Changing the Statistics on Clean Water

charity:water: providing water to those in need

Feb 22, 2013

One in nine people in the world do not have access to clean drinking water. As shocking as this may sound, the good folks at charity:water are looking to change this reality. 100% of the nonprofit’s public donations go directly to providing clean and safe water to people in developing countries. Answering this basic human need, charity:water offers a lot of opportunities for anyone to get involved, from volunteering to fundraising. One creative way to raise funds is to pledge your birthday, a campaign in which individuals decide that instead of receiving gifts, friends and family are encouraged to donate to charity:water. Funders can see where their donations go as charity:water prepares a Project Detail Report that includes the exact location of the funded water project via Google Maps in addition to photos and information about the recipient community.
Bit by bit, charity:water is working hard to change the statistics – ensuring that one day, everyone has access to clean drinking water. [Source: charity:water]
