Beloved’s Fundraiser for The Water Project: April 1st-12th
BelovED Community Charter School is taking part in a different kind of fundraiser. Starting April 1st for two weeks, we will take part in a program known as The Water Challenge. We are inviting everyone to join us in this challenge! This fundraiser benefits people in Africa who don’t have access to a sustainable water supply.
The Water Challenge asks participants to forgo all non-water beverages for two weeks and divert that money from personal consumption to a donation to the work of The Water Project. Participants wear a special wristband, drink tap or filtered water instead of spending money on other drinks, and donate what they would have spent.
The Goal? Each participant raises enough to bring clean water to one person; or about $23. Over the past 6 years, those participating in Beloved’s Water Project have raised over $6000!
The Water Project will use the donations to fund the building and repair of wells, sand dams and other water technologies in sub-Saharan countries of Africa where clean and safe water is often scarce. A few weeks after we submit our funds to The Water Project, we will be assigned to a specific project that our funds will support. The students will then be able to follow that community through photos, GPS coordinates, and field reports.
At BelovED, part of our mission is to help others, and this project is a great way to be active global citizens making a real tangible difference in the world. For more information or to make donations directly please visit (and share our page on your social media!)
