Here's what people are saying about the #OneTwoFifty Campaign! Click "Tweet" above and follow us @One2Fifty!

1 in 6 people in the world are without access to clean water.

There are over 1.1 billion people worldwide in need of clean water for drinking and bathing.  The water crisis is not an issue of scarcity, but of access.

Dirty water is the main cause of disease and infection.

Almost one-tenth of the global disease burden could be prevented by improving water supply, sanitation, hygiene and management of water resources.

 

Every 20 seconds, a child dies from water-borne illness.

Diarrhea-related diseases are the leading cause of death in children under the age of five.  Improvements in water sanitation can help lower child mortality rates.

Dirty water reduces economic output & takes from education.

Improved sanitation facilities would help social and economic growth.  Unsafe water is the leading cause of lost work and missed school due to illness.

ABOUT

There are over 1.1 billion people without access to clean drinking water around the world. It’s a big world out there, and while the world is full of billions of people separated by race, color, and creed, we’re all connected through the human experience. Through charitable, non-profit organizations that bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations, we are able to directly participate in the eradication of water scarcity and pollution by raising money to build clean water wells in developing nations. According to charity:water, one well can serve up to 250 people with clean drinking water, hence the name of our campaign. While one well is great, we’re aiming higher, on a mission to supply over 1,000 students, teachers, and community members with clean water by raising $20,000! Crazy you say? We say nothing is impossible!

Two years ago, we witnessed first hand this need in Delhi, India, where we watched as long lines of impoverished Indians from the make-shift shanty towns formed around a water truck , waiting to fill their jerry cans. These water trucks are issued by the government in response to the inadequate distribution of clean water, but they are hardly enough of a response to supply the impoverished population with an adequate supply. Delhi, India is the 6th largest metropolis in the world, with a population of 17.3 million people, 1/3 of whom live in shanty towns and are therefore not recognized by the government. We saw people lined up for blocks waiting to get their weekly rations of water from a water truck, a mere 5-10 gallons per family, water with which they are supposed to drink and bathe with for a week, a family who’d normally have to pump contaminated water from filthy wells. It is a heartbreaking sight one can never forget, one that is very familiar in impoverished nations around the world that we hope we can someday erradicate through projects such as this.

Please help us raise money to help supply clean drinking water to those who need it! If we can meet our goal of $20,000, we will have raised enough to sponsor a water project to build a latrine that can service up to 1,000 students, teachers and surrounding community members! But the “OneTwoFifty” Campaign is an on-going campaign, so you can donate as many times as you like. We’re going to keep this project alive until everyone has access to clean drinking water! Remember, $25 gives 1 person clean water, but $20,000 gives it to over 1000 people!
