On any given day, we are fortunate to take a morning shower, drink from our faucet and wash our dishes after supper.
On weekends, we’ll often find ourselves kayaking down the Harpeth River here in Middle Tennessee, playing in the local watering hole or hiking to find a waterfall.
It can be easy to take clean water for granted!
Unfortunately, there are over 663 million people around the world that do not have the same water conditions that we are so blessed and privileged to have here in the United States.
Many families live in rural areas, and women and children often have to spend several hours every day walking to find and collect water.
For children, this means they cannot attend school and receive an education.
For women, these conditions can be even worse and mothers cannot provide clean water for their babies.
Here at Harpeth Trading, we donate a portion of every purchase to charity: water, an organization that helps bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries.
Using the 100% model, this organization ensures that 100% of our donations fund water projects all around the world.
Thanks to charity: water, we can help families thrive!
Through building new wells and providing clean drinking water, women and children no longer have to spend their days seeking out water.
Children can attend school.
Women now have the opportunity to empower their future, and mothers can provide clean drinking water for their babies.
Families can grow crops and communities have the opportunity to flourish.
