charity : water

February Community Service Spotlight

One in eight people in the world don't have access to clean drinking water. charity : water is a non-profit organization which brings clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of public donations to charity : water goes directly to funding water projects.

Their research states: "By 2050, the world's population is estimated to grow by three billion and 90% of this growth will be in the developing world. Unless sustainable water solutions are scaled fast, regions already stressed for safe water sources will be over capacity. We’re expanding our reach to meet these demands and will not stop until every person has safe water to drink."
