$1 million to support Water Missions International

The United Nations calculates there are more deaths per year from dirty drinking water than from all wars and global violence combined. Each year, more than 1.5 million children aged 5 and under die from contaminated water. This Christmas we might not be able to end wars but we can save lives when we give the gift of clean water. If you’re looking for a cause this Christmas, we hope you’ll consider partnering with Lynn and Foster and Water Missions International. The Friess Family has announced a $1 million challenge grant—encouraging others to join in by donating to Water Missions International as part of their Christmas giving. WMI seeks to give drink to the thirsty by deploying its engineering expertise to create sustainable water systems in developing countries.

Join the Friess Family Million Dollar Challenge by calling Water Missions International at (866) 280-7107, mailing checks payable to “Water Missions International” PO Box 31258, Charleston, South Carolina, 29417 with memo “Challenge Grant”, or you can donate online.
