The UNICEF Tap Project Is Back!

It’s World Water Month! And we are once again launching the UNICEF Tap Project. Only this time around, we are doing things a little differently.

Since 2007, the Tap Project has raised more than $3.5 million to provide clean water to millions of children around the world. But still—almost 4,000 children under five die every day from waterborne illnesses. By joining the UNICEF Tap Project, you can help stop these needless deaths.

The UNICEF Tap Project now lives on its own Facebook app, making it even easier to join the campaign. You can quickly donate to, support, and share the Tap Project—turning your social network into a water network! Here are three steps to join the Tap Project and help provide clean water to children around the world.

  1. Visit UNICEFTapProject.org to access the water network.
  2. Choose to donate $5 to the UNICEF Tap Project via text message or PayPal. With just $5, UNICEF can give one child safe drinking water for 200 days.
  3. Choose two Facebook friends to receive water and the opportunity to donate.

Join us, let your family and friends know about the UNICEF Tap Project, and help us get to a day where ZERO children are deprived of clean water.

    Terrific initiative by UNICEF. As a cultural anthropologist working in Papua New Guinea, I know well the terrible toll of waterborne illnesses on young children.

    This is a great! Having experienced the effects of unsanitary water first hand following the earthquake in Haiti I can speak directly to the importance of access to and the availability of clean water. During my time in Haiti I had the opportunity to travel to a remote village where flooding from the water surge had left massive destruction. The was NO clean water. We distributed iodine tablets and brought as much bottled water as we could but unfortunately people became sick and we were unable to help many. I know that this was an extreme circumstance but I was able to witness the effects on health as a result.

    I think this initiative is fantastic and the fact that such a minute amount of money can make such a big difference in the lives of people around the world, makes it it an even more spectacular project.

    Thank you for all that you do!!
