LIXIL Group Corporation Wednesday, December 12, 2018 3:15PM IST (9:45AM GMT)   A Shower so Good: American Standard Organizes Benefit Sale in Mumbai to Help Underprivileged Children Live Healthier Lives All proceeds from American Standard ‘Shower for Good’ benefit sale to go towards the UNICEF India WASH program for helping children access basic sanitation   Mumbai, Maharashtra, India All proceeds from American Standard ‘Shower for Good’ benefit sale to go towards the UNICEF India WASH program for helping children access basic sanitation.  

This festive season American Standard is giving yet another reason to celebrate. The brand is organizing a benefit sale on Dec 15, 2018 at Imagica Theme Park in Mumbai; where consumers can get hold of their GENIE hand shower, a red dot award-winning product, at a discounted price for only INR 1,200. What ‘s more, 100% proceeds from this sale will be donated to the UNICEF India WASH program.
 
This initiative is a part of the ‘Shower for Good’ campaign where three other countries other than India will simultaneously mount a benefit sale of American Standard GENIE Hand Showers with 100% of proceeds to be donated to the LIXIL-UNICEF ‘Make A Splash’ program.  
 
So while the public and guests at the Imagica Theme Park enjoy the rides, they can also be a part of this great initiative by American Standard. Visitors will be engaged through entertaining games as the benefit sale manned by volunteer student organizations from top universities in the country race to deliver all 1000 GENIE Hand Showers to the sale’s finish line.
 
The water saving GENIE hand showers provide an excellent bathing experience through increased water pressure without increasing the volume of water. Fittingly named Shower for Good, consumers who buy a GENIE Hand Shower will be able to enjoy a great shower experience and at the same time help disadvantaged children live healthier lives through access to basic sanitation. 
 
With your support, the benefits of a great shower can extend not just to you and your family, but to a child whose life may be changed for good. The ‘Shower For Good’ event will help give disadvantaged children access to an appropriate toilet. Toilets are proven to help boost children’s survival rates, make communities healthier and more productive, and even improve a child’s chances of attending school.
 
By 2021, the UNICEF India WASH program will have contributed to global efforts to improve basic sanitation for 250 million people around the world. UNICEF and LIXIL, together with the help of its consumers and customers are improving sanitation around the world, one toilet at a time.
 
As the world’s biggest player in water technology, LIXIL leverages its expertise as it teams up with UNICEF, who works in over 100 countries worldwide to improve access to clean water, basic toilets and good hygiene practices. Through ‘Make A Splash’, the two forces aim to promote the business opportunities available in achieving universal access to basic sanitation, by creating demand for sanitation products like toilets, improving supply of such products, and supporting opportunities for affordable finance.
 
WASH is the collective term for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene. UNICEF’s work in water focuses on the ability for children to access safe water, the quality of the water they can access and the journey they must take to collect it. For sanitation, UNICEF works to ensure access and use of basic toilets and ways to separate human waste from contact with people. UNICEF’s work in hygiene is aimed at nurturing good hygiene practices, especially handwashing with soap. Although it sounds simple, this act is essential to prevent disease and the health of children. All three areas in WASH support and strengthen one another. If one is missing, the others cannot progress.
 
Placing comfort, hygiene and aesthetics at its forefront, the award-winning GENIE Hand Shower boasts better water pressure performance because of an especially designed water channel and 120 micro spray holes that ensure a robust water flow, even under a low pressure. In addition, users can also look forward to a visibly clean shower experience. Sporting a rarely seen translucent shower face, GENIE Hand Shower is also revolutionary in its product design that prompts users to clean the slime and mineral deposits to ensure they are getting clean water for their shower session even after long-time use.
