In an effort to provide access to clean drinking water in sub-Saharan Africa, this water challenge is trying to get people to give by giving up. The Water Project is asking people to only drink water for two weeks and donate the money they save on juice, coffee, sodas and other beverages to water projects.
In North America drinking water is clear, readily available and relatively inexpensive. By participating in The Water Project's Water Challenge, you will also receive a band that acts as both a reminder of your commitment as well as a way to raise awareness. If you give to their organization you can also see the project you helped build in 8 to 12 months on their site.
