BENEFITING: GLOBAL SOAP PROJECT INC
EVENT DATE: Aug 09, 2012
Did you know that over 1.4 million deaths can be prevented each year by hand washing with soap and that sadly, while people are inflicted with life threatening illnesses, our hotel industry is discarding 2.6 million bars of soap daily? On August 9th, HelmsBriscoe and Hilton will partner with the Global Soap Project to help reduce this waste and increase public health. In addition to volunteering our time as "soap re-purposers" in the Global Soap Project warehouse, we have committed to raising funds to support this ongoing project. Financial support for the Global Soap Project is needed for collection and distribution of soap (shipping), machinery needed to manufacture the soap, the warehouse to house it in and the list goes on.
We understand there are thousands of charities competing for your time and resources. We only ask that, for every bar of soap you ever left sitting in a hotel soap dish, you consider donating 25 cents for that bar. For some of you that may only be $2.00 and others it may be $25. Quite simply, your contribution, like ours, is a way of commending the Global Soap Project for having the where-with-all to make use of our garbage in a positive way! Let's support their initiative and save lives by Creating Hope with Soap!
