Women around the world walk a combined 200 million hours a day to get access to safe water for their families, many times making multiple trips.
Water.org is an organization trying to help the 1 in 9 people without access to clean, safe water. Having safe water doesn’t just help with disease + nutrition, it also has positive benefits on health, education, sanitation, and socioeconomic opportunities.
Stella Artois, a Belgium brewing company with roots going back as far as the fourteenth century, has teamed up with Water.org to help the 750 million people without proper access to water. Their pledge of $1.2 million is contingent on public support.
In order to help support this initiative, Stella Artois is selling three beautiful chalices. Each chalice has a design inspired by a country Water.org supports. The chalices are $12 a piece. The purchase of one chalice provides one citizen of India, Honduras, or Ethiopia with clean water for five years. These chalices are a great gift for anyone in your life, especially beer drinkers or people who appreciate a good cause. Visit their website today.
There are also many other ways you can support Water.org. Visit their website to learn what you can do to help impoverished people + get more information about the misallocation of water resources.
UPDATE: Stella Artois extended their partnership with Water.org through 2020. Consider purchasing a chalice today to help women + families across the world get access to safe, usable water.
