I am a Force4Good Offers Gifts with Purpose at New Shop

Dec 01, 2015 02:27PM

I am a Force4Good, an organization dedicated to selling handmade, organic and fair trade soaps, personal care items and jewelry crafted by women escaping poverty and domestic violence, has opened a new retail location in the historic Cedar Creek Settlement at N70 W6340 Bridge Road, Room 305, in Cedarburg.

As part of the new community, they will sponsor Festive Fridays, a Cedarburg tradition that runs from 5 to 9 p.m., Fridays on November 20 and 27 and December 4, 11 and 18. Shoppers can enjoy hot cider and cookies while browsing the historic building.

I am a Force4Good was created by Brenda Schubach Kiehnau, who has a background in criminal justice and education. While in Chicago in 2010, shortly before Christmas, Schubach Kiehnau witnessed four homeless shelters close due to lack of funding, thus sending scores of young women and children onto the streets. Driven to help, she began working with homeless survivors of domestic violence to make soap, and the organization has since grown to help women worldwide make and sell fair trade gifts that provide dignity and inspiration.
