA), Children’s Oncology Group, and the Nemours Center for Childhood Cancer Research (DE). With your support, there are children and teens alive today due to research funded in part by The B+ Foundation.  
Increase awareness of childhood cancer and advocate for increased research funds. Sadly, less than 4% of the federal government’s cancer research budget is used for childhood cancer research. The B+ Foundation helped create the Coalition Against Childhood Cancer and is honored to be a member of the Alliance for Childhood Cancer to advocate for more government funds.  
Spread the B+ message!  “It’s not a grade. It’s an attitude.” By spreading the B+ — Be Positive — message through outreach efforts and talks, we share the lessons that Andrew taught us: have fun, set goals and try your best, show affection, and be comfortable with yourself. We all need to “Live Like Andrew.”

Helping the homeless

HELPING THE HOMELESS

In addition to our Round Up For Charity Program, Hickory Ridge Soaps gives 100's of guest soaps to the homeless every year.  These soaps are usually placed in care packages that are provided to those who are living on the street and do not have a home.  Providing people, old and young alike with the means to keep clean is very important to us.  By staying clean, we help individuals stay healthy and stop the spread of disease or illness.  If you would like to find out how you can help, feel free to contact us.  Or you can use this directory to find a shelter near you: Homeless Shelter Directory.
