Clean, safe drinking water changes everything.
663 million people around the world don’t have access to clean drinking water. That’s one in 10! The Smile Generation has decided to help put a stop to this water crisis. Since 2009, The Smile Generation has brought clean drinking water to over 150,000 people by raising over $3.5 million in eight countries. In addition to making donations to charity: water for every patient who gets new braces, offices hold annual drives to raise funds for this effort.
We’ve seen first-hand the new-found freedom bestowed to a village that once had to spend almost an entire day’s time collecting water. Women can get jobs, spend more time with their families, and make a difference in their communities. Kids can get an education instead of walking for hours each day to get water. They can then graduate and go on to change their world in even more ways—because clean, safe water really does change everything.
