Every April, advocates from around the world join the "Shower Strike" to raise awareness of global water issues. Without clean water, education cannot thrive, gender inequality grows, economic activity becomes stagnant, and development is stifled. Today, 2.2 BILLION people worldwide lack reliable access to safely managed drinking water (with about 2 MILLION being in the U.S.) *
Participate in this annual event in one of two ways:
💧 Go on a "shower strike" for one week (when it's convenient) OR carry a container of water and walk outside each day for a week to experience what African women and girls do to find and transport water to their home. If the average 10-minute shower utilizes ~25 gallons of water you'll conserve 175 gallons of water the week you don't shower!
💧Take your participation to a new level. Well Aware's "Shower Strike" contains options to fundraise, if you're so inclined. Specific dates are April 19-25. All proceeds will go to water projects in East Africa. For details 👉 https://wellawareworld.org/shower-strike/
