Last Chance to Make a Tax-Deductible Gift in 2015

Dear Friend:

This has been an incredible year for Clean the World as we joined forces with Global Soap to improve even more lives through an integrated social enterprise.

Thanks to generous partners and supporters like you, our Global Soap & Hygiene Initiative can distribute lifesaving soap and hygiene education to people around the world who otherwise would not have access to it. From orphans and refugees to disaster victims and children living in extreme poverty, your gifts have helped us provide health, hope, and dignity for hundreds of thousands of people in 100 countries.

Though time is running out, there’s still a chance to make a donation this year. Today is the final opportunity to make a tax-deductible gift in 2015, so please click here if you would like to make a donation. Your gift will expand our impact in 2016 by helping us improve even more lives and reduce more waste – one bar of soap at a time. Your gift will improve the hygiene circumstances for families both here at home and around the world. In fact, 92 percent of the money donated to Clean the World goes directly toward funding the mission.

Thanks so much for your support. We look forward to working with you in the exciting year ahead.

Happy New Year!

The Clean the World Team

Clean the World’s Shawn Seipler Honored at 18th Annual Don Quijote Awards

Clean the World founder and CEO Shawn Seipler received a huge honor on Saturday, Dec. 12, when he accepted the Excellence Award at the 18th Annual Don Quijote Awards in Orlando.

The Hispanic Business Initiative Fund of Florida, Inc. (HBIF) and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Orlando (HCCMO) host the awards. They recognize and celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit of individuals who have shown the character of great strength, courage, conviction, shawn_acceptingand determination, just as the beloved character of Spanish literature.

The Don Quijote Awards go to business and professional men and women whose efforts have translated into success, at a ceremony that has become the premier event in Central Florida´s Hispanic community.

Saturday’s gala at Epcot’s World Showcase Pavilion was especially meaningful because it recognized visionaries, dreamers, and business men and women who were willing to take risks to achieve those dreams. As Shawn said before the event, “This nomination honors my Puerto Rican heritage, and I share it with my family members who helped me start Clean the World in a tiny Orlando garage. We had a vision to save lives globally, but no more than potato peelers, grinders, and a few countertop cookers to get going. From that humble start, we created a global hygiene revolution.”

If the nomination was humbling for Shawn – then hearing his name announced as the winner of the Excellence Award was surreal. There to cheer him on were family members, friends, and colleagues who have been part of Clean the World from the beginning.

It was a fantastic night of recognition, and a celebration of manufacturing 30 million bars of recycled soap and providing hygiene education to at-risk people around the world – all in just six years. We want to thank the Hispanic Business Initiative Fund of Florida, Inc. and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Orlando for everything they do to serve the community, and for this meaningful award.
