All proceeds support Thirst Project.
What is the Thirst Project?
The Thirst Project travels the country to middle schools, high schools and college campuses speaking people our age to educate students about the global water crisis, and challenge them to take action to end it. In just seven years, we’ve raised over $8 Million and funded projects to provide over 280,000 people with safe, clean water! We can no longer ignore the #1 global killer of children. Our goal is to provide safe, clean water and sanitation to the entire nation of Swaziland by 2022. With your help, we believe we can do this. With your help, we can give water. With your help, we can give life.
