National Drinking Water Week 2012 is coming to an end. Even after the official celebration ends, we remain dedicated to building awareness of global water issues–at home, at the tap and beyond. With that in mind, we are excited to be able to give a substantial gift to Thirst Relief International this week.
Thirst Relief International is a water development organization with the vision to “save lives and change the world” by launching and sustaining water projects in impoverished rural areas and urban slum communities in several developing nations around the world. Thirst Relief International shares the same fundamental commitment as WaterFilters.NET to serve the cause of clean, safe water for all.
In November 2011, we launched “Water Filters for Charity”, giving a percentage of all website sales to water-related non-profits. Over the past six months, our donations have totaled thousands of dollars to over ten different organizations. Water Filters for Charity has helped charity: water build sustainable well projects in over four different villages (including in Ethiopia) and has sponsored five classrooms in our home state of Minnesota with water education resources through Project WET.
We are grateful for the opportunity to spread the word about these outstanding organizations, and all the work they do with our planet’s most vital resource, water.
