60,000 Soaps for Guatemala

With the Mayan calendar apparently predicting the end of the world in 2012, Clean the World has stepped up production to make this a clean and comfortable year for people close to where that prediction was made.

Several soap distribution trips are planned in the new year and preparations are already underway to bring lifesaving soap to people who need it most.

A February trip to Honduras has already been scheduled and all participants are secured. But two more Clean the World soap distribution trips to Guatemala -- home of the famous Mayan ruins -- are planned in March and April, and the soaps to be distributed have already left their destination bound for Central America.

During the first week of the new year Clean the World packaged more than 60,000 freshly pressed soap bars at its Orlando soap recycling facility for distribution to children and families in Guatemala.

The soaps are on their way and will be awaiting the arrival of Clean the World personnel and invited hotel partners in coming months. The soaps, which originated as soaps collected from Clean the World's more than 1,200 hotel partners throughout North America, will be handed out to individuals in disadvantaged areas of that country. They are intended to provide hygiene relief and comfort for thousands of children and adults who struggle with hygiene issues due to lack of proper sanitation and access to soap.

If you'd like to participate in future soap distribution trips with Clean the World, please contact Rosanna Kingston at rkingston@cleantheworld.org.
