There are many places in the world were children can die from drinking water. In fact, Waterborne illnesses are the second leading cause of preventable childhood deaths in the world'??killing nearly 4,000 children every day. Although is this devastating, there is also something we can do to help with the award-winning UNICEF Tap Project.
Through this project, thousands of volunteers, restaurants, partners and individuals across the nation can help provide the world'??s children with safe, clean water. During World Water Week, March 19-25, dining patrons can pay $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free at participating restaurants. With $1, UNICEF can provide a child with access to clean, safe water for 40 days.
To help get the word out, Lenny Kravitz -- GRAMMY award-winning singer-songwriter, record producer and actor '?? is lending his support for The UNICEF Tap Project. Kravitz'??s participation in The UNICEF Tap Project is part of a larger global effort by UNICEF to improve the lives of millions of children and their families around the world through water, sanitation and hygiene programs.
