Introducing the July Charity – charity: water

by Team Swagbucks on Mon, July 2nd, 2012 at 1:00 pm

From behalf of all of us here at Swagbucks we want to say a very big thank you for helping us reach 102,670 Swag Bucks in donations for last month’s charity, the Prostate Cancer Foundation.  Not only do we appreciate it, but the thousands of lives you are helping appreciate it also.

This month we’ve shifted our focus to a worldwide crisis.  We may not realize, but we take our unlimited water supply for granted.  Every shower we take, every sip of water we drink, and every dip in the pool we take we should be enormously grateful for.  There are many parts of the world that are not as lucky.  That is why for the month of July we have chosen charity: water to represent.

charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations.  They use 100% of public donations to directly fund sustainable water solutions in areas of
greatest need.

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

Just $20 can give one person access to clean water.
