Helping AmeriCares, Vietnam Veterans of America, and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles get much needed supplies is as free and simple as clicking over to  This is where Facebook fans of Ton Savon, a leading manufacturer of bath and beauty products from the South of France, can have the company donate a bar of soap to each of these organizations on their behalf.

“Ton Savon is excited to have this opportunity to support three organizations dedicated to making a difference in our world,” notes Dana DeVorzon, CEO of Ton Savon.  “We are empowering Ton Savon’s fans to also help make an impact and affect the lives of others with a single click while building awareness for our Soaps for Hope partners.”

AmeriCares is a nonprofit disaster relief and humanitarian aid organization which provides immediate response to emergency medical needs – and supports long-term humanitarian assistance programs – for all people around the world, irrespective of race, creed or political persuasion.  Soaps donated by Ton Savon will be distributed to survivors of devastating disasters, civil conflict or crushing poverty.  More information is available at

“In times of emergency, when families are forced from their homes to emergency shelters and camps, soap helps prevent the spread of disease and restores a sense of personal dignity,” said AmeriCares Director of Emergency Response Garrett Ingoglia. “Thanks to Ton Savon, we’ll pre-position thousands of bars of soap in our warehouse, where they’ll be ready to ship to disaster survivors around the world and across the U.S.”

Founded in 1978, Vietnam Veterans of America is the only national Vietnam veterans organization congressionally chartered and exclusively dedicated to Vietnam-era veterans and their families.  Soaps donated to V.V.A. will be provided to veterans through V.V.A. partner support centers.  Visit to learn more or to schedule a free pickup at your home of clothing and supply donations.

“We applaud Ton Savon, both for its generous donation of soap and for its efforts to bring attention to the service, sacrifice, and unmet needs of America’s veterans,” said John Rowan, VVA national president.  “Those who answered our nation’s call in defense of our Constitution are richly deserving, and we are grateful to Ton Savon for its leadership in ensuring that our veterans are not forgotten when they return home.”

Shelter is a basic human need and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles strives to achieve its goal of eliminating substandard housing across Greater Los Angeles and around the world by partnering with low-income families and individuals to build decent, sustainable and affordable housing. Soaps donated by Ton Savon will be included in “Welcome Home” baskets for the new partner homeowners, each of whom must invest between 200-500 hours of sweat equity to help build their home and be able to pay back a zero-interest mortgage.

“Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles thanks Ton Savon and its fans for helping us to provide our new partner homeowners with a beautiful basket filled with gifts that will bring them happiness and warmth in their new homes,” said Erin Rank, President & CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles.

Ton Savon has set up a special app on the Soaps for Hope tab of the company Facebook page where fans click to request the three-soap donation on their behalf, help spread the word so others will join in, and learn more about the organizations they are supporting.  Participants are also encouraged to share their Message of Hope for a better world.  The Soaps for Hope promotion will continue while supplies last.  Updates will be posted on the Ton Savon Facebook timeline and tweeted @TonSavon.

Each 8oz bar of French soap donated is 100% natural, 80% organic, and long-lasting.  Ton Savon has formulated many prestige brands sold in boutiques such as Sephora and Anthropologie, as well as high-quality private label and exclusive natural HBC products for market leading natural food stores, grocery, drug, and club chains including Trader Joe’s and Costco.
