BENEFITING: GLOBAL SOAP PROJECT INC
Nearly one-third of all child deaths globally are cause by hygiene-related illnesses
Handwashing with soap is the single most effective way to prevent those deaths.
Hotels throw away millions of partially used bars of soap. In the US alone, hotels discard more than 2.6 million bars daily.
Kudos to Derrick for connecting the dots...
Derrick and his Global Soap Project team have done a fantastic job signing up global hotel chains to provide their soap. Let's support him and the volunteers around the world who turn discarded soap into new bars. They then distribute these life-saving bars to refugees and orphans in needy communities around the world, including my homeland - Swaziland.
