charity: water  We're bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in need around the world.

Over the past few years, our friends at @RedNoseDayUSA have helped bring clean water to thousands of people in Rwanda and Nepal! Tomorrow they'll help serve even more. Get your #NosesOn and tune in to #RedNoseDay tomorrow night at 8pm (EST)!

On Sunday, @jacksepticeye went live for nearly 10 hours of gaming and inspired dozens of doodles and thousands of donations. Together, this massive gaming-for-good community raised enough to fund clean water for more than 3,600 people in need!

We're sitting down with our founder @scottharrison at 6:00pm (EST) today to hear all about #ThirstBook.

Clean and safe drinking water is available deep below the ground in so many of the countries where we work. Thank you for helping us bring it to the surface!

After 30 years of marriage, Lijalem and Alemtsehay are still making each other smile. Today, they have even more reason to-- thanks to your support, clean water flows from a well in the middle of their community. Check out the link in our profile to see their story.

If you donated to a fundraising campaign in the 2nd half of 2017, check your inbox! We just sent project updates to over 25,000 of you to let you know that your money is being put to work in Mozambique, Bangladesh, and Ethiopia!

Whether you’re a #Laurel or a #Yanny, there’s one thing we can all agree on: every person on the planet deserves access to clean and safe drinking water.

Thanks to all of you who honored your mom by giving clean water this past weekend! 100% of your donations will help transform futures for moms like Denise all around the world.

Today, for the sixth year in a row (!!!), our friends at @rideforwater are setting out on a 3,220-mile bike tour across the United States to raise money for clean water.

These two incredibly passionate teams of college students are about to endure 50 days of sweat-soaked shirts, pulled muscles, and flat tires — all to help put an end to the water crisis. And we are just incredibly grateful.

Travel safely, friends. We can’t wait to celebrate you all in New York City soon.

For moms like Evelyn in Uganda, the gift isn’t just clean water. It’s five happy and healthy children at home. It’s money that can be saved for school instead of spent on medicine and visits to the doctor. It's never having to wade into the lake and fear crocodiles or pythons again. It’s everything.

On behalf of the millions of moms who you’ve helped serve over the past 12 years, thank you for choosing clean water. And thank you for changing everything.

When we met Dhana, she was waiting for her daughter and granddaughter to return home from collecting water. They had left in the middle of the night, at 3:00 am, to go get in line at a tiny trickling natural spring. It was now just before 8:00 am.

“I’ve gone through the same things they’re going through,” Dhana shared. “They don’t have much time to sleep.”

It’s not an uncommon story for families living in rural and mountainous parts of Nepal. During the dry season, when the few available natural springs almost dry up completely, communities aren’t left with many options: spend hours waiting in line for the nearby source to refill or trek miles down the mountain to another dirty water source far below.

The good news is that we’re working to change that. And you can help! This Mother’s Day, give your mom a gift that benefits mothers and grandmothers around the world. Give clean water and time at charitywater.org/donate/in-honor-of (link in bio).
