Clean Water Video by Jean-Michel Cousteau

Haiti - Drinking & Bathing in River
Haiti - Drinking & Bathing in River

Clean water is a luxury currently impacting 2 billion people in the world.  In Haiti, cholera has claimed the lives of over 7,000 people and it has been estimated that 250,000 Haitians may contract cholera this year alone.  Jean-Michel Cousteau stated that cholera can spread through the coral reefs and already cholera has spread to the Domican Republic, Cuba and South Florida.  Meanwhile plastic waste is creating environmental disasters the size of Texas in the Pacific ocean and in many places around the world.

Jean-Michel recently discussed how these 2 different social problems could be aided in part by socially innovative products like WaterBrick.  How can you help?  Check out Jean-Michel's video link attached and help us continue to help those in need in Haiti by contributing and sharing our mission with family, friends and colleagues.  If there are other ways you can help, call us at 877-420-9283.

This project is being run by a socially-oriented for-profit company.

From time to time, GlobalGiving posts projects run by socially-oriented for-profit companies, whose work includes charitable activities in the public interest. ALL projects on GlobalGiving have a bonafide charitable purpose, and are required to submit extensive documentation and complete a thorough application process. GlobalGiving reviews all applications, and vets the projects to ensure they are legitimate, well-run, and satisfy IRS guidelines for international grantmaking as well as the new voluntary guidelines for anti-terrorism set forth in the Patriot Act. Provided projects meet all these criteria, the IRS allows public foundations such as GlobalGiving to make grants in support of this work.

Projects in this category are required to undergo an expenditure review - meaning they must detail the charitable activities for which they are requesting funding, and provide an actual review of how the funds were spent.
