After an awesome night at Sutra, Dona and I went to the Global Soap Project this morning. This was the first volunteer opportunity for Project 365 and one that both of us really enjoy, so it was good to be able to go back. When we got there Derreck asked why we hadn't been in a while (after he reacted to Dona's dress and sandals ensemble), and we told him - the project is always full and we miss out on signing up for it. He responded that we could go whenever we wanted to without signing up - this made our day! So we will be going back quite a bit :)
We did some mixing today. The soap is broken down into "spiders" (apparently that's the technical term for it). It then has to be moistened and mixed before it can be put through the machine to make the bars. We spent the morning doing this and were able to get through two huge bags of spiders. It was a lot of work, but with all the chatting, joking around, socializing, and today's wonderful music, we got done pretty quickly.
Congratulations to Derreck and the Global Soap Project for winning
