Hello! Thank you for taking the time to check out our Kickstarter! We are raising funds to complete production for our business launch in October.
Who are we? We are the job training program for Foundation House Ministries, a nonprofit in Cleveland, TN. Foundation House equips homeless, pregnant women by providing housing, case management, and trauma-informed care as they become mothers. These women are the hands and lives behind Healing Springs Gifts. Each product supports these young mothers financially as they work to create a stable future for themselves and their children.
Why Healing Springs Gifts? We have seen true healing in the lives of the women in our program, many of whom have experienced unimaginable trauma. Through job training at Healing Springs, they will be equipped to build a stable, lasting future for themselves and their children - physically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually. Our hope is that these products will be a source of comfort and healing in your life, too, as you decide to back us.
What are we selling? We offer personal care products, such as body butter cream, scented sugar scrubs, and soothing lip balm. Our products are all hand-made with natural ingredients and essential oils. Our product developer has been researching the best ingredients and recipes for your skin and well-being since 2012. We are thrilled to share them with you! Our products are top of the line, and we know you'll love them too. We believe that you should feel as beautiful and whole on the outside as you are on the inside – just like the women who create these products for you.
We need your help! We are striving to ensure that these products are at their best, and we believe they are now ready! Help us raise the funding we need to launch Healing Springs Gifts, so that we can give healing to your life and to the lives of women in crisis. Every contribution, big or small, gets us closer to seeing our mission fulfilled. Check out our website, www.healingspringsgifts.com, for future purchases and to stay updated on new products!
Where will the money go? The majority of your money will go to paying and supporting the women in our program. Additionally, it will cover the costs of supplies, which we keep as low as possible. Your money will also go to strengthening and expanding the programming for the women at Foundation House Ministries in order to provide further resources, support, and stability.
Manufacturing timeline? We plan to be in full operation by October. At this time, the women in our program will have completed their training, and we will be ready to purchase more supplies and create more products. While we cannot entirely estimate the shipping timeline depending on backers, we will definitely start sending out packages of products by the beginning of December, in time for Christmas gifts. Here's a visual for our timeline:

Risks and challenges
We are already manufacturing the products for Healing Springs Gifts. By giving to our Kickstarter, you will propel us forward and help us to have a stronger start. Healing Springs gifts is going to launch with or without the Kickstarter, but you backing our project will mean participating in the success
of the women in our program sooner and more holistically. Check out our website at healingspringsgifts.com for more fragrances and offers as we expand!
