Join me for a #cleanwater Photo Challenge #PGmom

What have you done today that has used clean water? I’ve used water to shower, to make my coffee, to wash my hands, wash dishes, do laundry and drink, of course! I’m very lucky that in Canada, I have access to clean water that is free of disease. I never have to worry that myself or my children will become ill when they are thirsty or by simply washing their hands. I know I take for granted that I have fresh, clean water at my disposal when I need it. Sadly, it is estimated that for one billion people, clean drinking water is a problem.

The P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water program helps provide clean drinking water to those that need it through water purification technology created by P&G. One small package is able to turn 10 litres of dirty water into clean drinkable water in 30 minutes. To date, more than seven billion litres of clean drinking water have been provided by humanitarian organizations across the globe using P&G packets, helping to save an estimated 39,000 lives in more than 75 countries.

Watch the video below to see how powerful these small packages are!

This past spring, P&G and Walmart teamed up and committed to donating one day of clean water** for every P&G product purchased at Walmart or Walmart.ca during the month of April. During that month, Canadians rallied together and in the end, P&G donated 8.6 million days of clean water to the Children’s Safe Drinking Water Fund as part of its Clean Water initiative.  Since May 1, more than 20 P&G products, including Tide, Pampers, Duracell, Dawn and Pantene have continued to generate a donation equivalent to one day of clean drinking water**.

To help bring the program even closer to its goal of donating 25 million litres of water in a 12 month-period, P&G and Walmart will once again open the program up to include every P&G product from July 16 – 31, 2014***. Your participation can help us reach our goal!
