Could you go for 10 minutes without checking your phone? How about a whole day? If you're in the mood for a challenge then the UNICEF Tap Project is perfect for you. The best part about it is that you will be helping some of the 768 million people around the world without access to clean water.
March 22 is World Water Day, so now is a good a time as any to get involved with the initiative that will see donors fund one day of clean water for a child in need for every 10 minutes you don't touch your phone. So if you're in the mood for a digital detox and want to help a very important cause at the same time, download the app and get ready to leave your phone alone.
