Pledging For A Good Cause - #SIWWPledge

"Access to water isn't an end in itself. Access to water is access to education, access to work, access - above all -  to the kind of future we want for our own families, and all the members of our human family,"
                                                                                 --Matt Damon, co-founder of Water.org

In conjunction with the Singapore International Water Week 2014, SIWW and seven of its founding sponsors are raising money for Water.org through #SIWWPledge.
The Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) is the global platform to share and co-create innovative water solutions, and part of the strategic programme of the Singapore Government to grow the water industry and develop water technologies.


Do you know about one in nine people in the world lack access to clean water? Which is about 780 million people worldwide!!!

Co-founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, Water.org is a non-profit organisation that has transformed hundreds of communities in Africa, South Asia and Central America by providing access to safe water and sanitation. Matt Damon was awarded the World Economic Forum Crystal Award earlier this year for the organisation’s efforts to solve the global water crisis.


For every Like/Pledge made by online fans, #SIWWPledge sponsors will donate S$1 to Water.org.
1 Like = 1 Pledge = S$1

Together with Typical Ben, a group of us will be helping to garner pledge for #SIWWPledge!
Come down to Bugis Junction Water Fountain this Sat 14/06 , 2pm - 5pm, to support my team - as my team members will be reaching out to garner pledges from the public for #SIWWPledge. Sadly, I am most likely unable to join the team for this Street Activation Campaign but please still show your support, look out for Typical Ben.

This movement was introduced as part of SIWW's goal to rally the global community towards finding innovative and sustainable technological and financial solutions to meet safe water and sanitation needs globally, first of its kind in the global water space.
