In recognition of World Water Day, we’re proud to announce Aura’s continued investment in our partnership with charity: water.
Water is one of earth’s most precious and crucial resources, and it’s unfortunate that we live in a world where 663 million people live without access to clean water. That number is tough to digest, but to break it down, that’s twice the population of the United States or one in ten people.
So what can we do about this? That’s where charity: water comes in. As proud Well Members for over three years, Aura’s founders hold charity: water and the work they do close to their hearts.
For those who aren’t familiar with their model, it’s actually pretty simple: private donors cover all charity: water operating costs, so 100% of your donation goes directly to funding water projects. Beyond that, charity: water works with local experts and community members to find the best and most sustainable solutions for each area. Whether it’s a well, a piped system, a BioSand Filter, or a system for harvesting rainwater, the solution will support long-term sustainable development.
We’ve created a new set of 750 limited edition crystal blue frames, each engraved with the charity: water logo and its edition number. $60 will be donated to charity: water for every frame sold, which will provide clean water for two people. The funding raised will go directly toward 1,000 people in need.
Once a quarter, Aura will publish a new photo to the frame that was taken by an on-site charity: water photographer. We’ll follow up with an email telling the story behind the photo displayed on your frame, focusing on the impact clean drinking water has on that specific community. You’ll get a glimpse of the strides Aura + charity: water is making in bringing clean water to developing countries and expanding our understanding of global health issues.
Having access to clean water is one of life’s most basic necessities. Help Aura + charity: water build sustainable, community-owned water projects around the world. Purchase a frame today and join us in making a difference in real people’s lives.
