FRONT LINE FRIDAY with Caitlin Abshier

It's FRONT LINE FRIDAY! I am excited to introduce you to the founder and soaper of Revive Your Bath, Caitlin Abshier. Caitlin was working her booth at a street festival when I stumbled upon her.

Modern day slavery. Seriously? Didn't we abolish slavery in the 1800s with the Emancipation Proclamation? Some estimate there are 27 million held in slavery today. Others say that number is too low.

End It Now!

End It Movement Do you have big weekend plans? Tonight I will be attending the End It Movement fundraiser put on by some Kennesaw State University students who attended Passion 2013.

Their hope [...]
