"The UNICEF Tap Project is back! This year’s initiative asks Americans to unlock clean, safe water for children around the world by encouraging you to stop texting, calling, emailing, tweeting and posting -- and challenge your friends to do the same. Millions of children around the globe do not have safe, clean water to drink, and the lack of this basic necessity isn’t just inconvenient — it’s lethal. Take the challenge on your cell phone at UNICEFTapProject.org throughout the month of March. The longer you go without touching your smartphone, the more clean water will be unlocked for children in need." Check it out! At various intervals such as 5, 10, and 25 minutes the Tap Projects interactive feature lets you know how much water, purification tablets, etc. you have raised. And it constantly streams really interesting and moving data on the topics of phone usage and clean water accessibility or lack thereof. I started the challenge immediately after seeing a friend post the link and then checked my calendar. I will have my phone set aside for the next 31 hours. I'm not sure I can go past that w/ out ignoring teachers and colleagues but I think I can make it to 39 hours by using a paper map for navigation and running that aforementioned risk. After that I'll have to make a phone call. The record is just over 49 days? Anyways, please give this a shot and please donate towards this cause, as well, as best as you are able. Every $15 raised = 1 year of clean, safe water for a child.
