I have been deeply inspired by Sheena Matheiken's The Uniform Project (www.theuniformproject.com). Artist Cynthia Shaffer has designed and created a uniform inspired by the project that I pledge to wear for one full year, until Valentine's Day 2013, to bring attention to the world's water crisis, and to join countless others who are finding ways to mend, alter, make, and make do.
I invite you to support this fundraiser with a minimum sponsorship of $25. With this tax-deductible sponsorship, you are invited to mail me a handmade accessory (e.g., scarf, pin, socks, bloomers, vest, apron, cuff, etc.) that I can wear with the uniform (CRESCENDOh, PO Box 11726, Santa Ana, CA 92711). Each sponsored accessory will be used for a uniform outfit that is photographed and blogged about on www.crescendoh.com with a link back to your site. If you want the accessory returned, please send sufficient postage for shipping. Also, you are free to sponsor this effort without sending in an accessory. :)
In just one day, more than 200 million hours of women's time is wasted simply collecting water for domestic use. Lack of safe water and sanitation impacts a family's health, keeps children from getting an education, and traps millions in a cycle of poverty.
For only $25 Water.org can get someone safe water for life. We can make a difference in the world, we can help change someone's life. Thank you for your consideration.
With love, Jenny
