Clean the World

{Thursday's By Tara}
A Thursday ritual. A featured post written by Tara; simple, special, extraordinary
moments in soaping and life.
Natural Garden Soap has just donated 12 lbs of soap to Clean the World! :)

Check out their website at:
Clean the World is a non-profit organization that takes donated soaps and distributes them, along with appropriate educational materials, across the globe. They also deliver to more than 20 homeless shelters, women' shelters, food kitchens and missions with in the USA. Each year more than five million lives are lost to diseases such as acute infections and diseases with the majority of deaths being among children less than five years old. Studies have shown that simple hand washing substantially reduces the spread of these diseases. It is tragic to think that many people die simply because of lack of being clean and not having access to something as simple as soap.....well, we felt like we needed to pitch in and help out. Rather than tossing leftover soap ends or imperfect bars that can’t be sold, we are boxing them up and doing what we can to put soap into their hands.

It warms our little hearts to know that someone, somewhere is using our soap and it's helping all sorts of people, in all sorts of ways.
