Apparently, from March 17 to March 25, all participating restaurants are supposed to be selling their restaurant tap water for $1. This will generate funds for the cause!

I shared this on Facebook!

And now, -Why not give a Day of Safe Drinking Water for a Child?
All it takes is 200 butterfly credits, and a few seconds of your time...
So far 18,6 million Care2 members have given 210,600 days of safe drinking water. And I, as ONE out of all those members, have given 915...
Thank You! Gracias! Merci! Obrigado! Danke! Grazie! Tack!

Everyone is Entitled to Clean Water!
Clean water is possible for everyone. Write to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon asking him to dedicate more funding and resources toward providing the world and its children with clean, safe drinking water.
Please sign the petition:
Thank You!
