Seattle

More than 1,000 people carried water for 5 kilometers on May 15, walking in solidarity with the 1 billion people around the world who still carry water every day. Together, we raised $155,000—providing 2,066 people in Ethiopia, Bangladesh, and Honduras with clean water and toilets FOR LIFE.

You have ended their walk for water FOREVER. More girls can go to school, women will have time to earn money, and children will live healthier lives.
