What do you know about the ongoing Global Water Crisis?
1. More than 800 million people lack basic drinking water access
2. 6x the population of the US lives without a household water connection
3. More people die from unsafe water than from all forms of violence, including war
This spring, the Green Team is partnering with Gravity Water, a non-profit dedicated to increasing global clean water access for schools through rainwater harvesting, storage, and filtration systems. We are running a fundraiser campaign to build clean water systems for students at the Tả Củ Tỷ 2 Primary and Secondary School in Bắc Hà, Vietnam. For just $8, you can provide a child with safe drinking water! Totally worth it.
Learn how you can contribute to the campaign HERE!
