Sunrise 750ml is here....and we are doing our little bit for 'Water Aid Australia'
It’s been a buzz of excitement at Earth Bottles HQ with the arrival of a new colour to our bottle collection. Sunrise 750ml is here and to celebrate we have decided to give back and donate $2 per bottle sold wholesale or retail and give back to Water Aid Australia.
We like to lead by example and align our company with organisations that are doing their little bit too...or in Water Aid Australia's case, a big bit!
Water Aid is an international charity that transforms lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation. Already being a part of the hope4health program in Arnhem Land, we know the importance of teaching, promoting and improving hygiene and health and safe water is a huge part to the puzzle.
For 650 million people worldwide, not having safe, clean drinking water is a daily reality and over 500,000 children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. That's 1,400 children a day....SCARY! I don't think I have ever thought of it in actual numbers, statistics...it’s real and it is shocking. It’s something that I have certainly taken for granted, turn a tap on for fresh clean running water, as much as I like, whenever I am thirsty. Imagine you had to travel 3-4 hours just to get some water for your family and the water may not be clean or safe to drink but its do or die!
Water Aid Australia works with local partners to help communities’ access safe water and sanitation. And they use their "experience and research to influence decision-makers to do more to provide these vital services."
They do this all over the world and it’s such a huge crisis that they can’t do it alone. Did you know that just $29 a month can provide clean water to two children?
Your generosity and support is essential to transforming the lives of the world’s poorest people. There are many different ways that you can help. For more information and how to fundraise go to http://www.wateraid.org/au/what-we-do/our-approach/fundraising
And I know this may sound like a broken record...but every dollar counts and from little things big things grow.
