Today, more than 1 billion people do not have access to safe drinking water. That is 1 in 6 of us.
What we take for granted as a way of life is a life or death situation for most of the worlds citizens.
That's why Surge (www.surgeforwater.org) is so important. A U.S. based 501(c)3 non-profit organization that improves access to clean, safe water for life. 100% of public donations directly fund sustainable water projects. Since its inception 2008, Surge has provided clean water to over 60,000 people. Surge's Clean water projects have helped thousands of families in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Pakistan, and Tanzania. Our directed funds have built fresh water wells, manufactured filters that provide clean water, and built sanitation systems. Surge’s educational programs reach thousands of people in our community each year. Surge holds an annual Water Summit in celebration of World Water Day with local Chicago youth.
Join us this Friday at FatPour Tapworks ( 2005 W. Division) for "Pour" a free event to introduce you to Surge and learn how you can make a difference. The event starts at 6PM and will have drink specials and prize drawings.
