This summer, you helped us bring clean water to families in the coffee-growing country of Rwanda. Now you can help us reach communities in the birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia, where more than half of the population lacks access to clean water. As part of our commitment to bring clean water to 1 million people by 2020, we are partnering with charity: water, a nonprofit organization that provides clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries. We’re proud to announce that Keurig Green Mountain, Inc has made a donation to charity: water. Now, it can be unlocked by fundraising campaigns. Here’s how it works: every dollar raised for Ethiopia unlocks a donation from Keurig for the same amount, up to $740,000 through December 31st* at midnight. Together, we can help twice as many people in Ethiopia!
The funds unlocked from Keurig will provide clean water to more than 21,000 people. Together with the community of charity: water supporters across the country, we will double this impact and provide clean water to more than 42,000 people.
Start a fundraising campaign today at www.charitywater.org.
*Any remaining funds that have not been unlocked by 12/31/14 will be applied to the charity: water’s field work within January of 2015.
