Laura Connects Cvent and Clean the World to Save Lives

Chicago, ILLaura Schwartz, Professional Emcee and Keynote Speaker recently connected two of her outstanding partners, Cvent and Clean the World to save lives as we face COVID-19 with the “Soap Saves Lives in a Box” Project.

Laura and Cvent

Laura has worked with Cvent, the world’s leading event technology company for 3 years serving as their Emcee for the preeminent Elite Meetings Alliance series which showcases 3 locations and programs a year for top planners in the industry as well as serving as a keynote for their legendary Cvent Connect in Las Vegas and Cvent Connect Europe in London.

 

Laura and Clean the World

Since 2009, this global health organization has partnered with over 8,000 hotels, airlines and corporations to reduce waste and address inequalities in the access of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) around the world. Having diverted over 20 million pounds of waste and distributed more than 52 million bars of soap to people in need throughout more than 127 counties including America, Clean the World has contributed to the 60 percent reduction in the morbidity rate of hygiene-related illnesses in children under the age of five.

 

The Soap Saves Lives in a Box Project Lifts Off with Cvent

I always emphasize that you never know when the next conversation could be the conversation to change your life or more importantly that of someone else. That conversation for me just happened with one of my favorite Cvent-ers, Lauren Allison. 

Lauren reached out to catch up early on in the COVID crisis and mentioned that Cvent was actively looking for ways to empower the meetings and events industry during this difficult time.  As an active member of the board of Clean the World, I was thrilled to share that we were evolving our hygiene kit program from on-site at meetings and events (for now) to creating a Soap Saves Lives Box which can be shipped to employees, families, friends, football teams and more.

This Soap Saves Lives Box includes everything needed to build either 50 or 100 hygiene kits right from the comfort of one’s home and then distributed to local communities affected by COVID-19.  Our mantra has always been “Soap Saves Lives” and now more than ever, it is proven as the best defense against the spread of COVID-19. 

Cvent has partnered with us many times building kits at their Connects and events throughout the year and after that “catch up call” Lauren immediately went into action along with the Cvent tech team partnering with us to create the registration page and all the tech behind it for our new Soap Saves Lives Box program.                                                                       – Laura Schwartz

 

 

About Clean the World

Since 2009, this global health organization has partnered with over 8,000 hotels, airlines and corporations to reduce waste and address inequalities in the access of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) around the world. As part of their programming, Clean the World takes in hygiene amenities that would otherwise be discarded by the hospitality industry, preventing these items from ending up in landfills. Hygiene supplies are then recycled and used in WASH Education programs around the world.

As one of 23 members in the UN Global WASH Cluster, Clean the World’s mission and programming closely align with the Sustainable Development Goals. More specifically, the various programming focuses on providing resources and education on water, sanitation and hygiene. Having diverted over 20 million pounds of waste and distributed more than 52 million bars of soap to people in need throughout more than 127 counties including America, Clean the World has contributed to the 60 percent reduction in the morbidity rate of hygiene-related illnesses in children under the age of five.
