The Christian season of Lent is upon us. A traditional way of entering this season is to give up something that can help bring to mind the sacrifice Jesus made for you. My sacrifice this year is to give up all liquids except for water. I do enjoy a glass of wine, and of course I work at a coffee shop, but during the 40 days of lent I will be abstaining from these pleasures. All the money I would have spent on alcohol, coffee, tea, etc., I will donate to this wonderful cause. I will drink only water in order to raise more awareness to the availability of clean water around the world. Help me out!
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.
