Pledge Your Birthday For World Water Day

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013 | Author:

It’s a fairly common birthday ritual. You go out on the town, and you let your friends generously buy you drinks while celebrating the occasion. This is always a very nice gesture, but for your birthday this year, why not add a twist and let your friends and family buy an even more important drink?

March 22 is recognized around the globe as World Water Day. And charity: water is doing its part to spread the word by asking for birthday pledges this year to help raise funds to build clean water projects around the world. Pledging your birthday is simple. All you have to do is visit charity: water’s birthday pledge page and sign up with your email and birthday. When the date nears, charity: water will send you a reminder with info on how to start fundraising.

You may already be familiar with charity: water from OWC’s 25th Year Kickoff Celebration campaign with the organization which helped raise more than $1.5 million last year. Now, OWC and charity: water want to continue the effort and help bring attention to World Water Day. The day was first declared by the UN in 1993, and has been recognized each year since. The goal for the day is to draw attention to critical water issues of our era. And in order to show support, the general public is encouraged to not use their taps throughout the entire day. You can also help spread the word about World Water Day by using the hashtag #WorldWaterDay with your Tweets.

So make sure you do your part and turn off the tap on March 22. And instead of letting those close to you buy you a beverage for your birthday this year, take the chance to help those who are truly in need of a clean drink.
