I love drinking water. Ice cold water. It is one of those things that I don't even think about. We turn on the tap and the water is just there. My kids love to swim, play with water guns and water balloons. We use water when we cook, every day. I never think twice about that.
We are so lucky to live in Canada with its endless supply of #cleanwater
Some FACTS about the Childrens Safe Drinking Water program:
- More then 7 billion litres of clean drinking water have been provided by humanitarian organizations across the world using P&G purification packets.
- This has helped to save an estimated 39,000 lives in more then 75countries.
TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--It can be said that nearly all Canadians enjoy an unlimited supply of clean water, so it’s no surprise that a recent survey by P&G and Walmart Canada found that 80 per cent of Canadians take clean drinking water for granted. Yet approximately one billion people in the developing world* do not have the same luxury, and diseases from contaminated water are killing more children every day than HIV/AIDS and malaria combined*. - See more at: http://news.pg.com/press-release/pg-corporate-announcements/clean-water-partnership-helps-socially-minded-canadians-giv#sthash.YwExQ8Qh.dpuf
WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP?
P&G and Wal-Mart joined together in the spring to bring one day of clean water for every P&G product purchased during the month of April. At the end of the month, P&G donated 8.6 million days worth of #cleanwater to the Children's Safe Water Drinking fund as part of the Clean Water Initiative.
P&G and Wal-Mart want to continue their commitment to reach a goal of bringing more then 25 million litres of #cleanwater in a 12 month period and will once again open up the program to include EVERY SINGLE P&G product from July 16-31,2014.
To bring awareness of this program, I will be participating in the #cleanwater photo challenge. Every day for the next 2 weeks, I will be posting a photo that will show how #cleanwater makes such a huge difference in our every day lives.
It is a 2 week challenge from July 18-31.
I want to invite all my readers and friends to participate in this challenge with me. The words for each day are listed in the photo below.
As you share your photos, please include:
#cleanwater, and the word for the day (Day 1 #thirst)
As you participate and share your photos, you will be entered into a draw for an amazing P&G Prize pack and a $250 Wal-Mart gift card.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone's photos and all of us working together to help reach this amazing goal!!
