This holiday season, you can give the gift of clean drinking water by donating a clean water filter to families struggling with water crisis. There are over 1 billion people around the world without access to clean water.
Clean water filters are the fastest, easiest, and most cost-efficient way of providing immediate access to clean water and bringing a community back to health. Each water filter produces up to 1 million gallons of clean water - enough for 3 families for up to 10 years.
Amazing things can happen when girls and women do not have to trek daily long distances to carry water home for their families. It means that children can go to school and learn. It means parents can work and contribute to the economy. And it means communities are healthy and able to work towards long-term solutions for their clean water needs.
Funding a clean water filter is a one-time $50 donation; you may choose to partially fund a filter as well. We will deliver the filters and W.A.S.H. (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) training on our next clean water mission.
You may also donate on behalf of your friends and family as a holiday gift that gives back! We will email you a personalized holiday card in your gift recipient's name. If you're interested, contact email@example.com to make arrangements.
When you donate to Veterans Without Orders, you give more than just clean water. You give veterans the opportunity to continue their service through our veteran-led clean water missions. You give local women the training and empowerment to solve clean water issues in their communities. And you give Gold Star families the gift of honoring their loved ones through mission dedications.
The Sawyer PointOne is a highly effective water filter that can be set up in 5 minutes and requires only a 5-gallon container and filtration kit. It is simple enough that adults of any educational background can understand how to use it. No electricity and no complicated maintenance are required.
Access to clean water through simple, home-based filtration will yield almost immediate improvements in health and vitality. Our clean water missions are not compromised by power factors or accessibility issues. They serve to strengthen rather than divide communities, and they engage the recipients as full and equal participants.
Starting with our first mission to Haiti in 2015, we have been dedicating each clean water mission in the name of a military serviceman or woman who was killed in action during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. We believe that by doing this, we honor fallen individuals and allow their memories to live on through the gift of clean water given to those most in need.
All mission donations go directly to Honor Project costs. These include the purchase of water filters, and travel and logistics for each veteran-led mission. The beauty of our mission model is that veterans can transport as many water filters as you help us fund.
