Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.

This is the toilet's final week for donations or travel. This Sunday, August 25, the toilet will officially retire. Please help us reach our goal! Our class is learning about water this summer. We are discovering that not everyone has access to clean water, that some people have to carry water from far away to their homes, and not everyone has potties in their homes. We are trying to raise $1,035 to provide clean water to five large families for a year. We made a Tacky Traveling Toilet to raise our funds. Please send our toilet on a trip and help us meet our goal!

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.
