Why Water?
So you can wash your clothes, enjoy a meal, have a bath.

Right now, 800 million people on the planet don't have access to clean, safe drinking water. That's one in nine of us.

Every Drop Counts

The art needlepoint company needs your help. We would like to raise $10,000 to help build a well for clean drinking water. Every dollar you spend on a canvas with at least one drop of water helps us meet our goal. 10% of every order goes to charity: water. Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
Your SUPPORT will help change that.

Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren't strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses.

"Water is an astonishingly complex and subtle force in an economy. It is the single constraint on the expansion of every city, and bankers and corporate executives have cited it as the only natural limit to economic growth."
