Xylem Partners With Water for People and Mercy Corps to Raise Money
Will donate $1 for every share of its 'Solving Water' infographic via Facebook
To celebrate World Water Day 2012, Xylem Watermark will share a $1 donation between international nonprofit Water For People and nonprofit partner Mercy Corps for each infographic share via Facebook. Between March 19 and 30, those interested in sharing the “Solving Water” image can do so by visiting XylemWatermark.com/WASH.
"Water For People has a long-standing relationship with Xylem Watermark, and we are grateful to them for their commitment to raising funds for Water For People on this upcoming World Water Day," said Ned Breslin, CEO of Water For People. "This infographic will help spread the word about our commitment to reaching every family, school and clinic in the 30 districts we work in globally, with the focus on ensuring sustainable systems are in place so this access lasts forever, without increased water and sanitation aid. We believe Everyone Forever provides a practical and scalable model that can, eventually, fully eradicate water poverty in the countries where we work – which is our ultimate goal. We are thankful for Xylem's adamant support for our Everyone, Forever campaign."
Xylem Inc. has partnered with Water For People since 2008 as part of the company’s corporate citizenship and social investment program, Xylem Watermark. Together, Xylem and Water For People have delivered sustainable water solutions, including water access and sanitation and hygiene education, to more than 350,000 people in India, Peru, Honduras and Guatemala.
The “Solving Water” infographic demonstrates the power of water, sanitation and hygiene to change lives because when clean water is nearby, children, especially girls, can go to school instead of fetching water.
