Campaign Description

Due to COVID-19 Creative Cycle is operating at a reduced capacity due to project cuts and slow sales from clients. In an effort to raise a profile and push sales, Creative Cycle has launched a campaign between Aleppo Savon of Calgary and the Canadian Red Cross. 25% of proceeds from Aleppo Savon's new Neem Soap will go towards the Canadian Red Cross COVID19 global appeal fund. Ultimately, goals for this campaign include reaching a $10,000 milestone in donations to the Canadian Red Cross. We are currently at $1,000 as of May 5th. In order to reach that goal Creative Cycle is aiding in marketing and promotion of this campaign. On average $3-4 in funds is raised per sale (fluctuations due to shipping, in-store purchases, curbside pickup) go to the Canadian Red Cross. Funds raised will aid in marketing promotion and materials such as: - Social Media sponsored posts - Online features on local news - Promotional Donations of soap to local organizations - Packaging such as branded: poly mailers, stickers, labels, tape

FOURTH-GENERATION SYRIAN REFUGEE BRINGS CENTURIES-OLD ART OF SOAP MAKING TO CALGARY

Aleppo Savon was started by Abdulfatah Sabouni, a fourth generation soap maker. Making soap has been his family business for more than 125 years. Even his last name, Sabouni, means soap maker in Arabic. 

The centuries-old tradition of Aleppo soap making — which uses no chemicals or other additives —involves secret family recipes handed down for generations. The fourth-generation soap maker spent a quarter-century in business in Syria, making renowned Aleppo soap in the product’s namesake city until the Syrian civil war forced Mr. Sabouni and his family to leave Aleppo. They went to Jordan first, where Mr. Sabouni tried to keep his business going, before coming to Canada as government-assisted refugees in January, 2016.

When Sabouni arrived in Calgary his entrepreneurial dreams were never far from his thoughts. He threw himself into learning English, got the ball rolling, and opened Aleppo Savon in 2017 to great success. The business continues to grow, and they have big plans for distribution across Canada and North America.

For Sabouni, making the world-famous Aleppo soap in Calgary is his way of giving back to a city and country that has given him and his family so much. Aleppo Savon products can be found at Aleppo Savon factory & West Edmonton Mall outlet, in addition to 21 Co-op locations in Calgary.
