“Water Missions International (WMI) is our partner of choice to solve one of the world’s greatest tragedies: dirty, unsafe drinking water.”
Foster Friess, philanthropist and long-time supporter of Water Missions International, is challenging his friends and family to give to Water Missions International by presenting a $125,000 Matching Grant. Through implementation of the new TradeWater program using cutting-edge technology known as Lifelink, Water Missions International will be the first NGO to implement this technology and we believe it will open doors to partnerships with other funding sources to significantly increase the scale of our efforts. Funds are needed to install 15 projects in Uganda, Malawi, Indonesia and Haiti.
Foster says, “I have committed to match gifts received by May 31, 2012 up to $125,000. Please contribute now. Your gift will save lives. Saving millions of people is good, but nearly a billion are at risk.” To read more on Foster’s blog, click here.
Thank you, Foster, for investing in such a life-saving, transformational gift. Friends, please consider contributing to this fund to help meet Foster’s match. For more questions, contact us at email@example.com
