Change The World With Us (+ A GIVEAWAY!)

Hello, friend! We hope the New Year is treating you well so far. In case you missed it on our Instagram (Be sure you follow @anniedemm for updates!), we have ONE MORE SURPRISE for you. 

Change the World With Us + A Giveaway // The Free & Wild Blog

We are tired of the hatred, passiveness, violence, apathy, and negativity we saw in our world in 2016. We know there is a TON of good in the world, and we want to bring that out in not only ourselves, but everyone else!

So, each month, we are challenging ourselves and the world to a Random Acts of Kindness Challenge. We'll post about it on our Instagram with all the details on the first day of each month. It will be easy and make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. We want to spark goodness in each and every one of our followers because we know there is good in the world that needs to be shared. 

THIS MONTH'S CHALLENGE /// Give a random gift to someone. Not a gift for a birthday or special occassion-- totally random. Bonus: Send it anonymously. 

If you choose to participate, leave us a comment and tell us all about it. Be sure to start using the hashtag #itsfreeandwild so we can create a community on Instagram where we celebrate simple, natural living and doing good. 

But that's not all. Sometime during each month this year, we are also going to be hosting a giveaway for a brand or company that we believe in. Here, you're going to find companies and brands that DO GOOD, brands that give back, companies that are compassionate. We want to support and give as much exposure to these companies as possible...again, because we want to spark goodness in the world. 

This month, we are highlighting Hand in Hand Soap. 

We honestly could not be more in love with this company. It embodies everything we believe in. Hand in Hand Soap sells soaps, bath salts, candles, lotions and scrubs. The idea is simple: Buy a bar. Give a bar. 

After learning that 5 million children die each year from water related illnesses and 45% of these diseases could be prevented with hand washing alone, Hand in Hand Soap was born. 100% of their donations go to the children of Haiti and let me tell you...they're doing big things there. They have donated 350,000 bars of soap. They've built or repaired over 4 wells that help thousands of people by providing clean water. 

But they don't stop there. All their products are made in the USA. They don't use any Palm Oil, which is currently destroying our environment. Their ingredients are all natural and sourced ethically and environmentally friendly. Their products are vegan and cruelty-free. Plus, their products are amazing. They smell great and come in the cutest packaging! 

We would love for you to snag this adorable prize pack with Sea Salt soap and lip balm. There are a few ways to enter below! The giveaway starts today and will end Sunday January 15th at 10 PM. We'll announce the winner on January 16th, email you for your information and send out your prize on Tuesday! 

**Only open to U.S. Residents at this time. We hope this changes soon! 

Best of luck!
