Efforts Continue For charity: water

Saturday, December 22nd, 2012 | Author:

There may be just a few days left until Christmas, but there’s still time to give this holiday season and make a difference in the world. The OWC 25th Year Kickoff Celebration fundraising effort to raise $125,000 for charity: water continues, and with our latest donation match contribution, we’re closing in on the halfway point of that goal. The $45,634 raised through OWC’s efforts has helped bring clean water to 2,281 people so far, but many more need our help.

On average, every $20 raised by charity: water brings clean, safe drinking water to one person meaning any $20 donation you make combined with the OWC match will change two lives forever. OWC will match these donations until December 31, so to take advantage, you’ll have to act soon. And OWC will also donate $1 for each new Twitter follower it gets through December 31, making it easier than ever to help this cause.

Friday, November 30th, 2012 | Author:

Although Other World Computing’s “25th Year Kickoff Celebration” sweepstakes comes to a close at 11:59 p.m. EST tonight, our effort to raise $125,000 for charity: water will keep on rolling. Here’s this week’s update.

  • First, we’ll mention the 432 new entries in our OWC 25th Year Kickoff Celebration Sweepstakes, bringing our “dollar an entry” pledge to $5,315. And there’s still time to help add to this total by entering our sweepstakes, but you’ll have to act fast!
  • And thanks to our Black Friday, CyberMonday and #GivingTuesday $5 Accelerator, we’ve donated $5,385 for our new Twitter followers in the last week bringing the total to $11,545 so far.
  • And finally, we had an additional $6,480 in independent pledges to our charity: water portal page, which brings us to a total of $13,901 in donations that we’ll be matching.

Even though our Sweepstakes ends today, you can still help us out through December 31 by following our Twitter feed or by donating directly.
