Overture: An Evening at Classen HS Wish Week

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013by Peter

Last Monday, around 8pm I walked into a small coffee shop in Oklahoma City. Most nights “The Bean and Leaf” is a sleepy restaurant tucked between a liquor store and a closed down burger joint, but that night it was positively humming with activity. The place was packed from wall to wall for Classen High […]


From Brownie Points to Well Wishes — Rylie’s Story

Monday, January 14th, 2013by julia

Have you ever felt like you can’t possibly make a difference? Oftentimes we feel powerless to make any lasting impact in the world we live in, but 4th grader Rylie refused to believe that.  She educated others and brought people together with the common goal of raising money to build a well.  Rylie proves that together […]

We can’t help but smile when we see these amazing women from Delta Sigma Theta! Over 100 people participated at the Harford County Alumnae Chapter’s (DST-HCAC) annual Walk On Water 5K this past July, and the pictures tell the story. They know how to have fun while raising money for clean water! Delta Sigma Theta […]


My Heart Will Not Sit Down

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012by Tess Crick

What are you reading this summer? A great spy novel perhaps? A mystery that has you on the edge of your seat, reading long into the night when you should be sleeping? Here at The Water Project we have a reading list.  We challenge each other with concepts from the books we read.  Books on […]


Amanzi Awethu!
An amazing bike journey across Africa

Monday, August 6th, 2012by Peter

In February of this year, Alex Antrobus and Murray Beaumont, two young South Africans, began cycling 10,000km through sub-Saharan Africa to experience what life in rural Africa – and the struggle for fresh water – are really like.  One of their goals is to help raise over $15,000 to support a water project!  Another was […]


Muffin Mondays – Turning Treats into Taps

Monday, October 31st, 2011by Tess Crick

Libby and her Mom Meg have something in common.  They love to bake.  In fact, they even have their own web site where folks in the Hamilton, Ohio area can order freshly baked muffins and cupcakes to be delivered to your door. Check them out here: But what makes Libby so cool is that she […]


Make Something, Learn Something, Love People

Monday, August 15th, 2011by Tess Crick

“Every day we make something, we learn something, and we try to love people.” That’s the goal, every day, for the Lowe family from Abilene, Texas. We met Matt, Amy and their two children, Liam and Mary when they called recently about starting a fundraising page so that Liam, pictured here with Dad, could love people by […]

Faith in Action Overflows to Four Communities Students at Southwest Chicago Christian School in Tinley Park, Illinois have been learning about the lack of clean water available to people throughout the world.   As Principal Terry Huizenga wrote, “After hearing that one out of every six people in the world do not have access to clean […]


The 10 Hour Power Shower

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011by Peter

Strangest fundraiser ever? We may never know… but Kevin Cline and friends sure got our attention with this one.  You simply have to watch!   You may be wondering… Was this a waste of water? Maybe.   But, here’s a stunner.  A 10 hour shower only uses about 1,500 gallons of water.  That’s less than […]


Young. Creative. Inspiring.

Monday, May 23rd, 2011by Peter

What do you think … is four-years-old too young to make a difference for someone living without reliable access to clean water?  If you think so, then we’d have to say … think again! Silver, who lives in Utah, is making a difference – one ‘facebadge’ at a time.  His Dad, Justin, tells us that […]
