We’re obsessed with our cell phones. Sometimes for good reasons. Other times we check for likes. And check, and check. Or read intriguing articles about. Well never mind. And have you been out to dinner lately?
We think we can’t live without our phones. So why don’t we use them to help provide something people ACTUALLY can’t live without? Clean water.
At http://uniceftapproject.org you can do just that. Give clean water to a child in need by taking a challenge to not touch your phone. The longer you go without your phone the more you can help UNICEF to provide clean water for children.
In fact, 10 minutes can provide a child with clean water for a day. So every minute count. Keep going!
When you can’t resist any longer our sponsors and donors a donation will make a to donation to the UNICEF Tap Project based on the time you went without your phone. At this point you can make an even bigger difference by making a donation yourself. As little as $5 can provide a child clean water for 200 days.
The fact that millions of children still live without something as basic as clean water is hard to put in perspective. So take a moment to reflect by going without something far less vital than water—your cell phone.
Water is life. Yet 768 million people do not have access to safe, clean drinking water, and 2.5 billion people live without proper sanitation. When water is unsafe and sanitation non-existent, water can kill.
