Just Bubbly Announces Monthly "Rescue Adoption"

As many of you know - I am a die hard animal advocate. I rescue, care for and help those who help the unfortunate furkids that find themselves homeless. The poor NYACC kitties and doggies tear at my heart each time I see one who will more than likely die before their time because they have no one to save them. Every night their innocent faces haunt me, I pray for angels or for someone, anyone to please save them. Some are sick and in need of vetting, some are surrendered by their families because they have been evicted from their home, some are there because their human has died and there was no provisions made for them, some are simply labeled as "stray" and others are just abandoned and dumped by the human they thought would always protect them.

What can be done to help these poor sentient beings???? So I thought & thought & decided that Just Bubbly will start a "rescue adoption"-every month we will donate 25% of ALL animal related retail sales to a rescue group. This includes ALL items on our website that have ANY connection to animals! Honey Bear Bubble Bath, Dinosaur Soaps, My Pet Fish are ALL included!!!

Every month we will select from those rescue groups who have expressed interest in being "adopted" and 25% of ALL retail sales will be donated to their rescue. In addition to the 25% we will create a custom soap with the logo for the rescue adopted and donate 20 soaps to them for them to distribute/sell or give as gifts.

Check our Fan Page at Just Bubbly to see who we have selected every month. We will begin with our first rescue in May, 2011.

Just Bubbly is a small, handcrafted bath & body company who DOES NOT test on animals, nor do any of the suppliers we buy from. While our donation may be small it is my hope that it will make a difference in the life of some poor sentient being hoping to live another day.

While our monthy "rescue adoptions" will primarily focus on those rescues who pull animals from the euthanization list at NYACC we will consider any group that is dedicated to saving the lives of those furbabies who have been left at shelters.

It is my hope that this will help save the lives of some of the poor furkids that have found themselves homeless.

If you are a rescue interested in becoming one of our "Adoptees" or if you know of a rescue that will benefit please message me and let me know and you will be added to the list of approved rescue groups. Please feel free to share this note with any rescue who may be interested.

It's been a while........................

Well it has been a while since I have updated the Just Bubbly blog. Things have been busy around here with so many new and exciting happenings to report - mostly good things but one not so good. During January of this year, our best and favorite product tester Julien Collot lost his battle with GvHost disease. Many of you remember my introducing Julien in 2009 as the newest member of the Just Bubbly family. Julien is an amazing boy - he made work fun! He tested all the newest products and reported back to me with his likes and suggestions - he fought cancer and won - only to be taken from us way too early by GvHost disease. Julien is now at peace, playing in heaven and watching us all down here. God Speed Julien - you accomplished so much in your too sort lifetime. For those who want to learn a little more about Julien you can visit the website founded in his honor

January was a busy month for Just Bubbly! We closed up our shop at The Holiday Shops in Bryant Park for the season and moved into wholesale mode three days later at the Philadelphia Gift Show. Business was brisk and buying was good - the weather wreaked havoc again as we awaited the arrival of yet another ice/snow storm. Making their debut at the Philly show were the new Just Bubbly Inspiration Soaps. Perfect for a Serenity gift, friendship area or any section of your shop where inspiration is needed and words can describe! Individually handcrafted from our famous high quality goatmilk soap and lightly scented with a milk & honey fragrance, these are sure to be a wonderful addition to your shop. The words are embedded into the bar of soap and will last for the life of the soap then dissolve. Chose from a wide assortment of our inspriational words or chose your own.
After the Philadelphia show we moved on over to the New York International Gift Show where once again the weather was not our friend! Lots of interesting and anxious to spend buyers flooded the show the first two days - then.....the ice storm came and the buyers left leaving us with tons of followups to make to all those shop owners who "flew" through the show like lightening so they could get home before the storm. the good news is that orders from those buyers started to come in evern before we closed the show! You can look for Just Bubbly Handcrafted Bath & Body Products at many of your favorite retailers across the US!
Well that's all for now - I will try and post more new products and introduce you to the new JB Greek line of licensed sorority soaps and bubble baths!
