BECOME A CLEAN WATER ADVOCATE
SPREADING AWARENESS OF THE CLEAN WATER CRISIS
Our main goal at Geo-
Knowledge is the key.
The more people know about the water crisis, the more we can accomplish. The individual projects are small but the number is huge. For example, a big project would be: providing a single drinking water well in a village of six hundred people. And a small project is a filter system that provides clean water to a family of five in a remote area.
Approximately two thousand projects have to be completed to help one million people. And with 800 million people who do not have access to clean, safe drinking water, we have a lot of work to do. And together we can do our part to make this world a better place!
SIGN UP TO BE A CLEAN WATER ADVOCATE
We'll send you some good information and answer any questions you may have.
START YOUR OWN AWARENESS CAMPAIGN
Working together, we can begin to help the 800 million people who do not have access to clean, safe drinking water. These people live on less than a dollar a day and do not have the power or position to help themselves. By joining forces with Geo-
The first step is to inform all your friends and family of the problem and how they can help. Use every social media outlet you have, including school and work. Raising awareness can do a lot!
Diseases kill 2.2 million people every year and the majority are children, as their bodies aren't strong enough to fight diarrhea, E-
Women and their children are the ones who travel for miles every day to collect drinking water for their families. This task takes hours to complete which could be time they spend learning in schools or starting small businesses to help support their families. And the water they carry for miles is not clean and this is why so many children die every year. About 800 million people do not have access to clean drinking water.
MOST OPEN WATERWAYS ARE VERY POLLUTED WITH WATERBORNE DISEASES
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN PEOPLE'S LIVES
The place you work could start a campaign
Check with your company to see if they would like to raise funds and donate. If everyone in the organization contributed, many thousands can have access to clean water. (see Business Involvement)
Start your own fundraising campaign
You and your friends can fundraise by selling cookies, having a book sale or giving up birthday gifts for clean water projects.
It doesn't matter if you raise a lot of money. Remember $20 can give a person clean drinking water for several years. Helping just one person live a healthy life is a lot!!!by Patrick Cox

My birthday is coming up and if possible could you send a donation to give clean water instead of buying me a gift. This donation is going to help people in developing countries obtain clean, safe drinking water. Today some 800 million who do not have clean water now.
