Hello everyone,
Our names are AnneMarie Bacon and Gracie Meloni, and we are 8th graders at Old Quarry Middle School in Lemont, IL. This is our second year hosting a variety of fundraisers for an amazing organization called The Water Project. The Water Project gives people in south-suburban Africa a clean water source that was previously unavailable to them. If you go to thewaterproject.org, you can see all of their past and current projects. They post updates, pictures, and sometimes videos. We are very passionate about our fundraising, and we will be hosting a few events, including an "Escape The School" event on January 26. The Water Project is important to us because we see it as a way to really show how we take so much in life for granted, such as clean water and sanitation. 2.3 billion people don't have access to those basic needs, and that is a number we are determined to lower. Join us in our efforts to help give new hope, better futures, and better lives to those who will be affected by our Water Project. Thank you, and if you have any questions, you can contact us at [email protected].

Good luck with this project. U.S.A has access to clean water and we often forget that so much of the world does not.

The Water Project is a U.S.-based charitable organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world.

How this works

Dirty water impacts health, education, women, and income. Providing a reliable and safe water source allows communities to thrive.

The Water Project provides access to safe and reliable water across sub-Saharan Africa. Together, our support can end the water crisis and restore hope, one community at a time.

The coolest part? We'll all get to see our impact! Every gift is directly linked to a specific water project and community. We'll receive updates including photos and stories, maps and more!

Lives change when communities gain access to clean water. Let's experience it together. Make a donation to my fundraising campaign today!
