Welcome to The Dirty Water Challenge. It's simple. To raise awareness for the 3.4 million people who die each year due to contaminated water, we challenge you to drink an entire glass of questionable water, say, from the dog dish or a toddler's sippy cup OR donate $46 to The Water Project.
The goal of $1000 seemed impossible to reach at first, but some wonderful people joined forces, and we exceeded the goal in just a week!! We found that people care and want to help, so we are going to keep raising past our goal for a while! How much can we exceed our own expectations? Can we raise $10,000 and fund an entire water project? How many lives can we change? How many lives can we save?!
Please help us keep up momentum by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter.
p.s. Please do not drink contaminated water!

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.
