This morning, together with a round of Manor Mania order boxes, the mailman collected two extra ones. These two boxes were filled with Mischief Makers, end slices, and various soap scrappy doos. They're headed to an organization in Florida for a very good cause.
Clean the World Foundation, Inc. was founded in February 2009 by two individuals, Shawn Seipler and Paul Till, as a Florida not-for-profit corporation. Through the collection, recycling and distribution of soap and shampoo products discarded by hotels every day, Clean the World is dedicated to preventing millions of deaths caused by acute respiratory infection and diarrheal disease.
We tend to take soap for granted, but those little blocks do a lot, and it's something you really miss when you don't have it. It's hard to believe that in some parts of the world, there's such a serious shortage. It's difficult to really make a difference in the big wide world, but as a soapmaker I feel that this is one small part I can play in getting help to a lot of people.
