Washing hands AND saving water at the same time
Washing hands AND saving water at the same time

Dear Supporters,

You receive this mail because you supported our project in the past. We received 192 donations so far for this project and we would like to thank all of you for these contributions – they helped us to improve water and hygiene conditions of more than 80,000 children in Bolivia so far.

We also want to inform you about a special opportunity: June 15 is Bonus Day! This means that all donations to projects on will be matched at 30% (up to $1000 per donor per project). For example, if you donate $100 to our project, another $30 will be contributed by the Global Giving Foundation. We would like to invite all our friends and supporters to make use of this special opportunity to make your donation have an even greater impact on local communities.

Within the ongoing project, safe drinking water and improved hygiene conditions can be provided for as little as $5 per child. Plus, we help local schools saving water: with our innovative mobile hand washing unit (see picture), a person can wash his/her hands with less than 0.2 liters of water. Most people on the planet use about 2 liters for this simple task: ten times more…

Among the people who donate to our project on June 15, a lucky winner will receive a special prize: A print of one of the picture of professional photographer Matteo Bertolino, who recently visited our project in Bolivia. We will keep you informed on this issue and on our project activities.

Thank you in advance and best regards from the whole team,
