March 22 - World Water Day

You knew that of course, right?

In honor of the big day (when we think about water conservation/try to conserve that water/think about how lucky we are to have it flowing clean and drinkable from our taps), the Tap Project is launching World Water Day: Pay $1, Quench a Kid's Thirst for 40 Days

Many NYC restaurants have been participating, meaning you can eat at their restaurant, you drink their tap water, and instead of getting it for free you pay $1 for it. That $1 goes directly toward providing a child with fresh drinking water for 40 days.

The Tap Project kicked off on March 16, but we've still got a couple prime eating-out days ahead of us (it ends on the 22nd), so buy yourself a nice dinner and a cool glass of water at one of these many excellent and low- to high-priced restaurants throughout the five boroughs.

More than 5,000 children are dying every day as a result of water-borne diseases
For each dollar spent on water and sanitation projects, the projected return on investment is from $3 to $34
