Host a Hygiene Kit Packing Event

Where do you turn when you need a new bar of soap?

You probably open a bathroom cabinet or reach for a pretty basket on the counter.

Not everyone is that fortunate. Millions of people don’t have access to the basic hygiene supplies required to stay healthy. However, your church, school, fraternal organization or company can help by organizing an event to pack hygiene kits that are distributed to those in need due to poverty, homelessness and natural disasters.

If you are in a non-profit group that works with people in need, you can partner with Clean the World to create kits that directly benefit your organization.

It’s an outstanding opportunity for teambuilding or community outreach. Better yet – it’s EASY because Clean the World provides all the supplies, a starter kit to help you get organized, and a Hygiene Kit Specialist who will ensure a successful event.

Steps to success:

     – Plan a budget.
     – Decide how many kits your group will assemble.
     – Place your order at least four weeks before the event.
     – Create awareness.
     – Host your event.
     – Have fun 

Get started by contacting Rosanna Kingston at rkingston@ctw2.wpstagecoach.com or 407-574-8353 Ext. 114.

Destination: Honduras – And You’re Invited!

Source: World Vision

NOTE: Airfare is not included in the cost of this trip.
Clean the World is planning a four-day soap distribution trip to Honduras in February, and we’re making the trip available to all who are interested in participating in this potentially life-changing experience.


Representatives from Clean the World and interested supporters and friends will take part in the volunteer distribution experience Feb. 20-23, where guests will help distribute 8,000 bars of soap to 1,000 children in Honduran orphanages and villages.

The cost of the adventure is $450 per person (airfare not included), which includes accommodations, ground transportation, activities and three meals per day. 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.

Participants will meet with children at a Honduran orphanage in the surrounding areas of Comayagua, and visit local schools where children often goes days or weeks without even seeing a bar of soap. By mixing and mingling among the residents of remote Honduran villages, you’ll experience how they live and the challenges they face on a daily basis with regard to hygiene and dealing with inadequate sanitation.

The immersion experience should be a real eye-opener for people wishing to bring basic hygiene necessities to children and adults in schools and villages that lack these daily necessities.

Would like to join us? Please contact Rosanna Kingston (rkingston@ctw2.wpstagecoach.com) by January 10 to reserve your place on our soap distribution trip to Honduras. Space is limited and will be secure on a first come, first served basis. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to help save lives with soap.

Global Handwashing Day Success – 15,300 Soap Bars Recycled

Clean the World helped celebrate Global Handwashing Day (Oct. 15) with more than 100 volunteers from the University of Central Florida recycling soap at Clean the World’s facility in downtown Orlando.

The volunteers, part of VolunteerUCF, helped surface-clean hotel soaps as step one in the recycling process, which will ultimately lead to soaps being distributed to local homeless shelters, women’s shelters, missions and individual families in need throughout Central Florida.

The volunteers set a goal for themselves – 10,000 bars of soap in two hours – and they blew it away with passion, tremendous effort and fun.

A total of 15,300 bars of soap were recycled by the end of their volunteer service, enough to provide more than 1,500 children with soap for an entire month. And the experience was rewarding for all involved. Here are some quotes from the volunteers:

– “This is exactly what students need – a chance to grow through community involvement,” says Michael Gibson. “You just have to have the right motivation.”

– “What a great way to spend a Saturday,” says Patricia Hall. “Helping other people.”

– “I really enjoy feeling like I made an impact,” says Aupala Huq.

– “I enjoyed learning about the cause and process,” says Vishan Samaroo.

– “On behalf of the Black Alumni Chapter of the UCF Alumni Association, it was a great privilege working with such an extraordinary organization,” says Lawrence Gardenhire. “Glad we were able to help. Godspeed.”

– “I had a very fun experience cleaning soap and helping a good cause,” says Teneshia Huggins. “I learned something new today, and I’m glad I came.”

Global Handwashing Day support was also received from two key Clean the World partners – PeopleTowels and American Cleaning Institute (ACI). The volunteers all received PeopleTowels, eco-friendly and reusable towels that help promote personal hygiene and prevent landfill waste, and educational materials from ACI were provided to help spread the message about the importance of personal hygiene.
