How to Shower Strike

  • Option 1: Skip Showers

    WHAT?!
    Once Shower Strike kicks off, you’ll commit to skipping showers for a week, or until you reach your fundraising goal — whichever comes first!

    WHY?!
    In communities where clean water is not a reality, a shower is often a luxury. That’s why, for the past 13 years, thousands of advocates have been putting themselves in the shoes of those who lack this vital resource.

  • Option 2: Walk for Water

    WHAT
    Grab a bucket of water, a gallon, a jerrycan, or a water bottle and walk outside each day for a week, or until you meet your fundraising goal.

    WHY
    Individuals in East Africa without access to reliable clean water walk an average of 3.6 miles to fetch water, sometimes daily. They usually use jerrycans, which can weigh up to 40 pounds when full.

  • Option 3: Just Fundraise

    WHAT
    Raise money during Shower Strike the best way you know how. You can get creative and make up your own fundraising activities like a bike ride or bake sale. Or keep it simple and just collect donations.

    WHY
    Your fundraising efforts will change lives, transform futures, and enable entire communities to thrive.
