Actress Mariana Klaveno celebrated a birthday this week. But that is just one of the accomplishments that seem to be piling up recently for the Hollywood starlet.
In just a few months, Klaveno has gone from a critically acclaimed and fan-favorite role as Lorena on HBO’s “True Blood” series, to a new role in the white-hot Showtime series, “Dexter.” A TNT movie, “Innocent”, is scheduled for broadcast Nov. 29 and, yes, she’s also getting married soon.
In between all that, though, is something Klaveno truly treasures – her role as celebrity spokesperson for Clean the World. She will be presenting at the Inaugural Clean the World and will have an opportunity to meet with the hospitality industry professionals who are helping Clean the World.
“I had a chance while filming ‘Innocent’ in Vancouver to visit the Clean the World recycling operations center,” Klaveno says. “I spent some time with the women from Mission Possible who work there, heard their stories, and really connected with them while we were all scraping soaps. It was a very rewarding experience.”
Klaveno has recorded public service announcements for Clean the World, such as this one promoting the Text 2 Donate fundraising option, and another to promote the Gala. Her visibility as a spokesperson for Clean the World helps bring attention to the mission of recycling soap and saving lives.
“It’s such a simple thing, isn’t it?” she asks. “Yet when people really hear the numbers of children who die from disease because of lack of soap, it’s heartbreaking. Especially when you consider all the soap that is thrown away in the hospitality industry each day. I’m proud of the Clean the World partners who have joined the global hygiene revolution to save lives with soap, and look forward to meeting many at the Gala. Thanks for helping Clean the World.”
