Welcome to the official fundraising page for the 10 Days campaign at Wake Forest University! This is where you can start your own crowdrise page to suport our campaign here at Wake in conjunction other campuses across the country and Living Water International, our official charitable partner.
Have you ever thought about how much money you spend on beverages? Think about it...coffee, sports drinks, milk, energy drinks. All that adds up. Meanwhile, there are close to a billion people worldwide without access to clean drinking water. The 10 Days Campaign encourages students to give up drinking all beverages except water, a commodity we often take for granted, for 10 days from November 11-20. Money saved on beverages can then be donated to help fight against this crisis.
This year at Wake Forest we are trying to raise $2000 dollars in order to support the 10 Days Campaign and Living Water International and their goal of $100,000 dollars total. All money raised will go to help our neighbors in Rwanda in the Ruhango province by providing them with a new Wash Program Area that will facilitate drilling clean water wells for the region.
So how can you help?
1) JOIN US: Give up drinking all beverages except water for ten days (November 11 - 20) and give what you save to drilling clean water wells in Ruhango.
2) SUPPORT: Help your friends and family by giving to their 10 Days campaign or give to their school’s team page.
Not sure what to give? Try $25.00
According to a 2012 study reported by Fox Business News, Americans ages 18-34 spend on average nearly $25 per week on coffee alone. (Note: here's the link to that report)
Let's drink water to give water!
