We can help by lending our voices to the effort, and helping raise money.
This year, as for the past 2 years, we are talking to our friends and colleagues about the devastating facts of water scarcity:
- 884 million people lack access to safe water supplies; approximately one in eight people.
- 3.575 million people die each year from water-related disease.
- Every 20 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease.
We feel that the best way to help the situation is to support already-existing initiatives with local connections. In an effort to shrink these numbers, we are working with Water.org, the global non-profit that partners with local experts to help communities dig wells and supply clean water to their citizens.
We urge you to get involved, participate, spread the word, and donate. Last year we held a retweet contest and donated $200 in the name of the tweeter who retweeted for ZEDO the most, but this year we are going bigger. We will match your donation up to $100. That means, if you give $5, we give $5 and together we give $10.
