The Water Project

A FRES student said "We don't really need a soda but others really need fresh water!"

Donate your savings using this link:

Commitment pledges have been sent home and will be collected the week of March 2. Students and families are being asked to forgo paid beverages March 9-20 and donate the money saved during that time.

Here's how it works (taken from the web site):
  • Commit to make water your only beverage...for 2 weeks.
  • If your family goes out to dinner and you usually order iced tea, ask for water. It's free. You'll be amazed at how the savings add up. Encourage your whole family to participate.
  • Take the money you would have spent on soda, juice, sports drinks, bottled water etc., and put it aside to give clean water in Africa.
  • After 2 weeks, calculate the amount of money saved by your sacrifice and give water through The Water Project. It will be used to fund a new water project in Burkina Faso, Kenya, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Rwanda or Uganda!
