When you get ready for work each day, you likely don’t give a second thought to the soap or toothpaste you use. But for many communities across the globe, such basic essentials for everyday health are hard to come by. As a member of the 2018 Annual Conference Planning Committee, I am asking for your help in supporting World Vision, the charity that has been chosen to partner with at this year’s annual conference, based upon their international mission of supporting basic hygiene needs for children.
For a donation of just $16, you can purchase a kit that includes essential hygiene items like soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste and more. Onsite at National Harbor, in the Exhibit Hall, attendees and exhibitors will work together to assemble the kits purchased, to be sent to a country in need.
If you are attending and have registered for the conference, you can log in and add a donation if you wish. For those not attending, consider this as a way you can participate with your ALA colleagues from around the world. Use the link below if you want to purchase a kit which will be assembled on-site by conference attendees or simply make a donation by clicking the Make a Donation or Int’l Hygiene Kit button at the bottom left of the screen.
Thank you for your consideration.
