BENEFITING: Water For People
We've all seen the videos posted recently of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that have been created to help bring awareness of ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), a degenerative disease that effects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.
While this has been virally successful & well-received, this challenge is wasting another very important necessity for humans-- water. So for every bucket of clean water wasted in the ALS challenge, I encourage you to follow up by contributing a donation to Water For People. They are a non-profit organization that brings together local entrepreneurs, civil society, governments, and communities to establish creative, collaborative solutions that allow people to build and maintain their own reliable safe water systems. Empowering everyone transforms people’s lives by improving health and economic productivity to end the cycle of poverty.
By donating $1 for every bucket of wasted water that you have watched be poured over someone's head for the ALS challenge and by sharing this fundariser, we can work together to fund another great cause that will help to change the world.
How many buckets are you willing to donate?
