748 million people – roughly one in ten of the world's population – have no choice but to get water from wherever they can, whether it's a dirty pond or an expensive water vendor. We want to change this and you can get involved by fundraising and awareness raising for World Water Day on 22 March.
Here are some of our favourite fundraising ideas. Whether you decide to use one of these ideas, or decide to do your own thing, get in touch and let us know, we’d love to hear from you.

  • Just One Drop Take the plunge with a skydive on 22nd March to celebrate World Water Day! By taking on this once in a lifetime challenge you can help transform lives through clean, safe water. Book now
  • Talking taps and toilets over tea. Tea parties and coffee mornings are the perfect excuse to get friends together, so why not organise a Big History Tea Party and raise money for WaterAid? Check out our Big History toolkit and learn about the history of taps and toilets in your community.
  • Just Water This March take the Just Water challenge and give up all drinks apart from water for one month. It’s so easy to get started! Just set up your fundraising page , change your profile picture to one of you with a pint glass of water to show you’re involved and encourage your friends and family to support you.
  • Have you got the bottle but not the time to organise an event? We know that won’t stop you! Why not see how much you can raise by filling a recycled water bottle with loose change during March? Just £15 can help provide one person with safe water.
  • The Pupil Pipeline. Will your school or youth group join our exciting new Pupil Pipeline challenge so we can get safe, clean water to children who need it most for World Water Day? Learn more.
