Today almost a billion people in the world don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. That’s one in eight people on the planet.

charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of donations go to directly fund sustainable water solutions in areas of greatest need. Just $20 can give one person clean water for 20 years. A group of private donors, foundations and sponsors help pay for the everyday costs of running the organization. If you purchase any artwork from PhilanthropART in the month of January, 100% of your donation will go straight to water projects.

“Water contributes to poverty alleviation in many ways – through sanitation services, water supply, affordable food and enhanced resilience of poor communities to disease, climate shocks and environmental degradation.”
3rd UN World Water Development Report, 2009
