Water 4others

H20 Challenge

Drink water to give water. Watch this video (2:37), created by one of our partners, to see how this campaign works!

Right now, 663 million people lack access to clean drinking water. They're drinking from polluted lakes and streams. 1,000 children die every day from water-related illnesses. They're dying for something we can get from our kitchen sinks!

HERE'S THE CHALLENGE:

  • For 10 days or 2 weeks, make water your only beverage.
  • Set aside the money which you would normally have spent consuming soda, juice, milk, coffee, etc, and donate it to the African Water Project.
  • You can donate daily or wait until the end to calculate the amount you saved and donate it then.
  • To donate daily or to fundraise as a team/youth group, check out our Crowdrise page: H20 Challenge.

    FAQ:

    Q. Is it a sacrifice to give up soda, Starbucks, tea, milk, and juice?

    A. Yes.

    Q. Is it worth it?

    A. Absolutely! For every $1 you save from skipping these beverages, you can provide 1 African clean water for 1 year!

    Q. Where does the money go?

    A. 100% of the funds we receive will go directly to the clean water projects in sub-Saharan Africa through the African Water Project.

    Q. What if I have to drink milk?

    A. Go ahead! But if you can skip it for 2 weeks, that might be a few more dollars you can give to save lives in Africa.

    Q. What if I buy bottled water?

    A. We suggest buying just one and then inconvenience yourself for the next 2 weeks by continuing to refill it.

    Q. What if I can't do it for 2 weeks?

    A. Then, do it for a week or a day, etc.
