Our mission is simple: We clean water for kids. Safe drinking water is the most essential life-sustaining requirement. There is no substitute - not at any price. In this day and age, in such a plentiful world, clean water should no longer be the privilege of some, but the basic right of every child.

BONUS DAY ALERT - THIS WEDNESDAY!! Mark your calendar!

This Wednesday, March 14, is Bonus Day on GlobalGiving. If you donate on that day, GlobalGiving will match 30% of your donation up to $1,000!!

Help us start our work cleaning water for children’s hospitals in China! We are so close—we can begin once we are 50% funded, and as of today we are less than $2500 away!

How does the match work? Whatever amount you give, Global Giving will tack on an additional 30% to that gift, so:

- While $50 would normally provide clean, safe drinking water to 200 hospitalized children in China, on Bonus Day $50 serves 272 children!!

- Normally, a $300 donation would pay for one water dispenser and one drinking water heater for baby formula prep. But on Bonus Day, if you give just $231, Global Giving will cover the rest!!

Look for an update about Founder Eric Stowe's recent trip to China in the coming weeks!

Thank you!

February 2012 Update

The "Clean Water to Children's Hospital Project" will commence once 50% of project funding has been raised. Today, we are less than $2500 away from that half-way mark, which means we will be able to move on to the next phase of the project very soon! With help from you and others like you, we are excited about extending our reach beyond our main focus in China--orphanages--to hospitals. Imagine an infant care ward that cannot adequately clean baby bottles or mix infant formula with safe, clean water! Our success and expertise working with Chinese institutions puts us in a unique position to really make an impact in this setting.

Indeed, we are making great things happen in China on a massive scale. Currently, we clean water for 1 community center, 19 displacement camps, 367 orphanages, and 8 schools--over 80,000 children! Our China “Clean Water for Orphans Project” (launched in 2007) is on track for completion in 2013, ensuring safe drinking water for every active orphanage in the country.

Both our Executive Director, Eric Stowe, and our China Program Manager, Bill Brockhaus, are traveling to China in the next couple weeks to observe projects on the ground and meet with project partners. We are very excited about finalizing plans, and we highly anticipate the moving stories and images that inevitably come out of these trips. We will be sure to share both with you upon Eric and Bill's return. In the meantime, for an overview of a child's right's work in China, please visit: http://www.achildsright.org/china/
