Many of us have no idea what it’s like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink—even the water in our toilets is clean! But many people around the world don't have that luxury. Every day, 5,000 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. But it doesn't have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections, and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.
Pirate Coast Paddle Company is not only passionate about paddleboarding, but is also committed to using the small business to CHANGE THE WORLD by bringing clean water to the one billion people who are living without it.
In 2010 Pirate Coast Paddle Company had the first Paddle for Water, and raised $5,300. The funds allowed Pirate Coast to build the first clean water well in the Central African Republic.
Paddle for Water 2012, raised $11,120 which will build two water wells for villages in dire need, bringing clean and safe drinking water to over 500 people.
And, Pirate Coast Paddle Company isn’t stopping. Paddle for Water 2014 is here!
Let’s CHANGE THE WORLD TOGETHER.
