fighting blindness

Hi, my name is Veronica Portillo. I was actually wondering if you guys could help me with something. I'm trying to raise money for a foundation that is trying to find a cure for blindness. You see, my brother suffers from a disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa, it is a genetic disease that overtime will diminish his eye sight completely (I have 2 uncles and a cousin with it as well) and my family seems to have the rarest form of the disease. I used to do projects to help raise money for the foundation in high school but I really wanted to do something big. I was wondering, if possible, that we could make a soap and then whatever profits come from it a certain percentage would go to the charity and the rest to you. Here is the link to the foundation that I am trying to raise money for in case you wanted a little bit more information (http://www.blindness.org). I love your company and have purchased things from you guys before and honestly have nothing but great things to say about your products. I'd love to get your help if you're willing. I'd really appreciate it. Thank you so much for your time and keep up the great work!
