Water is not Free for Everyone

We often take for granted the fact that clean tap water comes to us at no cost. Meanwhile, the lack of access to clean drinking water is destroying lives around the world. To bring light to this issue, UNICEF created The Tap Project. The awareness campaign will be holding World Water Week starting tomorrow until March 28, when participating restaurants will offer their customers the opportunity to donate $1 for ordering a glass of tap water. The money raised will go towards UNICEF's efforts to bring safe drinking water to the millions of children around the world who lack it. Every dollar raised will provide one child with clean water for 40 days. Learn more about the project here, and find out which restaurants are participating in World Water Week.
