Here's to all the ways you helped give water
From socially distant lemonade stands to backyard marathons—you didn’t give up on your goals or ours. You raised funds to change lives with safe water. You ran races so kids could walk to school instead of walk to collect water. You baked cookies so moms could give their children safe water from taps in their homes. You asked for water instead of wedding gifts. You dedicated your birthday to the lives of others.
You gave every month
You cared, you believed, and you committed. With each monthly donation, you made health, hope, and opportunity possible. Moms can give their children safe water to protect them from illness. Kids can go to school and dream about the bright futures ahead. And families have health and time to earn income and break their cycle of poverty.
