An Australia Wide callout. Can you drink just water for a whole month? With 1 in 9 people worldwide not having close access to clean water you can help to make the changes by taking the Water Challenge and committing to make water your only beverage for the whole month of March (1-31) 2018. With your support, WaterAid will again be able to help those in need to access clean drinking water. Last year alone they made life better for 1.5 million people with clean water.
Sign up HERE, and/or you can DONATE as well. This year, you decide how strictly you want to interpret water and where you draw the line between a drink and a meal. There's really only 1 rule. Water is all you drink for a month. Choose from 2 levels of difficulty and decide which criteria you can stick to. Level 2 permits all water (incl.sparkling water), except flavoured water, and Level 1 allows you to add fruit, spices and herbs to your water (see recipes), but herbal tea is prohibited.
CLICK HERE for complete detailed rules and to find out about the 'Raise A Glass pass'. At the end of the day, keep in mind that the most important thing about this challenge is that you take it in good spirits (pardon the pun). As long as you're making a sacrifice and raising funds and awareness for the 650 million people who still lack access to safe water, everyone is happy!
Stay updated via the Facebook page. You can also join a group (the Water Challenge community) to chat about the challenge with past and present participants from around Australia. If you have ideas of how to raise money for people in need of clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene, you can create your own fundraising page. WaterAid is an international not-for-profit, passionate about making clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere.These three essentials need to be a staple in order to change peoples lives for good. It's hard to imagine going through life without this essential, yet, millions do. Have a heart and please help.
