Wash Away Thirst is a community of car wash owners, vendors, and clean car enthusiasts coming together to do something good. Every year World Water Day is celebrated on March 22 and this year we are asking car wash owners, vendors, and clean car enthusiasts to partner with us by making a donation to our campaign in order to bring clean water to people in need.
The money we raise will be used to build a water project in a rural community in Subsaharan Africa or Southeast Asia. To learn more about the solutions charity: water uses click here.
Since Wash Away Thirst was founded in 2009, over $40,000 has been given for water projects in Guatemala and Africa.
Because clean water changes everything!
Did you know there are 663 Million people on the planet who don't have access to life's most basic need? That's right, 663 million human beings-just like you and me-struggle to find water every single day. That's nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. Or, twice the population of the United States.
When a community gets access to clean water, lots can change. It can improve health, decrease medical expenses, increase equality, give girls more time in school, and give women the chance to grow food or earn income. It is estimated that every $1 invested in clean water can yield $4-$12 in economic returns.
It's actually quite simple. In just 2 steps you can make a difference.
Step 1: Click HERE or any Donate button to be directed to our Donations Page. After filling out some basic information about your wash(es) you will be directed to our my.charity.water page where you will make your donation through charity: water. You are free to donate any amount you like. Some suggestions would be $100 per location for car wash owners, $500-$1,000+ for car wash vendors, and $30 for clean car enthusiasts.
Step 2: Share your support and the my.charity: water link with everyone you know! Send it to fellow car washers, share it on social media, send an email blast, etc. The more people who give, the more money we raise, and the more people who get clean water!
