Dress in blue, paint yourself blue, decorate your school or office blue, bake blue cakes, drink blue drinks, play the blues... sing the blues! We don’t mind how you do it – just go blue.

We’re celebrating World Water Day on 22 March to raise awareness about the world’s water crisis – and the 650 million people around the world who still lack access to safe, clean water. 

We'd love you to get involved. Go blue in any way you like, and show your support for World Water Day.

Four easy steps to spread the ripples of change

It’s easy to be a part of World Water Day and make a difference.

By raising funds and spreading the word, you can help us get another step closer to ensuring that everyone everywhere has access to safe, clean water by 2030.  

  • Step 1 Go blue! You can dress head to toe in blue, sport a Walter the water drop face mask, bake blue cakes or play the blues – be as creative as you like!
  • Step 2 Challenge your friends, school or office to join you. Ask for a small donation to take part and tell your local media too.
  • Step 3 Tell the world why you are #Blue4Water and call on world leaders to keep their promise for everyone to have access to clean water and sanitation by 2030.
  • Step 4 Change your profile picture to our blue wash (coming soon!), and share your photos on social media. Spread the ripples of change even further. 

Help us make as much noise (and money) as possible, to reach the world’s poorest people with the most basic of necessities: clean, safe water.
