    What an awesome cause!! We Americans have so much to be thankful for and regretfully, we forget little things like a hotel bar of soap and what it would mean to others.

      I know! I will never look at a bar of soap the same way. He is such an inspiration.

    What an amazing project. It is sad how we take for granted something that could help others thousands of miles away.

    I love this! It has always seemed so wasteful to me. Thank goodness some of our nations wasteful ways are being used to the benefit of others!

    I had no idea about that project. So amazing! I’m going to print that brochure to have on hand. I hope we can all make a difference for the global soap project!

    What an amazing concept! I wonder if travelers can donate the soap they collect at hotels and don’t use?

      They just use the partially used ones from the hotels. They mix the soap in big batches of the same kind of soap so the pH balance is not destroyed. They need large quantities of the same kind of soap, so families can help out by telling their hotel about the Global Soap Project!

    What a lovely cause (and he sounds so special, his song made me cry)…what a wonderful time! And it’s true, simply washing your hands can SAVE LIVES, it turns out that simple hygienic procedures was one of the biggest strides hospitals ever made in not making people who come in sick get everyone else sick (Once upon a time, a knife used in someone’s surgery was then used for the next person without being sterilized, or even cleaned, because people didn’t know- today we know, but not everyone has the resources to be sterile and hygienic)…Yeah for this cause!

    I never thought about that, but it makes so much sense! Fantastic cause. Truly.

    There are so many things we throw away and take advantage off. I understand the reason as here in the US no one wants to use someone “elses” soap because we have that luxury but how inspiring that just saving the unused soap is helping others.

    Wow, thanks for telling us a new way we can help. I had no idea you could resanitize soap. Interesting.

    What a wonderful program! I love this idea. I didn’t know it was possible to sanitize soap and donate it. So glad to hear this is a possibility!

    This has brought me to tears. It is amazing to think that something we here in the US take for granted is so valuable on other countries across the globe! Thank you so mug for hating this experience.
