Angie Harmon may have given birth to her third girl, Emery, just five months ago, but a new baby isn’t the only thing keeping her busy. The actress has partnered in a new project with detergent brand Purex, which benefits entrepreneurial women in developing countries through with micro-lending site In celebration of their newest laundry innovation — an economical 3-in-1 product that contains detergent, softener and anti-static in a single sheet that moves with clothes through the entire laundry process — Purex is offering a $1 to give to a mom in need. “You go to,” Angie explains, “and you can pick from a slew of pre-approved women that want to start their own business and get their family out of a poverty situation. You register the number that’s on the back of the box — and you control where the dollar goes!” And she’s become enthralled with the process herself, having helped women all over the world. “I had a lady in South America who was starting a grocery store,” she says. “She needed $130 — that’s it! — to start her own business and to help her children. When you think about how much one dollar can help these women, it’s moving, and that’s what I loved about”

I don’t recommend using this because it caused me to have a really harsh rash on my backside. I know a couple of people also that have used this product and it caused their teenagers to break out also! I have a 2 year old and after what I have encountered I am going to buy something that is less concentrated but still smells good. You can tell by the smell of the sheet that it is very strong in odor and that means it is full of very concentrated laundry detergent. Don’t get me wrong, I love the $1 to to a mother in need but use it from a different Purex product.

A Dedicated Father!!
