Over 9,000 children will die today! With your help, we can reduce these needless deaths dramatically by donating something as simple as our soap. Clinical studies have shown that the simple hygiene practice of washing one’s hands with bar soap can reduce these deaths by up to 60%.
The HSMG invites our membership, as well as non-members, to join in our support of the Clean the World, Inc . Clean the World (CTW) is a non-profit, charitable organization that recycles soap, shampoo, and lotion discarded by hotels and distributes the recycled products worldwide to people who cannot afford these essential items. It is our pleasure to work with CTW and help to prevent disease throughout the world. HSMG and CTW are extremely grateful to you for any amount of a soap donation or monetary donation.
Here is how it all began. Clean the World Presentation
Together we can make a difference in the lives of people who really need our help. Why not send your soap that didn’t come out so perfectly? You know, the so called “ugly” soaps that are still usable can be donated. Even the old or soap ends are accepted. The soap is rebatched and purified at CTW before being sent overseas. Another way to donate is to couple with others or organize a soap drive.
Just ship your much needed donation to:
Clean The World
Attn. Steve Cooper
4625 Old Winter Garden Rd. #B7
Orlando, Florida 32811
Please enclose a note in your shipment that you are participating in the HSMG Soap Donations Program and let us know when you ship, firstname.lastname@example.org , so we can recognize you for your generosity.
If you choose to do a monetary donation, just click the donate button on their website, www.cleantheworld.org , every $1 donation will recycle two hotel rooms for an entire month. That equates to 40 bars of soap and 40 bottles of shampoo that will not hit our landfills and water systems, but instead supply 5 needy families with a life saving necessity for ONE MONTH.
Shawn Seipler – Executive Director reports
Today in Haiti a terrible tragedy struck. Just ten miles from the most populous area near the city of Port-au-Prince a powerful earthquake devastated the country. The government of Haiti is calling it a catastrophe and reaching out the world for help.
As you know Clean the World has been working to continuously deliver soap to Haiti through the Cap Hatien Health Network and the Evangelical Church of Haiti. We have made many friends and connections throughout the country. We are now hearing terrible stories of tragedy and death from these friends.
We knew the need was great before, now the need is greater than ever. In the coming days and weeks, aid will start to reach Haiti and Clean the World is determined to be there. We have soap ready to go. We need cash donations in order to deliver it to those that need it so badly. Some will deliver medical aid, some will deliver food and water, with your help Clean the World will deliver soap. This soap will be critical in saving lives.
Please go to our website and donate whatever you can. www.cleantheworld.org
Thank you. And pray for our bothers and sisters in Haiti.
Immediate update as of 1/13/10:
We cannot reach any of our friends in Haiti. Pastor Brutus will update us as soon as he can get through. This is a terrible disaster. Haiti does not have California style building codes. The need for aid will be monumental in the coming weeks. Many will focus on food, water and medical attention. Clean the World is focused on soap. Without soap, many will die from preventable illnesses. We have stores of soap ready to go to Haiti. We need your cash donations to get the soap delivered. Please go to www.cleantheworld.org and donate whatever you can. And please pray for the safety of all our Haitian friends. Thank you.
Please consider helping us save the lives of children all over the world! Together, we can make a huge difference in this life saving element that can change history. Any questions, please contact Board of Directors, Public Relations Director, Delores Harris at email@example.com .
