Big Pink Farm Soap Giveaway!

November 28th, 2012 by Stephanie O'Dea


This giveaway is now CLOSED. Thank you to all who entered! The winner has been notified via email. have a great day! –steph


Hello! It’s Stephanie — Lisa is working on behind-the-scenes stuff today and I wanted to write this review myself. Thank you to all who keep checking in, it feels really good to be able to give back to those who are so supportive.

Thank you.

This is handmade goat soap, made with love, by my friend Alison and her children. I first met her a good 12 years ago, before I had children. I love Alison, yet I’ve never actually met her or had the opportunity to give her a great big hug.

but she’s wonderful.

and you’d love her, too.

She doesn’t know that I’m hosting this giveaway, but she said a few weeks ago that she is ready to make soap again and that she is “open for business” and taking orders.

I’d like you to order some soap, if you can. It’s $4 a bar, and it’s lovely. It’s been a very hard time for Alison and her family, and if we can help keep her mind busy by making soap, I think we should. Her blog has been updated, and you can read all about her family, by clicking here.

This is the order form for soap. Thank you.


But I still have a giveaway! I’ll randomly select a winner to receive 5 bars of The Big Pink Farm’s lovely goat soap. The winner will be notified by me, and we’ll square away the scent-details. :-) I’ll leave this up until Friday, Dec 7th at 5pm pacific.

have a very happy day! xoxo steph
