Our mission is simple:
1) Make a product that is superior in the marketplace and can stand on its own.
2) Use the money from those sales to support mothers in need.
We wanted to create a better bath bomb that people would love, while also filling a societal gap. Our founder, Heather Roberts, had her own struggles as a mother and, as she talked to others, she found that all-too-often, they too had unexpected things happen in their lives, stressful things that can break anyone in an already-tenuous position. A mother that gets left with three children suddenly, a mom that needs to support her mother's medical expenses while also caring for her own children, a mother with a long-term illness that doesn't quite qualify for disability... There was clearly a need, and Heather decided that this product -- the very product that gave her both relief and hope -- could be used to help those who fell into that gap.
You see, we know that moms support other moms, but it's not always easy to ask your fellow moms for help. We hope that our giving organization, MomBomb.org, will ease the burdens of those struggling so that mothers don't have to continue relying on their same spheres of influence. We've been through that ask-cringe-repeat cycle, and we want to help.
There are countless charitable organizations that state how much they raise, but rarely do we hear what was done with the money raised. MomBomb.org wants to change that. We are completely transparent, and allow our fans to see not only how we have helped people, but also where we have helped them and how it made a difference in their lives. We encourage you to check our giving organization page for updates and news... And when you're feeling the stress, or just want to appreciate how lucky you are, drop a bomb in the tub and let the day melt away while knowing that you're helping another mom!
OUR FOUNDER (or MOAB)
What is a MOAB? It’s a military term used for Mother Of All Bombs.
We thought it was appropriate because we are a military family. Kevin (the guy referred to in the story on the page OUR STORY) is retired Coast Guard, and when thinking of all of the exciting things that go into building a business, this acronym came up. After a few belly laughs, it stuck. So, let me introduce myself. Hi! I’m Heather Roberts, the mother of all bombs. I think I’ll try that at cocktail parties and see what happens.
But really, this business was born because I was suffering. Getting struck down with an illness out of the blue was life-altering in so many ways. I couldn’t do the things that I would normally do every day (for example, work on the computer or have a conversation with someone!), so I started making bath bombs. The essential oils were soothing and provided relief, and the task itself quickly proved itself to be therapeutic. I started shopping online to see what other bath bombs were out there, and felt like I could build a better bomb (need to be careful where I say that). I wanted to create bath bombs that were more luxurious than the others; superior scents with higher-quality ingredients that would leave bathers like myself with the relaxing sensation that they so desperately need… it was also important to me that they be made in the USA (many come from China). So build a better bomb we did! We took the base product, which was made with high-quality essential oils, and added organic Argan oil that locks in moisture and helps prevent aging. The more we made, the more we realized we could create baths worth savoring again!
Once the formula was set, I just needed to figure out how I could use the money I made from this endeavor to help others…and that’s where MomBomb.org comes in. I invite you to check it out. You see, when you give someone Mom Bombs, you not only help them, but also many other moms at the same time. It's the gift that gives twice!
So come join us, and jump in the tub with Mom Bomb! And don't forget, in this case, self-care means helping
you, the loved ones who depend on you, and other, anonymous mothers in need.
We allow our beneficiaries to choose the service that would most help them in their time of need.
Each may choose from one of four options (each valued at $500)
Our goal is to help anyone raising a family who has had a major catastrophic event. We feel there is a societal gap for heads of households who fall ill unexpectedly; have to suddenly deal with an ailing parent or child; are left by a partner suddenly and raising children. There are many circumstances where we will get involved and help. Our mission is to serve as many people as possible through the donations made by our parent company, Mom Bomb, and contributions from generous donors.
