Thank you to the incredible students at Long Island School for the Gifted for completing our Laps for Taps Challenge yesterday! Students walked laps around the school with containers of water to experience the walk that occupies 40 billion hours every year for those without clean water access in Africa.

To turn their efforts into impact, over 200 students raised more than $5,500 to support clean water for students living in Mundame, Southwest Cameroon. 

Thank you to Blue Rain Media, Hellma, and Pack H2O for making the walk possible!

We are so proud to have participated in Live Below the Line this year with 100+ advocates from 8 countries covering 5 continents. Our supporters and advocates raised over $14,000 to support clean water and economic empowerment for 22,000 people in Cameroon!

Our advocates lived on $1.50/day for 5 days to raise awareness for the 1.2 billion people on our planet living in extreme poverty. Some interesting meals and moments came in pursuit of the challenge:

We were so lucky to have incredible advocates rally for our campaign this year! We had advocates sell jewelry and throw parties for our cause. Our advocate, Stephanie was featured on Global Poverty Project’s blog (bit.ly/1g2KTvu)
, and Dylan won Live Below the Line’s “Two on Tuesday” Challenge and will be flying to New Zealand for the “Be The Change” conference.

Our campaign is still open till May 30th and we’re only $844 away from our goal. Can you help us share our campaign?:  http://bit.ly/wclbtl
