I know that the ALS "Ice Bucket Challenge" has created a lot of awareness for ALS and for the many lives the lack of clean water takes every year. Here is our chance to do something instead of just talk about it. I am asking that you take the "Clothes Hamper Challenge". There are so many stats, such as, 783 million people don't have access to clean water and more than 3.4 million die a year for lack of clean water, but here is the one that really gets me, worldwide, 1 out of every 5 deaths to children under five is due to a water related disease. That means that lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equal to a jumbo jet crashing every 4 hours. It is needless suffering and we can definitely do something about it. Won't you help? Take the challenge: dump a clothes hamper full of clothes over your head, post the video and challenge others so this can really raise awareness and funds, and then donate to thewaterproject.org so we can save lives together.

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.
