Water, one of the most basic needs. Clean drinking water. We all need it, but one in nine people don't have access to it. Yep there are nearly a billion people on the planet who don't have clean water.
There are many organizations trying to bring water to developing nations. This one is doing it 100%. 
charity: water. "We're a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries. 100% of all public donations directly fund water projects." via charitywater.org
Located in SOHO in NYC, they have a powerful team fighting this injustice, one water project at a time. How do I know this (okay, their website has a lot of this information)? I was one of them.
I worked as a part of the communication team, balancing schedules, greeting guests and answering (so many) emails about charity: water. That's how I know that truly 100% of your donation goes directly to funding water projects. I have never been more impressed with a company. They were so generous and even when I had to leave after a few months the founder donated his personal money to my missionary training school. 
If you have never checked them out, please visit their perfectly-branded website, it's as beautiful as the offices are.

Just $20 can provide safe, clean drinking water. That's definitely something we can all do. Please visit, send some love to them. They are truly and amazing organization!


*This is not a sponsored post, these are my opinions and thoughts to highlight the great work they are doing. I have been asked questions about my time at charity: water and wanted to share a little. Please email me if you have any other questions! I will be bringing some more non-profit love your way in the future!
