This summer, we invite you to #STANDUP for clean water, to help unleash a powerful ripple effect of positive change in people’s lives. When you stand up for clean water, you are standing up for better health, for equality, for girls, for the future.

By giving the gift of clean water you will be helping people in some of the world’s most impoverished and marginalized communities who are in desperate need of this basic life-giving resource — people like Josée in Amberomena village in Madagascar who dreams of starting a business and building a better life for her two children.

Please consider showing your support today, either through a monetary gift or by donating your social media real-estate to help raise much-needed awareness!
