We are busy creating awareness for the resource water. From understanding what contaminates flow through your shower, to connecting to those that live their life without clean water. We are looking to inspiration, design and art to strengthen this knowledge so that we can make some positive moves.
We give 10% of our profits to a foundation of our choice that supports a water cause and raises awareness of the issues affecting water as a resource worldwide. We are excited to be working with Charity:Water…check out their amazing call to action, they set such a fantastic example and we are honoured to be a part of their plight.
"Water is the driving force of all nature" - Leonardo da Vinci
"Water is God's tranquilliser" - Diana Vreeland
"They both listened silently to the water, which to them was not just water, but the voice of life, the voice of Being,
the voice of perpetual becoming" - Hermen Hesse, Sidartha
"Water is life's mater and matrix, mother and medium. There is no life without water" - Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
"Water has no taste, no colour, no smell, it cannot be defined, art relished while ever mysterious, not necessary to life but life itself. It fills us with the gratification that exceeds the delight of the senses" - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Charity:Water is a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries. 100% of all public donations directly fund water projects, and we prove every dollar using photos and GPS coordinates on a map.
It's hard not to think about water today. In the western world, we face growing concerns about our stewardship of the world's most precious resource. There's talk of shortages, evidence of reservoirs and aquifers drying up, and of course, plenty of people who simply don't care.
But forget about us.
Most of us have never really been thirsty. We've never had to leave our houses and walk five miles to fetch water. We simply turn on the tap, and water comes out. Clean. Yet there are 800 million people on the planet who don't have clean water.
It's hard to imagine what 800 million people looks like really, but one in nine might be easier. One in nine people in our world doesn't have access to the most basic of human needs. Something we can't imagine going 12 hours without.
Here, we'd like to introduce you to a few of those 800 million. They are very real, and they need our help. They didn't choose to be born into a village where the only source of water is a polluted swamp. And we didn't choose to be born in a country where even the homeless have access to clean water and a toilet.
We invite you to put yourself in their shoes. Follow them on their daily journey. Carry 80 pounds of water in yellow fuel cans. Dig with their children in sand for water. Line up at a well and wait eight hours for a turn.
Now, make a decision to help. We're not offering grand solutions and billion dollar schemes, but instead, simple things that work. Things like freshwater wells, rainwater catchments and sand filters. For about $20 a person, we know how to help millions.
