"Oh my goodness! The toilet works!"

 

When was the last time you were excited to flush the toilet? Maybe never? Something so small, that we often take for granted, is a big deal to families without running water. 

Here's a little clip from our recent water system installation at Lindsey Johnson's house. Lindsey is 87 and struggled to get to the outhouse, especially during the cold winter months. Look how excited her daughter, Brenda, is to tell her mom that she can use the toilet inside! "She'll be so proud."

Get inspired by these people sharing the Navajo Water Project all over the US!

 

Across the country, groups of people - from girl scouts to sailboat captains - have changed lives by sharing the Navajo Water Project and raising funds for American families living without clean water.

Here are just a few of their inspiring stories:

1. Girl Scout Cadette Troop 23030 raised nearly $1000 by distributing blue Hershey's Kisses around their school, collecting donations and spreading the word. Check out the fundraising page they built >>

2. Students from the Indian Community School of Milwaukee tracked their water use for three days and did a series of exercises exploring water in their school and community. Together, they raised $600 for the Baby Lisa project. Check out the letters they sent us about their project >>

3. Sailboat Racers from Team Blue H2O raised $8000 by telling their fans about the Navajo Water Project at summer boat races on the Great Lakes. They're up to it again this year! See a picture of their incredible racing boat >>

 

Countless Women's Organisations, Rotary Clubs and Bible Study Groups are changing the lives of American families in need of clean, running water.
