This holiday season we are celebrating with a 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway! From December 10 – 21, be sure to check eco18.com, as well as our Facebook and Twitter to see what the giveaway of the day is, as well as how to enter.
Eco18 would like to kick off our 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways by giving a donation to charity: water, a non-profit organization, which will provide one family in Ethiopia with access to clean, safe drinking water.
charity: water is bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. They use 100% of public donations to directly fund sustainable water solutions in areas of greatest need. Right now, 800 million people on the planet don’t have access to clean and safe drinking water. That’s one in nine of us.
charity: water has invested over 18 million dollars in Ethiopia, 2,371 water projects have been funded and now 927,000 people have clean and safe drinking water.
83 million people live in Ethiopia, 62% of the people lack clean water, 88% of the people lack sanitation. More than 50 million Ethiopians don’t have access to safe water.
Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren’t strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses.
Help make a difference in someone else’s life this season.
