THE STORY:

 

Water is life.  It's something you probably don't think about much - any time you're thirsty, the faucet is just steps away.  But what if it wasn't?  What if the faucet was MILES away?  How would it change the way you live?

In parts of the world such as Honduras, Haiti and Uganda, the daily search for clean water is a fact of life.  Instead of filling a glass from the kitchen sink, a family choose one unlucky woamn to be responsible for finding water...every day.   She won't receive an education or any of the opportunities that come with it.  But the real tragedy is that the problem is so easy to solve.  With a donation of just $25, Water.org can provide clean, sustainable drinking water for one person for life.

Co-founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, Water.org has transformed hundreds of communites in Africa, South Asia, and Central America by providing access to safe water and sanitation.  Water.org works with local partners to deliver innovative solutions for long-term success.  All of the projects Water.org supports are self-sustaining, with organizational and financial structures in place to allow communities to independently operate and mainatin them.

Please help.  Give a young woman what we take for granted.  Water is life.  Click the 'Donate' button to make it happen.
