On Monday we reviewed the Hydros Bottle and talked about how they are helping to find solutions to the worldwide water crisis. It is International World Water Week, so we have been encouraging our readers to do what they can to help find ways to get water to the nearly 1 billion people who lack clean drinking water. Now, the UNICEF Tap Project provides a super easy way to help bring clean drinking water to children across the globe.
Want to Be Like Lenny Kravitz? Pay $1 for Tap Water
Ever wish you could be like Lenny Kravitz? Done. While I can’t guarantee you will become a GRAMMY award-winning singer-songwriter, record producer and actor – you can be just like Lenny when it comes to drinking tap water in restaurants this week. Here is a quick video –
How simple is that? Simply head over to the UNICEF Tap Project now and find restaurants that are participating. In addition you can also learn other ways to donate or help.
Can Paying $1 For Tap Water Really Make a Difference?
Absolutely yes! By simply paying $1 for tap water, you will be providing one child with access to clean drinking water for 40 days. This is the real beauty of the UNICEF Tap Project, by paying just $1 for something we take for granted at every meal, we can help children in need, while also raising awareness about how many people have limited access to clean drinking water.
The Water Crisis Is Real, But We Can Make a Difference
I will spare you all the depressing statistics about the nearly 1 billion people who do not have access to clean drinking water. The fact that waterborne illnesses are the second leading cause of preventable childhood deaths in the world—killing nearly 4,000 children every day, should be enough to shock and sadden any parent.
As real as the water crisis is, we absolutely can make a difference. Due to the work of UNICEF and other organizations, since 1990, more than 2 billion people have gained access to improved drinking water sources and 1.8 billion people have gained access to improved sanitation facilities. Reducing illness and death due to a lack of clean drinking water is one of those problems we absolutely can solve! Be like Lenny Kravitz this week, pay for your tap water and let’s make a change. Who knows, with all the good Karma you get, you may even win a Grammy someday…or at least become a Grammy or Grampa.
