thirsty? how many seconds would it take for you to get from where you are to a sink, fridge or water bottle where you could access clean, drinkable water? nearly 1 billion people in our world live without clean drinking water. 30,000 people die per day (3.575 million/year) because of a lack of access to something we take for granted. by the time you finish reading this, a child in the world will have died due to a lack of clean drinking water (every 20 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease). want to do something about it?
the goal is simple: one year, $5,000. this is the average cost of a water project through charity:water. each water project provides access to clean drinking water to around 250 people.
