This is an awesome event for an important cause.

In the last year and a half we have all learned the importance of handwashing. We know we need to keep our hands under the water for at least 30 seconds (aka two verses of "Happy Birthday") and don't skimp on the soap!

BTW - This is not just a COVID thing. According to the U.N., about 297,000 children under five – more than 800 every day – die annually from diseases due to poor hygiene, poor sanitation, or unsafe drinking water. And did you know food stamps don't cover soap in the U.S? 

On July 15th, a company called Soap Box with be unveiling the World's Biggest Bottle of soap in Time's Square to raise awareness for the importance of hand hygiene. So how big are we talkin'?

  • The 21-foot tall
  • 8.5-foot diameter
  • 2500-pound metal and fiberglass bottle

Picture the regular sized bottle of soap you have in your bathroom and multiply it by 30. Yeah, that's how big it is.

After the unveiling in NYC, this big 'ole bottle of soap will travel to 15 different cities and donate 147,900 personal care products to communities in need along the way. On July 16th the bottle will travel to Westwood, MA and on the 17th it will make it's way to Manchester, NH. Shoppers and community members are invited to take photos, enter a raffle for product giveaways, and assist with assembling hygiene kits that will be donated to children in the foster care system within their local community.
