Philanthropy - The Wide Awakening with Jennifer Hough

Philanthropy

So grateful to the courage of Spryte L., for the privilege to be able to make a difference on such a global scale. Myself and The Wide Awakening team are excited to express our little “piece of the puzzle” with the creativity and “leaned in-ness” that always inspires me. Let’s give what our hearts tell us versus simply $50. I can feel the juiciness of the possibility at our finger tips. Such a small act of generosity, can make such a huge difference for so many — we are 2/3 water after all — liquid love. A million people for 10 years here we come! xoxooxxo

The Waterbearers Mission

The Waterbearers Mission is to inspire women who have access to clean water to get it to those who do not.

Access to clean water has become a luxury, not a right, as fresh waterways diminish or have been contaminated. This is as true in developed nations as it is in the poorest countries. Over 37 million people die each year from water-borne diseases, that is more than 100,000 people per day.

Water is LIFE. Almost 70% of the human body is made of water. When we learn to respect and fall in love with WATER we stop taking it for granted. When we begin to savor water, both in our bodies and on the entire planet, we change our relationship to it and to each other.

We work with world leaders and strategic partners who take a no-nonsense attitude toward making global change. We use the most advanced, hollow fibre membrane filters that are small, portable, easy-to-use, reliable, inexpensive, AND can last a decade without needing to be replaced. $50 Filter = 1 Million Gallons of Clean Water. Our filters are certified for ABSOLUTE microns making it impossible for harmful bacteria, protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholerae and Salmonella typhi (which causes Cholera and Typhoid) to pass through. No pumping, no chemicals, no waiting, no worries! Incredible fast-flow rate, simple to use. and each filter can be backwashed to extend its life. Each filter provides clean water for up to 100 people. Filters are currently used in more than 70 countries worldwide.

Just $50 provides the distribution of one .1 Micron Absolute Filter, Bucket Adapter, Bucket Hole Cutter, Filter Cleaner, Adapter Hose and Filter Hanger. Our Partner WavesForWater.org identifies areas of the highest and most immediate needs worldwide. They send in a distribution team to provide usage and sustainability training to ensure communities adopt a sharing mentality around water, and are ready to take ownership of their own success! A filter is just the beginning. With proper usage, the filter becomes a clean water ally for years to come.

Help us get clean water to One Million people!
