Dove CouponsOne of the best things that happened when our family began using coupons, is that we finally had extra money or items to give to people in need.  Before coupons I was barely able to feed us, and then all of a sudden we had so much to give!

While I get tons of requests for coupons or donations that I simply can’t begin to share all of them, the former pediatric oncology nurse in me couldn’t help but share this simple request to see what the Southern Savers community could do to help.

Here’s the email I got:

Hi Jenny,

This is probably a very strange request, but I thought you may have some ideas. I work at the Children’s Hospital in Charleston, SC, and our pediatric cancer patients are in need of unscented Dove soap due to extreme skin sensitivities from their treatment. I always check your website and buy when there are good deals, but I’m not able to nearly meet the demand of the hospital.  Do you have any idea of an avenue I could use to approach couponers to donate some of their super steal deals? Or at least to send Dove coupons our way so that our staff are not spending as much money out of pocket? Unfortunately, Dove does not do any community sponsorships.

Thank you so much for your time!

MUSC Children’s Hospital Volunteer Services

Now, here’s where y’all come in. Do you have any unscented Dove soap lying around? Or some extra coupons you could spare?

There are two coupons in the database that will apply to the Dove Unscented 6 packs:

-$1 off Dove beauty bar, 6 bar pk.+ or body wash, 16 oz+ printable
-.50/1 Dove Beauty Bar, 6 pk. +, RP 7/28

There are also a number of sales this week on Dove Soap (or use this same link to see future sales too).

Send coupons or soap directly to Emily:

Even if you don’t have any soap or coupons to give, I know many of you have specific products that you need to save on. Leave some advice, tips or just a word of encouragement in the comments.

      Emily what a great idea to make this request of Southern Savers fans! From one nurse to another, you’re a great example of how creative we can be when it comes to caring for our patients!

    • Amanda Dodd

      I love this! My husband is a resident at MUSC and I have been dying to help in some way! I am definitely doing this!

    • Kim

      While it’s in Atlanta and not Charleston, SC, my daughter has been fighting leukemia for 2.5 years. Childhood cancer is awful, and I THANK YOU for posting this and for all of you who may send coupons or soap. It’s amazing the difference this soap makes on our children going through treatment! It’s the little things, and I thank you!!!

    • jay

      I posted this to another coupon website too so hopefully you will become overloaded with coupons!

    • meme007

      This is such a wonderful example of how far generosity can go with such simple steps. I am wondering, though, why the hospital doesn’t provide this for their patients. Or, is this for the patients to take home with them between treatments?

      • Emily

        Thank you for your comment :) the hospital does provide soap, but not the particular brand. Staff typically end up buying it and providing it when needed. Kids sometimes develop a skin condition called graft vs. host disease after a bone marrow transplant and Dove unscented is what the dermatologists recommend as the gentlest for this very painful condition. We would love a stash for them to use in the hospital as well as at home since it can be pricy.

    • Jackie

      I will send my coupons you have saved my home. Thanks Jackie Johnson

    • SG

      Would it be okay to send some money along with our coupons to help make the purchases?

    • Crystal

      posted to our group’s page, so hopefully we can send something.

    • Alyssa

      I live in the Irmo area and am going to MUSC’s pediatric cardiac division the end of August, if anyone has soap they want to donate I’d be happy to drop it off when I take mine in a few weeks. Just message me back :)

    • BethMc

      Jenny, thanks for posting this. Off I go to clip Dove coupons!

    • woreout

      I used to be a fedex driver for a company that made Dove products, i sent them a email with link to this page asking if they could donate some product. Hopefully they can help.

      • Emily

        Thank you so much!

      • Emily

        Thank you so much!

    • lacat

      I will check if I have any unscented Dove, I will get some and take it up there, I live in Summerville. Just let us know where to take our donations. I am posting this on FB.

      • Emily

        Thank you so much! If you want to give me a call, we can set up a donation time. We are at MUSC Children’s Hospital. 792-8190.

        • lacat

          Thanks, I was looking for a number!

    • Leslie

      My 8 yr old son is battling brain cancer and this soap makes a big difference!

