Help Solve Our World's Drinking Problem
To you, getting a drink of water is easy. Turn on your faucet and get a refreshing drink.
To one in seven people worldwide, that’s impossible. Getting water is back-breaking, life-threatening work. Every. Single. Day.
They can’t drink, so neither can you. Until you donate.
DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT, UP TO $2 MILLION!
A generous group of donors has pledged $1 million to this campaign, and challenged us to raise another $1 million. Our party is growing but we need you for it to be complete!
Imagine the possibilities. You donate $25 and it has the power of $50. Raise $1,000 among friends and family and it has the power of $2,000.
HELP YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY EARN THEIR WATER TOO.
Become a fundraiser yourself! Give up your birthday, run a race, climb a mountain, celebrate National Grandparents Day, commemorate the Equinox, scare up some support during Halloween, or challenge your sports rivals to pay for that drink of water and support safe water and sanitation for women, men and children in developing countries.
YOUR TICKET TO DRINK
- Get a bracelet made in Rwanda when you donate $25 to $99.
- Get a stainless steel water bottle from Marmot Mountain with a donation of $100 or more.
- Trip for 2 to Rwanda! Become a fundraiser yourself and raise at least $1000 and you’ll be entered to win an all-expenses paid trip for two to Rwanda to join a World Water Corps volunteer expedition in 2012! Every $1000 raised earns you another entry.
Remember, it’s double-power donations, so be sure to invite everyone you know to donate. So raise your glass and buy the first round - everyone will love you for it.
