GIVING AND COMMUNITY
Emlyn founded Solid Soaps for many reasons. One of them is to show up for her community and set an example for her children.
Solid Soaps donates to Stop AAPI Hate, which enables this organization to track and respond to racism and xenophobia facing the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community.
Emlyn volunteers as a mentor for an elementary school child weekly and is active volunteer at her daughter's school.
Solid Soaps is open to in-kind donations for your event. Please email for requests.
Emlyn helps curate markets with her artisan friend, Chris @kaijucutandsew, including the OMG Squee Lunar New Year Festival in Feb 2022 and 2023, the OMG Squee Mooncake Fest in August 2022, and the Stouthaus Holiday Markets in Dec 2021 and 2022.
