Warm Fuzzies for World Water Day

By Kerry Freek

On World Water Day, here are a few of the cool efforts going on to raise awareness (and funds) for water issues and projects across the globe.

Picture this

From March 19 through March 30, Xylem Watermark will share a $1 donation between international non-profit Water For People and non-profit partner Mercy Corps for each time this infographic is shared via Facebook.

Suds for sanitation

Starting March 22, when you visit Facebook to play Engineers Without Borders’ Beer 2 Water game, two amazing things will happen. With your first play, $1 will be donated by Digital Rapids to help fund EWB’s innovative water and sanitation work in Malawi. Play again, and you could win a trip for two to Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany.

Broaden your focus

Beginning on March 22, Ecologos is hosting a series of weekly water documentaries in cooperation with Planet in Focus. The Toronto series will run until April 22 (Earth Day). For a complete program, visit the website.

One water to go, please

Los Angeles-based FaucetFace is giving away free glass “hose” design bottles to three lucky Water Canada readers. To win, use Twitter to post a picture of yourself drinking from your faucet or hose. Be sure to include @CanadianWater and@FaucetFace in your tweet. We’ll announce the winners on Twitter on March 23. Details here.
