When I started doing “Thankful Thursdays”, I thought it would keep me grounded by showing my gratitude for life and everything else. I realized that it gave me something more. The more thankful I was, the more blessings came. The more I realize that I am lucky to be living my life as it is. It’s not perfect … but its also not bad.
I stumbled upon an opportunity to raise awareness on sanitation and good hygiene practices. I never realized that there still a lot of places that do not have proper sanitation and people not having proper access to clean toilets. It’s a “dirty” topic but it is important! Every day, kids and adults are exposed to diseases just because they do not have access to clean toilets. I can not imagine my baby growing in such a place…it really breaks my heart.
So, what can we do to help?
Unilever Foundation and Domestos have partnered with UNICEF to help improve access to basic sanitation through UNICEF’s Community Approaches to Total Sanitation (CATS) program. This program promotes good hygiene practices, raises awareness of the sanitation crises in order to reduce the risks of transmitting diseases. They also help create demands for access to proper toilets and improved sanitation.
Did you know that improved sanitation is deemed a basic human right by the United Nations? I didn’t!! For more information about this program, please click here.
You can participate by buying specially marked Domestos bottles in select countries to UNICEF’s CATS programs You can also spread the word by adding a twibbon on your social networking sites (facebook, twitter, etc) and by sharing this video:
