The Ice Water/Bucket Challenge has brought so much awareness to ALS, however, the water being wasted made me think of so many that have no water, have no hope, for this simple "luxury" that we all take for granted. Children in some communities around the world have never once, in their entire lives, had the luxury of a glass of ice water to drink, or fresh water to bathe in. I challenge you to give up drinking anything but water for one week, and take what you would have spent on any other beverage, and donate it here instead. I firmly believe that within my circle of friends, we can come up with 1000 dollars to simply provide water to someone who needs it. This is not to take away from those suffering from ALS. This is to instead provide a simple life necessity to those who need it so badly. If you can donate to both causes, please do so.
Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?
Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!
Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.
The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world who suffer needlessly without.
Working with local partners in countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Uganda, we build long lasting water projects that are organized, owned and managed by the communities receiving them.
Together, with our partners we identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. Then we share the whole story with you to inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
