Help provide soap to children in Haiti

May 26, 2015

We just launched a new RoomFunding™ project with Clean the World. Learn more about it below…

A little bit about Clean the World

You may have found yourself wondering what happens to the bars of soap and shampoo bottles that you use once or twice while staying at a hotel. Most of the time they are thrown away and end up in a landfill. That’s where Clean the World comes in. They work with hotels to collect the gently used hygiene products and recycle them. Through their work, they create hygiene kits from these recycled products and give them to people all over the world who do not have access to these types of products.

Why we love this project

Nearly 6,000 children around the world will die from hygiene-related diseases each day…which is nearly one-third of all child deaths. And the single most effective way to prevent those deaths is by handwashing with soap. This project will recycle new bars of soap and give them to children at high risk in Haiti.

If we can get 3,000 room nights for them, then we can fund 30,000 new bars of soap for 1,250 children in Haiti. Those room nights will help provide a 6-month supply of soap and hygiene education to prevent cholera and other deadly infectious diseases.

How you can help

For every room night that actualizes, Hotels for Hope donates $2 to Clean the World’s RoomFunding project…at no cost to you. But they need your help to reach their goal of 3,000 room nights. How do you do that, you ask? There are two simple ways to do this…

  1. Book room nights from your next business trip or a personal stay. Every room night matters and gets them closer to reaching their goal.
  2. Commit your next meeting or event. If your company hosts meetings or conferences, you could support Clean the World in a bigger way. Whether you are organizing a conference, meeting, board retreat, sporting event, festival, or large consumer event…we’ve got your back. Our services and technology will make planning these events much easier.

So what do you say, can you help Clean the World out?

Commit your room nights to help fund the global soap project in Haiti!
