663 MILLION PEOPLE IN THE WORLD LIVE WITHOUT CLEAN WATER.
To put that into perspective, that's twice the population of the United States. Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
It truly is a "Silent Emergency". Many women and children spend 6+ hours a day walking to and from the local water source to gather water for their family. This time spent walking often restricts children from attending school. Even worse, the water that they are gathering often contains diseases that could kill them or their loved ones.
The cycle will continue over and over again if we don't do something about it!
HOW CAN WE CONQUER THE WATER CRISIS?
We are doing our part to provide water for a thirsty world.
YOU CAN HELP US IN 3 WAYS:
BUY - Shop our sneakers. Each pair sold provides 20 years of clean drinking water to someone in need.
SHARE - Share the need. Share our story. Share our mission. Help us get the word out to your friends, family, co-workers, barbers, and the kid next to you on the subway. Sharing costs nothing and it does wonders for worldwide awareness!
GIVE - We give all of our money donations through Los Angeles based non-profit, Water Wells for Africa. You can give directly through them on their website, www.waterwellsforafrica.org.
The time to help is now. Too many innocent lives are taken every day because of the Silent Emergency. Click the links below to do your part!
