SOURCE: Hilton Worldwide
Q: What has been your personal favorite moment in this partnership?
A: Our favorite moment was when we learned how meaningful our partnership to repurpose soap with the Global Soap Project is to Hilton Worldwide Team Members, some of whom are refugees and have experienced what it means to live without soap. Fatoma Dia, a housekeeper from the Hilton Atlanta shared, “[A bar of soap] is valuable where I come from. It may be hard for people here to understand because it is so easy to wash, everything is here for you, you don't ever think about it. Keep in mind that what you do every day may be the biggest task of the day for someone else.”
And, don’t forget to vote for soap!
