“Right now, almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water. That’s one in eight of us.”
charity: water is an incredible non-profit organization. Their tireless efforts to bring a source of clean water to developing areas all over the world are truly infinitely inspiring to me and everyone involved with them.
One thing I love about them is that 100% of your donation goes directly to serve the people you want it to serve, as the group’s administrative costs are covered by other private donors.
I also love that they do great work in my beloved Haiti, where clear water is like gold.
charity: water asserts that $20 can give one person clean water for 20 years.
I love their gift section. For those giftee’s that don’t like a printed certificate or photo of what you have done to honor them, charity: water has bracelets, certificates, and DVDs explaining what they do and where the money went.
Giving the gift of water- something that so many of us take for granted- is a wonderful gift for absolutely any friend.
