Did you know that 783 million people do not have access to clean water?
Statistics like this are thrown around all the time, and numbers like that seem so huge that, if you are like me, you probably just tell yourself there is no real impact that you can make. And lets be honest, it would take a whole lot more than just one person to make a dent in that number, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try and change the life of just one person in the world that is in need of clean water.
Have you heard of the Me to We campaign? Me to We supports a borehole in Irkaat, Kenya that provides the community of more that 1,800 with access to clean water. This campaign launched in 2016 with help from Brita water filters and pitchers. It is pretty amazing to know that an additional 1,800 people now have access to clean water thanks to Me to We and Brita.
This spring, Brita is expanding the campaign to include specially marked water bottles that you can purchase in Canada from Wal-Mart, Real Canadian Super Store, Real Atlantic Super Store, Loblaws, and Zehrs locations for only 19.99.
As part of the Me to We transparent giving model, all Me to We Brita product come with a track your impact code for consumers to track exactly where and how their purchases have made an impact. This would be a great thing to share with your children so that they can understand the amazing impact of one small decision to purchase a water bottle can make.
If you ever feel like you can’t make a difference as a single person, go out today, purchase this bottle, and provide a year of clean water to someone in Kenya that is waiting to be blessed with clean drinking water.
Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.
