As you might know, clean water is one of the scarcest resources in the world. We need it to survive, and yet nearly a billion people don't have access to it. We want to get involved, so we're partnering with Charity:Water to help make a difference. Charity:Water is an organization that donates 100% of the money it raises to building wells and bringing clean water to communities in need. They're leveraging technology in really creative ways to mobilize people around the cause, and we want to get you, our viewers, involved.
Each show on Revision3 is reaching out to our viewers to raise money to build wells. It takes $5,000 to build a well that can provide clean water to an entire village, so we need your help to make a difference. Go to Revision3.com/CharityWater to learn more and get involved for the cause.
