Last week, OWC Larry talked about charity: water, an organization dedicated to permanently supplying clean, safe drinking water to needy communities all around the world.
As part of our 25th Anniversary celebrations, OWC has set a goal of raising $125,000 total to support charity: water for the drilling of new wells in areas of most need. We’re one week into our campaign, and here’s a breakdown so far.
- For every new follower of OWC’s Twitter feed from November 1 to December 31, OWC is donating $1 to the fund. To date, we’ve contributed $472 this way, plus $4989 for our pre-celebration existing followers.
- We’ve also pledged a dollar for every entry in the OWC 25th Year Kickoff Celebration Sweepstakes, which has brought in $2924 so far.
- Last, but not least, we’re matching general donations up to $62,500, too. From 10/25 to 11/8, we contributed $5880 to the fund.
Combined with your donations, we’ve raised nearly $20,000 – about 16% of the way to our goal. That’s a great start, and with your help by following on Twitter, entering our Sweepstakes, making a direct contribution, and/or simply just telling others about this mission, we know we can reach our goal.
