Eco-Soap Bank is one organization that is going above and beyond to transform the lives of families around the world through the power of hygiene and education. I had the privilege to meet some of the Eco-Soap Bank team when I was in Cambodia and see them in action, and I am so proud of how far they've come.

It's been about a week since I've arrived in Siem Reap and I must say my body seems to be accepting this humid, hot climate in October.
