After volunteering for a while with Clean the World, I decided to join them when they did a distribution trip in Guatemala in April of 2015. They partner with an on the ground non-profit on their distribution trips, and this time it was Children's International. Clean the World is impressive in that they have designed a system of keeping partially used hotel soaps out of our landfills, and at the same time using that soap once sanitized and recycled into new bars, to help indigent people in very poor areas throughout the world. Using creativity, they teach young people about the importance of proper hand washing and distribute soap to them so the practice is kept up. It is a small, yet very impressive model.

I've had the pleasure of volunteering at Clean the World in Orlando for the past two years. The staff I've interacted with have all been professional and enthusiastic about their cause. The help they require from volunteers is easy and fun to provide, and you always leave feeling like you've helped make a difference. I would highly recommend this organization to anyone looking to contribute.
