Another terrific effort here, this one begun by Gary White and actor Matt Damon, in an effort to get water to everyone, everywhere on the planet.
The water and sanitation problem in the developing world is far too big for charity alone. We are driving the water sector for new solutions, new financing models, greater transparency, and real partnerships to create lasting change. Our vision: the day when everyone in the world can take a safe drink of water.
Co-founded by Matt Damon and Gary White, Water.org is a nonprofit organization that has transformed hundreds of communities in Africa, South Asia, and Central America by providing access to safe water and sanitation. Water.org traces its roots back to the founding of WaterPartners in 1990. In July 2009, WaterPartners merged with H2O Africa, resulting in the launch of Water.org. Water.org works with local partners to deliver innovative solutions for long-term success. Its microfinance-based WaterCredit Initiative is pioneering sustainable giving in the sector.
If you'll go to the link below, you can get a high quality, premium water bottle and all profits go to help people in the world get access to clean water.
And check it out---by complete coincidence, the headquarters for the organization is right here in Kansas City:
920 Main St.
Kansas City, MO 64105 USA
Phone: (816) 877-8400
(Their other 2 offices are in Tamil Nadu. India and Nairobi, Kenya.)
So here's another chance to do yet more good---maybe with a holiday gift you were going to get someone anyway.
Happy holidays, y'all.
