What do you know about the ongoing Global Water Crisis?
Fast facts:
1. More than 800 million people lack basic drinking water access
2. 6x the population of the US lives without a household water connection
3. More people die from unsafe water than from all forms of violence,
including war

This spring, the Green Team is partnering with Gravity Water
<https://www.gravitywater.org/>, a non-profit dedicated to increasing
global clean water access for schools through rainwater harvesting,
storage, and filtration systems. We are running a fundraiser campaign to
build clean water systems for students at the Tả Củ Tỷ 2 Primary and
Secondary School in Bắc Hà, Vietnam. For just $8, you can provide a child
with safe drinking water! Totally worth it.

Learn how you can contribute to the campaign HERE
