Nearly 844 million people worldwide do not have reasonable access to safe water. Many must travel or wait in line for hours to get it, or have to settle for contaminated water and risk their health.
On March 22nd, in celebration of World Water Day, Cupanion was excited to raise awareness and make an impact with the Fill it Forward app! From March 22nd-29th every time participants refilled and scanned their Fill it Forward tags Cupanion “doubled up” and gave two cups of clean water to people in need.
With the Fill it Foward app together we helped give over 13,500 cups of clean water, doubling up to be over 27,000 cups of clean water given to people in need! Every cup given has helped fund meaningful projects around the world.
In addition, Cupanion also introduced its newest charitable partner Water First – an Ontario based charitable organization dedicated to helping First Nation communities across Canada solve local water challenges through education, training and meaningful collaboration.
World Water Day, celebrated every March 22nd, underscores the importance of clean, fresh water for all living beings. This year, we here at Cupanion commemorated the day by focusing on the importance of water and the need to perserve it and highlighed how ready access to safe water and sanitation can significantly advance the quality of life for communities around the world.
The Fill it Forward app made it easy to give back, together and contribute to a common goal of giving clean water to those in need. Every scan from March 22nd-29th helped contribute to the end goal of helping fund new clean water initiatives.
