WHAT IS OUR CHALLENGE
We challenge you to drink a minimum of 2.6 liters (the recommended amount aka 5.5 16oz bottled waters) everyday for the month (or remaining) of April!
For every day you do not drink the recommended amount of water, you donate (100% of proceeds) towards the "Charity: Water" campaign to help those around the world who do not have access to clean drinking water.
The amount of money you pledge to donate each day you do not meet the recommended amount is fully up to you. You can do $1, or $3, or $10, or even $197.36 each time if you so chose. The amount is set by you and it's up to you to keep yourself to it.
We recommend that you keep track of how many days you don't drink enough water and at the end of each week donate the amount you pledged/promised yourself to. Below is the link to donate your pledged amount.
WHY ACCEPT OUR CHALLENGE
Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets are clean! #TOOCLEAN
But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, 1,400 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections, and BioSand Filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.
This fundraising campaign was started by our organization to promote the healthy achievement of drinking the recommended amount of water while simultaneously helping and raising awareness for those around the world to don't have the same access to water as we do.
Please accept our challenge and, if you can, donate to the campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help. 100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.
