The Chase Community Giving Grant will be awarded to 200 charities. One charity will receive $250,000. Four others will be awarded $100,000, and the remaining 195 will receive $20,000.
What does this mean for Clean the World? These dollars translate into more recycled soap and more deaths prevented. Nearly 350 tons of soap are thrown away by hotels in the US every day. More than 13,000 lives are lost to diarrhea and pneumonia every day.
$20,000 would provide soap for over 4,000 families of five for one year.
$100,000 would allow us to purchase previously-owned soap equipment to increase our recycling capabilities by 500%.
$250,000 would increase our recycling efforts by 500%, PLUS 20,000 children born today could live to celebrate their third birthday – thanks to hand washing with soap.
