Changing the world one toilet at a time!

Have you ever thought what it would be like not to have a clean toilet? For many people living in 1st world countries that question wouldn’t even entre into our heads. But think about it for a minute, think about all the people in the world who don’t have access to good basic sanitation. I know most of you never thought you would be thinking about something like this and I was the same until I heard about Domestos, the Unilever Foundation and UNICEF teaming up together to improve basic sanitation for those who do not have it. It’s the little things that really matter to the people in 3rd world countries and it’s about time we began to change things.

Access to basic sanitation is a Basic human right, yet 37% of the world’s population do not have this basic right. With the lack of good sanitation there is increased risk of diseases which may cause death. We take having access to good toilets for granted, it’s just one of the many things that we have. But for people in 3rd world countries having access to go toilets could make the difference to life or death.

UNICEF and domestos have teamed up to help and change this. In a time of economic recession domestos have decided that there is more to life than money and have decided that they will give 5% of its average proceeds received from the sale of the bottles marked especially for this project. Now I know that 5% doesn’t seem like much but this all adds up. This project is taking part in a number of countries including: UK, Ireland, Poland, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates.

This partnership is only one of the projects the Unilever foundation is taking part in to reach their goal of helping more than 1 billion people. Imagine being part of helping to improve the health and well being of over 1 billon people around the world! Imagine how good it would feel knowing that you have helped people who need it most. Imagine the smiles on the children’s faces when they know that they will not die form disease caused by access to poor sanitation. Imagine knowing that you helped these children live a happy life. Giving something that we take for granted for every day. Something simple means so much to these children and all you have to do is buy a bottle of domestos marked especially for this project and you will be helping make a difference.

Give the children a chance to be children and not have to worry about getting sick from using a dirty toilet. We can start making a difference in children’s lives even if it is one toilet at a time. It’s time we pass on the message.... It these children can do it then so can we. Watch this sponsored video and see.
