Why You Should Help: Frightening Statistics

  • 884 million people in the world do not have access to water that's clean enough to drink. This is roughly one in eight of the entire world's population.
  • 1.4 million children and 800,000 adults die every year as a result of diseases and illnesses caused by dirty water and bad sanitation.
  • To get water, African women walk more than 10 km everyday to a contaminated water source to carry back water to their village.
  • A single dollar can provide clean water for a child for an entire year!
You may be hesitant to donate, and that's OK, because just viewing this page helps donate a cent or two to needy Africans. How do we get money to donate through just a page view? Is this a scam? We get the money through our ads, and all money made will be used for further fund raising activities to get more money to donate, or go straight to charity. Also please comment on our blog so we can improve it to the best of our abilites.
