PUR Giveaway for an Amazing Cause!!

4,000 children in developing countries die every day from illness and disease related to unsafe drinking water. PUR along with its not-for-profit partner, the Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program (CSDW), is committed to alleviating this global crisis by providing clean drinking water to those in need. When you buy a PUR, you’re not only helping your family get clean water, but a family across the world. Every PUR system purchase provides 10 liters of clean drinking water to children in the developing world through the CSDW Program.

This month, PUR is partnering with “Summit on the Summit” (SOTS), a celebrity climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro featuring Jessica Biel, Alexandra Cousteau and others that is raising awareness and funds for clean drinking water efforts. The climb started yesterday (January 7th)! Dr. Greg Allgood, Founder and Director of CSDW, is joining the climb as the water authority, educating the climbers on the global water crisis and what is being done to help. Go HERE to find out more about this special climb!

We can all help too, and here's how:

A portion of the proceeds from the climb will go to benefit the CSDW Program. Anyone in the U.S. can join the climb and the clean drinking water cause by purchasing a PUR water pitcher or faucet mount filtration system. One purchase of a PUR system will donate a week’s worth of clean drinking water to children in need in the developing world.

Donations from purchases of PUR water pitchers and faucet mounts will go towards the CSDW Program’s goal of providing more than 4 billion liters of clean drinking water in the developing world from 2007-2012, helping to preventing an estimated 160 million days of diarrheal illness and saving an estimated 20,000 lives. To date, the CSDW program has delivered over 1.8 billion liters of clean drinking water to those in need.

In an effort to help spread awareness about the clean water crisis and this climb for a great cause, PUR would like to offer one of you - my fabulous readers - a PUR water pitcher!

  3. I'm thankful to have access to clean water so me and my family don't have to worry about water borne illnesses and having to deal with the sickness b/c of it. I'm also thankful b/c otherwise, we would prolly have shorter lifespans...water is the basic need for all living things.

  6. I'm so grateful to have clean water. I know that every tap with yield water for whatever need I have. My mother keeps saying " there's no substitute for water" and she is right. What would we do, if we turned the water handle; and nothing came out?
