Earlier last month in our blog entitled, Planting A Seed, we talked about our valued partnership with the charity organization, Wine To Water. This partnership began 12 years ago in 2011, with a small donation of $75 and taking the first steps towards providing clean water for all. We’re thankful for this partnership and take pride in announcing that in November 2023, that seed has blossomed to 1 million dollars in donations!
A Beautiful Journey
The journey to 1 million has been a beautiful one. It started with our Chief Marketing Officer, Dee Ray, walking a mile with a dollar donated to everyone she could complete. It then graduated to involving children in local schools and educating them about the water quality conditions of children in other countries.
What we take for granted, like the ability to go to our bathrooms and easily access clean water for showers or to the kitchen sink for cooking, in impoverished communities they must walk miles and search for it. This was a revelation to students and inspired them to want to help. Wine To Water’s Founder, Doc Hendley, took it to the next level by contacting other schools and incorporating a global audience.
But it didn’t end there. Over the years we’ve been fortunate to have several opportunities to make a difference. In 2021, we hosted the charity organization at our offices, where we built Sawyer water filters. These filters can provide a family with clean water for up to 10 years if they’re maintained.
In 2022, our Brand Content Manager, Katie Hawkes, had the chance to travel to one of Wine To Water’s chapters in Nepal. She helped start a project by digging trenches for water lines and constructing water tanks for a remote community in the mountains.
In Katie’s own words, “One of the most impactful moments during the trip was when a 95-year-old woman who has lived in the community her whole life shared that her time was coming to an end soon, but she was happy to see that the generations after would have access to clean water.”
And that’s why we enjoy this journey with Wine To Water – the opportunity to positively impact people’s lives.
The Journey Continues
Recently, Wine To Water achieved providing 2 million people with clean water, something that we’re proud to have a part in. However, the journey to ensure every person in this amazing world of ours has access to clean water continues.
You may not realize it, but you might have already been involved! For every refrigerator filter purchased, we donate a portion to the charity organization. If you’ve bought a fridge filter, you’ve lent a helping hand. We also remain committed to giving Wine To Water a minimum of $15,000 a month. With these actions, filters are provided, impoverished communities are improved, and lives are touched. Here’s to many more years of our collaboration!
