The Water Challenge

7 days left - until I drink just water

If you know me well - you know how fond I am of a nice brew or the beer and green tea variety. 

Green tea is what gets me through my work day - sometime I manage up to 6 cups! 

And beer if what I look forward to after a long day - at the office, on the bike or in the garden. 

This March I am giving these up and drinking ONLY water for all 31 days! Last year I committed to two weeks, this year I'm upping the ante. 

Why am I doing this?

To raise money for Water Aid 

WaterAid's vision is to reach everyone, everywhere with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene within a generation. 

Not too much of an ask. But globally 1 in 3 people on the planet don't have a decent toilet of their own. 1 in 9 don't have clean water close to home.

Please donate to our fundraising page to contribute to WaterAid's amazing work. 

The more people that know about WaterAid, the more we can achieve together. Please spread the word by sharing our fundraising page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!

Why I've accepted the Water Challenge

1 in 9 people worldwide don’t have access to a clean water source close to home. But as we all know, water is essential for life and good health. That's why I am challenging myself this March to make water my only beverage. I'll be improving my health, while raising money to help more people enjoy the benefits of clean water.

WaterAid will reach everyone, everywhere with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene within a generation. This vision inspires me, and I hope it inspires you too.

Please donate to my fundraising page to contribute to WaterAid's amazing work. For just $70, WaterAid could provide clean water to a child, while $350 could help provide clean water to a family.

The more people that know about WaterAid, the more we can achieve together. Please spread the word by sharing my fundraising page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
