Nov, 2017 | Another check was sent to Officer Down Memorial Page. Our donation is from the sale of 16 bars of “Blue Line” series bars. Thank you to those who have supported the cause by purchasing these soaps. For every “Blue Line” bar purchased I donate $3 to ODMP. More batches will be made in the coming weeks.

The holiday season is fast-approaching. I have been trying to catch up making products, after a busy fall season of events and benefits.
On November 25th, Simplí will take part in a Holiday Bazaar from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Okra’s Bistro in Gainesville, VA (in the Virginia Oaks club house). This is Small Business Saturday, so if you’re local, come out and support small businesses and pick up some great gifts for teachers, babysitters, colleagues, friends and family! More info. can be found HERE.
September has been a crazy, busy month. Simplí has taken part in a few benefits, two of which were to help out victims of hurricanes Harvey and Irma. We also had a booth and vendor space for Barktoberfest, shown below (fundraising event for Friends of Homeless Animals).
On Sept. 30, Simplí is proud to be a Silver Sponsor for the 2nd annual “For Those Who Wear the Blue—We Salute You” event, which takes place at Tin Cannon Brewing Company in Gainesville, VA from 2-6pm and will offer craft beers, Virginia wines, food trucks, live music, and raffle items. Proceeds go to the Capital Area Law Enforcement Foundation, Inc, which is an organization that helps local officers seriously injured in the line of duty. More info. and ticket info. can be found HERE.
Simplí has secured a vendor spot for Barktoberfest on Sept. 23, 2017 just outside of Leesburg, VA, at the Loudoun County Fairgrounds. This annual event is sponsored by the non-profit, no-kill shelter Friends of Homeless Animals; funds raised helps their rescue efforts and the care and placement of abandoned, abused and rescued dogs and cats to find their forever homes.
I will be “unleashing” a few batches of dog soap bars at this event. For those of you in the NOVA area, it’s a great event, with live music, food trucks, vendors, kids’ activities and Virginia craft beer and wine for sale in a beautiful outdoor venue.

Simplí has been invited to be a vendor at the 6th Annual Officer Down Memorial Ride on April 22, 2017 in Haymarket, VA. This is a poker run which raises funds and awareness for ODMP, a 501(c)3 organization. I have made two batches of soap for the event. Blue Line: Tuscan (olive mint) and Blue Line: Fresh (lemon mint). For every “Blue Line” bar purchased I will donate $3 to ODMP. Available just prior to the event (reserve yours now!).

A writer for Haymarket Lifestyle magazine heard about Simplí! Check out pages 28 and 30. Mentions how Simplí uses spent grains in beer soap (on p. 30) and the impact of beer, wine and distilled spirits on Virginia agriculture. Yay!
