As a company with a global reach, we think it's important to support less privileged communities worldwide and play our own small part in giving something back. Charity:water is our chosen charity to which we annually donate and support however we can.
Charity:water is a non-profit bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. The charity gives 100% of the money raised to direct project costs, funding sustainable clean water solutions in areas of greatest need.
Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of all sickness and disease, and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Many people in the developing world, usually women and children, walk more than three hours every day to fetch water that is likely to make them sick. Those hours are crucial, preventing many from working or attending school. Additionally, collecting water put them at greater risk of sexual harassement and assault. Children are especially vulnerable to the consequences of unsafe water. Of 42,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and a lack of basic sanitation, 90% are children under 5 years old.
