Raise your glass and fill hundreds more! That is motto set forth by UNICEF for their upcoming TAP Project taking place during World Water Week from March 19-25. The UNICEF Tap Project is a nationwide campaign that provides the world’s children access to safe, clean water.
Why clean water? Nearly 900 million people worldwide lack access to clean water. Waterborne illnesses are the second highest cause of preventable childhood deaths worldwide.
During the week of March 19-25, 2012, restaurants all across the United States will encourage their patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free. Two restaurants in our community are participating in this exciting endeavor, Blue Dog Bakery and Café at 2868 Frankfort Avenue and Porcini at 2730 Frankfort Avenue.
Please come out (and tell ALL of your friends) and support these restaurants. Please join them in their efforts to contribute to the mission of UNICEF: To reduce the number of children dying daily from preventable causes, including water related diseases, bringing the toll of 21,000 a day down to ZERO!
