One company is making a huge difference to combat some of these Third World Problems. Clean The World is an Orlando, FL - based company that's working hard to reduce the number of deaths caused by cholera and diarrheal diseases. It's all in how you wash your hands. Clean The World collects bars of soap to distribute in Third World countries; they also collect scraps of soaps and rebatch them into small bars of soap. I've got a few bags of scraps that are slated for this mission, with big plans on the horizon that I'll share as it gets closer to the time.
Do you want to help this fabulous organization? The biggest help you can give them right now is to text "clean" to 20222 to donate $10. Your money will provide soaps for 35 children for a month.
What are some First World problems you encounter, and how does thinking about very real Third World problems help you put them into perspective?
