I came across Well Aware and the Water Walk Event during my personal research online. When I read more on the Water Walk, I couldn't stop thinking of how an event like that would make a positive impact on my company and on the world. So, through a leap of faith, I asked to put on the event for my company, and I was fortunate enough to receive such a welcoming "yes" by my coworkers.
The lead-up to the Water Walk was just as fun as the event itself. We were able to get people excited about donating through educational emails, trivia questions and departmental competition. I was...more
"...I believe that we can make a difference together"
Rather than being showered with gifts, Andy has decided to donate his birthday to African communities in need by creating a fundraiser on Facebook. He's set a goal of reaching $1,000 which seems quite feasible - in the first day alone managed to reach almost $200!
If you'd like to give the gift of clean water, follow the link to Andy's fundraiser:
Because of the amazing hard work of our #ShowerStriker participants, their incredible communities, and our generous donors, ShowerStrike 2017surpassed our goal of $175,000. We are now able to provide life saving, clean water to 17,722 people.
Thank you for everything that you have done to help make that possible!
And special big shoutout and heartfelt thank you to all of our #ShowerStrike individuals who went above and beyond, surpassing their $1,000 fundraising goals:
All donations will be matched today only.
Because of the generosity of our matching sponsors, every dollar you donate today- up to $20,000- will be doubled. That means your $20 donation becomes $40, your $50 donation becomes $100--- twice as many people, twice as many lives will be impacted because of you.
"While the students are raising money for Well Aware, they are also learning about places they have never heard of and people and circumstances they don’t know exist."

Today, we also want to share the story of one of our beloved Shower Strikers, Dawn Scholtens, a 2nd Grade Teacher who has been leading the "Sunset Stinkers" on a Shower Strike every year for the past 5 years. When Dawn registered this year, she shared the...more
