(Mrs. Bontrager chose two art project winners from CES’s DaVinci’s Art Club to help with an event held at Macy’s to promote the Tap Project sponsored by Armani and Unicef. Pictured are fourth graders Delaney Peters on the right and Katelyn Johnson on the left with their drawings of children drinking dirty water in poverty stricken countries. They each received a movie theatre ticket, a water bottle donated by Rabb Water Systems in Grabill, and a bottle of Armani fragrance for their efforts to help promote the TAP PROJECT.)
Every day, 4,200 children die of water-related diseases. Nearly 900 million people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water.
The TAP PROJECT is a global UNICEF initiative to provide clean water to children around the world.
This past week, Americans were encouraged to go to restaurants and pay $1 for tap water they would normally get for free, and the $1 was donated to the TAP PROJECT.
Also to spread the TAP message to the masses, Giorgio Armani’s iconic’s men’s fragrance, Acqua di Gio’ will be donating $1 to TAP for every bottle of Acqua di Gio’ sold nationwide in the month of March. With your purchase of the fragrance, the $1 donation can provide a child with safe drinking water for 40 days. It only takes $10 to provide 400 children safe drinking for one day.
