According to reports, hotel guests leave behind millions of half-used shampoo bottles and soaps every day.  Hotels throw the bottles out, and they wind up in landfills which is bad for the environment.  One organization sterilizes those half-used bottles and soaps and gets them to the poorest people in the world who don’t have access to proper sanitation.  Clean the World takes leftover soap from hotels, sanitizes them and then distributes them to people in need. They are currently working with more than 300 hotels and since 2009, they've distributed more than 40-million bars of soap to families across 115 countries. What’s more, an estimated six-million empty soaps and toiletries didn’t wind up in landfills.

The mystery is yours to solve. Who ate the cheesecake?  USAopoly thinks we need a “Golden Girls” version of Clue and they may be right. So move over Colonel Mustard, because it may have been Sophia on the lanai with her purs. Or was it Dorothy in the kitchen with a wicker chair? It could have been Rose, or even Blanche.  The game creators thought of everything down to Sophia’s fluffy robe. We won’t tell… go ahead and get your inner “GG” on. And thank you creator…thank you for being a friend!
