Lemon Butter Cream for Christmas



Hi everyone! Wyatt and I are launching our new product line, LEMON BUTTER CREAM.  We have been making our classic Coconut Lime Creams since 2011.  This year we have improved our product by adding Fair Trade organic shea butter from Uganda and now adding Organic Argan Oil instead of calendula oil We are happy to say that our creams are still $10 for a 60ml glass jar .

When you buy our creams we all get to help support 2000 farmers and their families in a village in Lira, Uganda. The company my mom buys the shea butter from contributes part of its sales to support local community development: education, training, health care and environmental awareness.  Your support doesn't stop there 10% of each sale goes to our organization, Kids Canada, to support our friends here in Canada and in Uganda.  See the cool projects you help us to support here: www.kidscanada.wordpress.com

Thanks to everyone who has supported our business for the last 4 years.  We hope you love our LEMON BUTTER CREAM as much as we do!

Wyatt and I will be making a fresh batch of creams that will be ready by December 15th  -just in time for Christmas.  We will deliver your orders, already gift wrapped, starting on the weekend of the 19th till the 25th.  Please let us know how many jars you would like to order for yourself and/or for presents!

What The LEMON JAR does to help keep your Lemon Butter Cream fresh 
Homemade skincare products do not last as long as store bought products.  
 
1.     Our ingredients are antimicrobial. We use Fair Trade Organic Shea Butter, Raw Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Argan Oil and Essential Oils of Lemon, Lime and Lavender.
2.     We use glass jars not plastic.
3.     We make small fresh batches twice a year that you should enjoy within a year.

How to keep your LEMON JAR products fresh
1.     Dip into the jars with Dry Clean Fingers.  Keep away from water.
2.     Store in dark cool places or in your fridge to avoid light and heat oxidation.
3.     Your Lemon Butter Cream may melt in warmer temperatures.  If this happens –just mix oils and store in your fridge. 


How to use your Lemon Butter Cream
Use on skin after a bath to moisturize and/or sparingly on hair to protect the ends.
Use on cuts, scrapes and bruises. 
Use as a diaper cream and to massage your little ones after a bath.

6 word memoir.


“Possibilities are endless… why lose hope?!” I chose these 6 words thinking of all of the recent events that I have encountered; and of all of the people who never lost faith in me and my decisions. I have always had strong thoughts and opinions about the world around us, and what could possibly be in it. My brother and I grew up thinking, “why do people have to be so unfair?” So starting around two years ago, my mother, Wyatt and I, took that thought to the next level. Creating an organization where we believe that “No one should look down on others, unless you're there to help them back up.” So I guess I would like to conclude by saying: You should never give up on your hopes and dreams, by considering your life as an unpredictable journey.

Christmas, Donors and other things.

Hey! So.... its Christmas!! I would like to start off by thanking everyone who has been supporting us and this organization for all of these years.  Wyatt's school, Queen Alexandra Middle School, has recently held a bake sale to raise funds for KIDS CANADA and successfully made $208!! So a special thanks to our 2014 grade 6 classes and their amazing teachers, Ms Kady Rose and Ms Ola Danyliuk who organized the day!!!

I would like to announce that we are about to launch a new business line. Lemon Butter Cream. We are selling 60ml for $10, or Shea Butter lip balms, 4$ each or 3 for $10. donating 10% of our profits to kids Canada. Our new creams are 100% natural and organic, with our special touch of essential oils. Our shea butter is produced in Uganda and supports a community in Lira. So be the first one to try it! 

Just to get you guys up to date on what has been going on, we have bought 1 acre of land in Bombo, Uganda. With the help of Karim Wissanji, who is helping us design the lay out of the land, Cigdem Coskun and Toronto Seed Library who helped us a LOT, by donating seeds to our current project of building gardens. Thanks again to Queen Alexandra Middle School for raising funds to help us purchase tools for gardening and building. We are now on our way to building our Uganda Kids Canada Centre!

KIDS CANADA!!


   A quick shout out to Wyatt and his friends at Dundas Junior public school for helping us so much by raising lots of money through their penny drive. Together with the money raised by the children in Uganda themselves, we were able to buy 4 Tiva biosand water filtration systems.

 So about those new friends i was talking about who are from
NEMA Children's Choir-Uganda
who came to Canada. Wow that could be used for a tongue twister. Anyways, we went over to the place that they were staying at and I taught them how to make our special signature flower rings so that they would be able to make some money by selling them while they are here and when they are back in Uganda. I also made marshmallow balls (squares) with them which they loved. Thanks Peter's No Frills for your generous donation. We also took them to Centre Island and we all had the best time. I feel like this organization, (
KIDS CANADA ) is going to be a huge success because of all of the wonderful people who are helping us out.

Thanks Denise Lo for the Pizza and for coming out with us!


 kick starting a micro business with our friends. The funds raised from selling the flower rings will help support their orphanage in Uganda 









 We loved the music and the singing we were surprised with

babysitting

Talk about starting new things, I forgot to mention that a couple of months ago (I think), I took a 7 hour st. john ambulance babysitting course. The  course was so long and they crammed a test in at the end of the day. But it was worth it since I PASSED!!!!! I got my babysitting certificate, so now am able to babysit! Oh Ya!!... now I remember; i took the course in January!

Last Thursday, Wyatt and I got to hang out with 17 kids from Uganda, at Center island!!! It was SO much fun.
And here's the best part, at the end of the day, they had all said that it was the best day of their lives. Which truly made my year! Hope you have a great day! Bye.
