Sometimes it’s easy to forget that not everybody has clean and accessible water. UNICEF’s Tap Project works to bring awareness, as well as water, to children around the world.
World Water Week is March 22-28, and you can help support the cause by stopping in at participating restaurants and paying $1 for tap water you usually get for free. Each dollar raised will provide a child with clean drinking water for 40 days, according to UNICEF. It’s pretty amazing how far a dollar can go.
Plus, if you want to do a little more, many cities will host a Tap Water walk on March 22 where walkers will carry up to a gallon of water a mile in a “gesture of solidarity for children worldwide who suffer from a lack of readily available clean water.”
In Wilmington, Delaware, 6th grade students at the Montessori school are active volunteers in gaining participation from local restaurants in the Wilmington area.

The Tap Project is a favorite of Clay Aiken. As an Ambassador for UNICEF, he made a great video about the children of the world and the Tap Project. Take a look. It is wonderful to see a celebrity who is passionate about making the world a better place.
