Susan C. of Columbia, Maryland thinks a lot about Juvenile Diabetes, as two of her siblings have it. She has always appreciated the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), having participated in five of their DC area walks.
At the same time, she has seen all the different clever bath products advertised on TV and displayed at the mall. So she thought about making her own to contribute to the diabetes research cause, and asked Start a Snowball for help.
With help from friends & family and an array of ingredients on the kitchen table she made the bath bombs for diabetes from a recipe off the web, as shown below, and sold them door-to-door in her neighborhood.
With careful budgeting she cleared a profit and with excitement sent a check to the JDRF in August, 2014.
Susan said “I was so happy to contribute to the JDRF and it was fun making the different kinds of bath bombs– different colors and scents. People who bought them really liked them, and none of this would have happened without the grant from Start a Snowball.”