    • April

      Just sent a shipment from Amazon.com. :) Thanks for posting, Jenny – a great cause! My niece was in the NICU at MUSC 5 years ago. It truly is a wonderful hospital.

    • Dominique Hughes

      Could Ivory soap be used? I have a TON from a sale at Kroger that I would love to donate. I believe it’s unscented.

      • Emily

        For this particular use, they are looking for Dove specifically. We do stock all other toiletries for parents who come in unexpectedly though! Thank you for asking!

    • GUEST

      You should go to all the local churches in the Charleston area and ask them to do a Dove soap drive for the Children’s Hospital. Our church here in the Atlanta area has an ‘item of the month’ that we bring. I’m sure the Churches there would graciously do a drive to support and help out these precious children.

    • Kit

      I never would have used these coupons so my three copies are are all yours.

    • RaelynP

      Sending you two copies and will look for more in my coupon stash before mailing.

    • sherrideluca

      “Couponing for a Cause” is on it! We love to help our community and this is one way that we can do that. Thank you, Jenny, for posting this so we know!

    • Anara

      Hey, I am a NICU nurse and have two children with very sensitive skin. We always recommended Dove sensitive skin to the parents of babies who couldn’t handle baby soap so that’s what I started using 8 years ago. I learned a couple things about Dove that didn’t jump out at me when I used it at the hospital:

      1. Kroger and Wal- Mart both make a generic version of Dove Sensitive Skin that are awesome. Both sell for 100% less than the brand name! Wal-Mart does have a community giving program, most stores have a community liason (I recommend making your request long before the holiday season starts!).

      2. Both the generic and brand name soaps are very thick, and are not designed to rinse off easily like soaps made for baby skin. Dilute the Dove/generic Dove. Saves money and is better on the skin!

      3. Liquid Ivory soap is not a good alternative for Dove/generic Dove. It is very perfumey! My sensitive skin 6 year old is doing great with bar soap Ivory, I can get 3 bars for 35 cents after coupons so the bar soap might be worth exploring.

      Good luck!

      • Anara

        D’oh! I said generic is 100% less – I meant 50%!

    • Ruth

      I found a great deal this past week at Publix. The coupon may have expired. However, if you purchased 10.00 in Dove products you could get 3.00 off the total. I used the 1.00 off coupons and the 3.00 off. Could check into it to make your own Dove sale.

    • Amy Stukes

      Do they want Dove body wash or bar soap?

      • I think just the bar soap. That’s all she mentioned anyway.

    • kimkara

      Hey Jenny I was wondering if you could repost the fedex shipping coupon from a few weeks ago. I was wanting to know if I could use this to ship the soap. Thanks

    • Coupon Smith

      Hopefully it will help I mailed out 4 coupons.

    • Lorena

      Is there site out there (or a page on this wonderful site) that connects people with causes, institutions, charities, volunteers that need coupons for specific items? I would LOVE to pass on my coupons and know they are being used.

    • love_to_coupon_in_sc

      shared on Facebook and will be sending some your way!

    • coupon peg

      Clipped a coupon and had an extra bar of Dove Sensitive in my linen closet. Both will be on their way to Charleston in the morning.

      I think this is a wonderful way to donate and help. I am sending 8 coupons. Thank you for sharing this letter with all of us. To all the nurses a special thank you for all that you do.

    • Sandi

      Surely, if she contacts Dove, they would donate free soap to the hospital and its patients?

      • Emily

        Unfortunately, they will not. To curtail endless donation requests from organizations, Dove chose 2 charities to sponsor and does not take any other requests.

    • chrisena

      Thanks Jenny for posting. I am gathering my woman folk friends to bring in some Dove soap for a good cause. We meet on 8/23 so hopefully a box full of soap will be on its way after that.

    • Regina

      I noticed dove is on sale 5/$5 at Walgreens this week!

    • Guest

      This week at Food Lion, 2 pk Dove bar soap is on sale for $2.99. Also, printing from the MVP coupon kiosk, is a coupon for $2 off 2 pks of Dove bar soap. This makes them $2 each.

    • jaime1013

      Is this still going on? I’d love to be able to donate!
