Straightaway Health Careers is proud to sponsor a Clean the World event at Impact Nation this year. Help us reach our goal of assembling 500 hygiene kits to send to the Aid of Victims of Domestic Abuse of Orlando during Monday morning’s registration time (9:30-11:30am). We are asking all registrants to spend 5 to 10 minutes with us after they receive their badge to help put together these kits. It is a small time commitment that can help improve the quality of life for victims of domestic violence in Orlando.
Clean the World is a global impact company that partners with the hospitality industry and recycle all the used bar soap and bottled amenities. We keep these used products from ending up in landfills, recycle the used soap into new sanitized bars of soap and re-purpose the bottles into hygiene kits. The soap gets sent all over the world to children and families in need and the hygiene kits are distributed domestically. So far we have distributed 40 million bars of soap and over 1.5 million hygiene kits since our beginning in 2009!
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
One of the ways we raise funds to support our mission is by partnering with groups to assemble hygiene kits as a team building activity. Clean the World is proud to announce Straightaway Impact Nation 2017 will be assembling kits made up of recycled soap and re-purposed amenity bottles (shampoo, conditioner, and lotion) as well as a new washcloth, razor, toothbrush and toothpaste at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando, FL. The final component of the kit is a note card, where each kit builder will write a message to the end recipient. Straightaway Impact Nation 2017 has chosen to donate the hygiene kits to AVDA of Orlando. AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse) promotes violence-free relationships and social change by offering alternative choices to end violence and domestic abuse. AVDA's programs also include an emergency shelter and a transitional housing program for victims of domestic abuse and their children.
