Many of us may not realize this, but being able to have access to proper hygiene is a luxury. In India alone over 70 million people have never used soap. Globally, an estimated 2,000 children under the age of five die every day from diarrhoeal diseases and of these some 1,800 deaths are linked to water, sanitation and hygiene. This lack of access to proper hygiene has lead to over 18 million deaths worldwide. Preventable hygiene related deaths should just not be occurring in 2015.
Devastating facts like these have inspired us to do whatever it is possible to make a small change for a very big problem.
In effort to make a difference we donate 1% of all proceeds to the prevention and awareness of hygiene related diseases.
These innocent children do not have to suffer from these numbing statistics. These diseases can be prevented through regular hand-washing with soap. Soap is the most effective way to prevent childhood death. Even more beneficial and cheaper than vaccines, medications or clean water initiatives alone.
Every month we find a new local shelter or organization that is need of donations. If you or someone you know would like to inform us of a place to donate next, please send us any information at firstname.lastname@example.org
