Lisa Schwartz Supports the Strike
Help Water change the lives of 100 people.
Matt Damon, co-founder of Water.org, is taking a stand for the water crisis and is going on strike. I am doing my part to support him.
The problem is enormous but we can make a difference. One in eight people don't have safe water meaning each morning they scavenge to survive. 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. Water.org has been helping people get sustainable solutions for over twenty years. We can make a difference in the world and together we can help change someone's life.
I certainly can't think of a better way to spend my money.
I'll donate more when I get my next paycheck!
When you make a contribution to this fundraiser, you are helping to end the water crisis.
Around the world, 780 million people lack access to safe water to drink. This impacts overall health and contributes to the cycle of poverty.
The impact of the water crisis on time alone is astounding. Women around the world, who shoulder the majority of daily water collection, walk on average 3.7 miles every day to collect water.
Your contribution to this fundraiser will help people gain access to safe water through the work of Water.org, a nonprofit organization.
Water.org’s projects heavily involve the communities in need. They decide what kind of solution will work best and help with the construction.
Through local water committees, made up of community members, they also decide how to manage their solution and collect small user fees to maintain it long-term.
Once people gain access to safe water, everything changes. Kids are healthy enough to attend school, women aren’t waiting or walking for water and can work, and families are transformed.
