SVMS to Give Up Drinks for Clean Water

Staff and students at SVMS are taking part in a different kind of fundraiser. Instead of raising money for themselves, they are raising money for people they will likely never meet, who live in places they will likely never visit, and whose life challenges they will likely never experience. Starting Monday, September 21st for two weeks they will take part in a program known as The Water Challenge. This fundraiser benefits people in Africa who don’t have access to a sustainable water supply. The Water Challenge asks participants to forgo all non-water beverages for two weeks and divert that money from personal consumption to a donation to the work of The Water Project (www.thewaterproject.org). The premise is simple; 1+1=1 One Promise: One Band: One Life. Participants wear a special wristband, drink tap or filtered water instead of spending money at coffee shops or soda machines, and donate what they would have spent. In other words, no money has to be pulled from savings or contributed by other people; money is simply re-purposed. The Goal? Each participant raises enough to bring clean water to one person; or about $23.
