Dear Tea Friends,
Did you know that one billion people on the planet don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water? That’s one in eight of us! Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation 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. 90% of the 30,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions are of children under five years old. Many of these diseases are preventable. The UN predicts that one tenth of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water supply and sanitation.
You can still help us raise money to fund water projects for communities in need through: http://mycharitywater.org/myteabreak
Charity: water started in 2006 with a simple idea: everyone on the planet should have clean water to drink. 100% of the money raised will go directly to the people in need and in 18 months you’ll see proof of the projects built using photos and GPS.
With only $20 you can help one person get fresh clean water.
We hope you can help us fund more water projects.
