Selena Gomez may be busy shooting her upcoming movie “Spring Breakers,” but she has time to spread the good word about World Water Week and the Unicef Tap Project, which raises funds to bring clean water to children around the globe. In her a recent blog post, Selena wrote the following:
In my travels with UNICEF I have seen the devastating impact that lack of safe water can have on children. In fact, thousands of them die every day simply because they can’t access this precious resource. Others do not have the chance to go to school because they spend hours walking each day to gather water for their families.
The UNICEF Tap Project is a great opportunity for all of us to help change this reality. Funds raised this year will bring clean, safe drinking water to children in Vietnam, Togo, Mauritania, and Cameroon — countries where it’s desperately needed. And, just a little goes a very long way.
It’s easy to get involved. By paying just $1 for tap water that you would normally drink for free at participating restaurants, clean water will be provided for 40 children in need. Since 2007, the UNICEP Tap Project has raised $3 million to provide lifesaving water and sanitation to kids around the world. And you can too, if you go out to eat this week — find out if your restaurant of choice is participating in the UNICEF Tap Project. BTW, thousands of restaurants across the country are participating so hopefully your local greasy spoon is too!
