Welcome to the Fall edition of our Newsletter! We're excited to share upcoming events and supporter opportunities, as well as some truly appreciated recognitions for our work.
We are deeply thankful for the support you are providing through lasting access to clean water.
The Well Aware Team
Please join us at the Lone Star Film Festival in Fort Worth to view Well Aware's mini-documentary by Brad Feeser, an Austin filmmaker with Hearty Films. Our film will be screened on November 10th at around 3:30pm. A filmmaker Q&A will follow and tickets are $10 at the door.
This is a great opportunity to truly see the work Well Aware has done! View the movie trailer here: https://vimeo.com/176936846
After, we invite you to a post-movie reception at Flying Saucer in Sundance Square at 5pm. Street parking is easily accessible and there are multiple paring garages and lots in the area. Please RSVP below.
We're hosting a happy hour at Strange Land Brewery this Wednesday, November 2nd from 6-8pm, for our Village Members and anyone that is interested in getting to know a local Austin organization focused on bringing clean water to the neediest of communities in East Africa.
We will have yummy African eats prepared by Cazamance which will be perfectly paired with four of Strange Land's delicious beers. We will talk about our future endeavors for 2017 and how support from likeminded individuals has done so much for these communities.

That's right... we're not asking you to give to us, we're going to give to you!
