Can you even imagine what your life would be like if you didn’t have access to clean water to drink, to cook with, or bathe your children in? This is a clear and present daily concern for many people around the world. Something as simple as clean water is a luxury to many and we take it for granted in America.
What if you could help bring fresh, clean water to someone who needed it? Wouldn’t that be an amazing feeling? This holiday season, we are working with a non-profit, Charity Water to do just that for families in Cambodia. Charity Water works year-round to bring safe water to people in need.
Learn how they help and how water touches every part of a community in the video below.
What Is Charity Water?
Since 2006, Charity Water has empowered communities in several different countries by providing them with clean water. This can come in the form of building wells, providing filtration systems, or even setting up rainwater catchments.
Who Will My Charity Water Donation Help?
This specific campaign raises money for Charity Water’s campaign based in Cambodia. The people in this part of the world have plenty of water in their region, but there are not enough filtration systems to ensure that the water is drinkable and disease-free.
Check out the numbers
There are 14.8 million people in Cambodia.
33% don’t have access to clean water.
67% don’t have adequate sanitation.
23% are below the poverty line.
When you donate to this Charity Water campaign, the money will pay for BioSand Filters for families in Cambodia. For a $15 donation, you can provide clean water to one person.
For a donation of just $65, you can pay for a BioSand Filter for one family in Cambodia.
These filters are designed to eliminate 99% of all residential water bacteria. The filter will be given to a family in Cambodia and will supply them with fresh, clean water every day. We will be able to see the communities the filters with GPS tracking and photos.
How Much Money Does Charity Water Need?
I have partnered up with many bloggers from The Village Green Network to reach a goal to raise $50,000 for Charity Water this holiday season. I couldn’t be more proud of our ability to change people’s lives. This is truly the way to give from your heart this holiday season!
A donation of $15 will help Charity Water help one person retain access to water, but a $65 donation will provide an entire family with a BioSand Filter (pictured below).
If we achieve our goal, Charity Water will help over 700 families get water filters in Cambodia! That is amazing!
