There are a lot of ways to do good but this one’s really easy and really powerful—help bring clean water to a person in need by purchasing a limited-edition Water.org reusable BPA-free water bottle. These custom-designed bottles are available for order online at gift.Water.org
and $10 from each purchase supports Water.org’s work to bring clean water to those in need.
The bottle’s design, courtesy of the collaborative effort of Kyle Damon, his wife Lori, and the talent of designer Elissa Traher of Traher Design, and artist, Jane Dixon, evokes a sense of hope, a calming playfulness, and the transformative power of having safe water. Available in insulated stainless steel for $24.99 and BPA-free plastic for $18.99, the bottles make a great gift to give or to receive this holiday season, and one that will make a life-changing difference.
“Last summer, I met a young girl who wasn’t in school because she spent hours each day walking to collect water from a river” recalled Matt Damon, co-founder of Water.org. “Gifts to Water.org have changed her life. Today she has clean water minutes from her home at a new community well. Every bottle sold will help make this kind of a difference in someone’s life.”
Co-founded by actor Matt Damon and social entrepreneur Gary White, Water.org is a nonprofit organization that has transformed hundreds of communities in Africa, South Asia, and Central America by providing access to clean water and sanitation (i.e. toilets). “Matt and I co-founded Water.org to make a difference and end the suffering around the world from not having safe water,” said Water.org Co-Founder and Executive Director Gary White. “We chose the CamelBak bottle because of its unique design, the company’s commitment to innovation, and their support of the safe water cause.”
As a special benefit, individuals can follow how their gift is making a difference in work around the world. By connecting their purchase to Water.org’s new project reporting site, my.Water.org, recipients can follow a community in real-time as lives are transformed with a new water system. my.Water.org will make it easy to share stories online from real people as they struggle, dream, and ultimately, improve their lives with clean water.
Gary White added, “We invite you to join us in spreading the message of urgency and hope that someday everyone in the world can have access to clean, safe water. Your purchase of our limited-edition water bottle will show that you care and make a difference to the countless people on our planet in need.”
