Background on the collective & future events
In the past 5 years, we've been reminded how limited and precious our finite amount of water is to our lives and our world. We have accessible, clean water and don't have to think about attaining it daily.
For most of us, our leisure time is spent seeking adventure centered around water (backpacking, skiing, fly fishing, diving, boating, etc) yet we don't stop and think about those that don't even have access clean drinking water. It is a moral imperative and a human right to have access and Charitywater.org is making strides to accomplish that.
"633 Million people live without clean water. That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. Or, twice the population of the United States." -Charitywater.org
Fact: Every $66 raised provides clean, drinkable and accessible water to one person in need.
