DAILY NEWS PROJECT X CHARITY: WATER
In collaboration with Charity: Water, a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations, we launched a campaign with hopes of raising $2,500. This can bring 125 people clean water.
WHY CHARITY: WATER?
Most of us have never really been thirsty. We've never had to leave our houses and walk five miles to fetch water. We simply turn on the tap, and water comes out. Clean. Yet there are 800 million people on the planet who don't have clean water. It's hard to imagine what 800 million people looks like really, but one in nine might be easier. One in nine people in our world doesn't have access to the most basic of human needs. Charity: Water isn't offering grand solutions and billion dollar schemes, but instead, simple things that work. Things like freshwater wells, rainwater catchments and sand filters.
