SHRM Conference Once Again Included Hygiene Kit Event

Like many organizations, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) wants to make a positive community impact when they gather for a conference. And for the second consecutive year, SHRM worked with Clean the World to make that positive impact.

During last month’s SHRM 2014 Annual Conference & Exposition at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, attendees participated in a ONE Project event to assemble hygiene kits for people struggling to meet their family’s basic needs. At last year’s SHRM conference in Chicago, members assembled nearly 3,000 hygiene kits for Children’s Home + Aid, which serves about 40,000 needy children and families throughout Illinois, and the Chicago Help Initiative, which serves meals to the less fortunate on the city’s North Side.

Immediately after the 2013 event, SHRM’s Laura Liles was already looking ahead to this year.

“The project was such a hit,” Liles told Clean the World in July of 2013. “We assembled close to 3,000 kits, and I think we will be able to assemble even more [in 2014]. We definitely want to incorporate another ONE Project build into next year’s annual conference. It actually works out perfectly because we will be in Orlando.”

This year the group assembled 3,500 hygiene kits for needy individuals and families in Central Florida.

SHRM is the world’s largest membership organization devoted to human resource management. Representing more than 275,000 members in over 160 countries, the society is the leading provider of resources to serve the needs of HR professionals and advance the professional practice of human resource management. SHRM has more than 575 affiliated chapters within the United States, and subsidiary offices in China, India and United Arab Emirates.

Laura Schwartz Provided a Sparkling Presence at Las Vegas Event

Laura Schwartz on stage in Las Vegas with Clean the World founder Shawn Seipler.

When we unveiled new soap recycling equipment last week at our Las Vegas operations center, Clean the World board member Laura Schwartz lit up the room with the passion she brought to her role as emcee. Laura’s enthusiasm, charisma and million-dollar smile set the tone for an incredible day.

At live events and during her many TV appearances promoting Clean the World, Laura continually evangelizes the Global Hygiene Revolution. She is a master at what she does, and we are grateful to have her on our team.

Laura worked in the Clinton White House as the Midwest Press Secretary, Director of Television and, ultimately, Director of Events, where she produced the President’s events on the world stage. In her book, “Eat, Drink & Succeed,” and the accompanying lecture series, Laura shares her secrets to success. We feel incredibly fortunate to have her share them with us daily.

Join Clean the World on a Soap Trip to Honduras or Guatemala


Clean the World is planning four-day soap distribution trips to Honduras and Guatemala in May, and you are invited to join us for a potentially life-changing experience.

Friends and supporters will work alongside Clean the World team members to distribute 15,000 bars of soap to 1,500 communities in need in each country. We have openings for seven volunteers on each trip. The experience will likely shed new light on the plight of people struggling to overcome hygiene challenges conditions far different from what we are accustomed to here in the United States.

In Honduras, participants will meet with children at orphanages in areas around the capital city of Tegucigalpa, and visit local schools where children often go days or weeks without seeing a bar of soap. By mixing with the residents, you will get an eye-opening look at how they live and the challenges they face on a daily basis with regard to hygiene and inadequate sanitation.

Travel dates for Honduras are May 19-22, and the Guatemala trip is May 27-30. Registration deadline for both trips is April 11.

Participants on either trip will incur a $1,400 per person administration fee, which includes: round-trip airfare from Orlando or Miami to the destination country, as well as lodging, food, tips, activities, and exit fees in the destination country.

To join us, please contact Rosanna Kingston (rkingston@cleantheworld.org) by April 11. Space is limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to help save lives with soap.

You Are Invited to a Soap Distribution Experience

Clean the World’s mission begins with a hotel housekeeper collecting a discarded bar of soap, and ends with a recycled bar in the hands of a child. You have an opportunity to see that end result first-hand by accompanying us on one of our upcoming soap distribution trips.

The trips provide three- and four-day immersion experiences in communities where soap is in short supply. These are areas where poor hygiene causes daily challenges and high death rates, especially among children younger than five. Clean the World is making these trips available to all who are interested in participating in this potentially life-changing experience.

Representatives from Clean the World and interested supporters will help distribute 10,000 bars of soap to 1,500 children in orphanages, soup kitchens, schools and villages. At least six volunteers are needed to conduct the excursion, which will likely shed new light on the plight of people struggling to overcome hygiene challenges in villages far from our own backyards.

The immersion experience will be a real eye-opener for people who want to bring basic hygiene items to children and adults in schools and villages that lack these necessities.
If you are interested, please contact Rosanna Kingston at volunteers@cleantheworld.org. Space is limited and available on a first come, first served basis. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to help save lives with soap.
