#31DAYS Water, it’s essential for human life.
Living without access to clean, safe drinking water is hard to imagine. For millions of people across Sub-Saharan Africa, it’s a reality. Since 2008, Voss Foundation has been supporting clean water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) projects in this region. Access to clean water creates a ripple effect in the community. With each project we support, health improves, more children attend school, and communities develop. Voss Foundation is humbled to have made a difference in over 100,000 people’s lives in seven countries. But there’s still more work to be done.
This year, as part of VOSS Water’s annual #31Days to Make a Difference initiative, which runs from World Water Day (March 22) to Earth Day (April 22), VOSS is featuring displays in support of Voss Foundation at retailers, Jewel-Osco, Smart & Final, and Shoprite to bring awareness to the on-going need for WASH in Sub-Saharan Africa.
“World Water Day through Earth Day is a great time to educate people about global clean water issues,” says VOSS Water Chief Marketing Officer, Ken Gilbert. “We are running a national awareness campaign to draw attention to the issue of access to clean, safe water worldwide that affects so many people. Hopefully, this effort will encourage people to join Voss Foundation in helping to alleviate this problem.”
In addition, New York City radio station, 95.5 PLJ hosted Karaoke for a Cause with Gavin DeGraw on April 5 and Ocean Park Standoff on April 17 to bring further recognition to Voss Foundation. On air personalities, John Foxx and Ralphie Aversa went head-to-head with local PLJ fans to sing their hit songs. Contestants were awarded a $250 cash prize and a donation of $250 was made to Voss Foundation in the winner’s name. The audience also enjoyed an intimate concert with Gavin DeGraw and Ocean Park Standoff.
A huge thanks to VOSS for sponsoring this event!
