Make a Move for Water is a global call to action to raise awareness and funds for communities around the world who lack access to clean water and sanitation. During the whole month of March, groups worldwide will work together to help provide and protect water! Take action where you are to make a global impact.
You and your group (any size!) plus hundreds of thousands worldwide! During the month of March, CLEAN International is engaging groups on all seven continents. Can you help us spread the word? The event is free! The goal is to raise funds while promoting awareness about 2 billion people lacking access to clean water worldwide. $10 can help provide clean accessible water for one person, for life!
This event is virtual and engages groups and individuals in their own neighborhoods, schools and places of business. You determine where you or your group willtake action! Record a video on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and let us know how you are making a move for water! Use the hashtag #makeamoveforwater!
2 billion people worldwide lack access to clean water. By 2050, 40% of the global population will face water scarcity. Over 2,000 people die every day from unclean water and thousands are walking an average of 4 miles a day to fetch water. Access to clean water not only saves lives, but keeps women and children in school and off a lifetime path of collecting water. Together, we can help promote awareness! We can save water in our own homes while also taking action to help bring water where it’s needed most!
Funds raised will go directly to CLEAN International’s programs dedicated to the eradication of waterborne illness and an end to the daily walk for water worldwide. CLEAN International protects water through tree planting and water conservation projects and provides Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) education and clean water access, water filters, toilets, hygiene stations, rainwater harvesting systems and more to communities in need around the world!
Please register for the virtual event at www.cleaninternational.org! Provide your pledge of action during the registration process! Examples: I pledge to plant a tree. I pledge to plant 10 trees.
