Is yours clean?

17 Apr

For my social media class (the same one that I started this blog for) we are doing a project where we have the goal of raising $5,000 for charity: water in a month. This incredible organization raises money to fund clean water projects in developing countries. One well costs $5,000, hence our goal. You can see an example of a live drill here.

To kick off the project, we decided to host a bake sale complete with many water themed goodies.

The night before the bake sale, a roommate of mine knew that I had a bake sale the next day and decided to surprise me by making the cookies for me. I could not have asked for a better treat or more helpful gesture on a stressful night. I also loved finding out that a another classmate’s friend also helped her with blue rice krispie treats. What great friends we have!

Anyway, the great thing is, is that the treats were a huge hit! We ended up raising approximately $180 over the course of two days for our “Is yours clean?” campaign.

Here are some of our delicious goodies courtesy of Sarah Varner from Bun Voyage.

And finally, a few of the lovely ladies of #5990H.

We would greatly appreciate any bit of donation you would like to give. To donate, check out our My Charity Water page.

Remember: $20 can give one person clean water for 20 years. Any little bit helps!
