Science in Service: Get Your Hands Clean With The Global Soap Project
Each year an estimated 2.4 million children die from sanitation-related illnesses. The Global Soap Project is working to prevent those deaths and improve global health by recycling used hotel soap and turning it into new bars that are distributed to vulnerable populations around the world. Please join Josh Gough for a 2-hour volunteer shift to help out with this important effort. He has reserved 18 spots for us, so RSVP soon if you'd like to participate.
