As you may recall, Contest Corner recently joined Procter & Gamble’s GIVE HEALTH initiative to donate clean drinking water to those in need. Thanks to YOUR clicks, the program achieved its goal of 100,000 days of water donated ahead of schedule! Thank you so much for helping us reach this wonderful goal. P&G sent me the following information about this milestone, along with more ways you can help the cause:
We Did It! 100,000 Days of Clean Drinking Water
Thanks to so many of you, Contest Corner has helped generate 100,000 days of clean drinking water through P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program (P&G CSDW). We crossed the finish line with hundreds of other bloggers who embedded the P&G Clean Water Blogivation widget on their sites. Every time a reader clicked, P&G committed to make one day (2 liters) of clean drinking water available to someone in need in a developing country.
To help you, our readers, understand the impact you made by pitching in with the Blogivation, check out this video about P&G CSDW’s work in Tanzania. It’s just one of the many stories about people who P&G CSDW – with the help of partners like World Vision, CARE, Save the Shildren and others – has been able to provide access to clean drinking water.
The PUR packet – developed by P&G in collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – is an innovation that quickly turns contaminated water into clean, drinkable water. Every day more than 4,000 children in developing countries die, simply because they don’t have clean drinking water, and more than 1 billion people around the world do not have access to clean drinking water
For that reason, Contest Corner is so excited to have been able to make a positive impact through the P&G Clean Water Blogivation on Changents.com. We hope you will stay involved on the P&G myGIVE Facebook page – for each new “like” and “share” through January 31, P&G will donate an extra day of clean water – and continue supporting extraordinary Change Agents around the world through Changents.com, our partner in helping P&G rally our readers to GIVE a day of water.
