Clay Aiken – Making The World A Better Place

The UNICEF Tap Project is a nationwide campaign that provides clean water and adequate sanitation to children around the world. With just $5, UNICEF can give one child safe drinking water for 200 days. Currently, UNICEF works in more than 100 countries around the world to improve access to safe water and sanitation facilities in schools and communities and to promote safe hygiene practices. Since 1990, thanks to the work of UNICEF and its partners, more than 2 billion people have gained access to clean drinking water.

No one can survive without water. Yet nearly 800 million people do not have safe, clean water to drink, and more than 2.5 billion people live without a proper toilet. The lack of these basic necessities isn’t just inconvenient—it’s lethal. Every day, nearly 4,000 children under the age of five die of water-borne diseases. Through the UNICEF Tap Project and your social network, you can help stop these needless deaths.

The UNICEF Tap Project now lives on its own Facebook app, making it even easier to join the campaign. You can quickly donate to, support, and share the Tap Project—turning your social network into a water network! Here are three steps to join the Tap Project and help provide clean water to children around the world.

  1. Visit UNICEFTapProject.org to access the water network.
  2. Choose to donate $5 to the UNICEF Tap Project via text message or PayPal. With just $5, UNICEF can give one child safe drinking water for 200 days.
  3. Choose two Facebook friends to receive water and the opportunity to donate.

Join us, let your family and friends know about the UNICEF Tap Project, and help us get to a day where ZERO children are deprived of clean water.

The Tap Project has been an active concern of Clay Aiken. As an Ambassador for UNICEF, Clay made a great video about the children of the world and the Tap Project in March 18, 2008. He hit the entertainment media and TV shows like Entertainment Tonight and  talked to each of them about this wonderful project. It is wonderful to see a celebrity who is passionate about making the world a better place.  Take a look!

  6. Clay is a very compassionate person…and it shows in all the work he does with Unicef. I remember all of these video's from his many travels around the world. I am very proud to be a fan of this man.

  8. Thanks as always for sharing, Musicfan123! Glad to see that Clay is a very STRONG supporter of this! Just putting my two cents in: Last picture: NOT digging the blonde locks. I thought he looked better in black locks & whatever colors he had during AI, MOAM, MCWL & ATDW. But I will say, he looks sex-ay in glasses & argyle!

    See You Later,

    Ellison
