As many of you know, Splash is a long-time implementing partner of the Never Settle Foundation. Splash brings clean water, sanitation, hygiene, and menstrual health solutions to kids in some of the largest cities in the world. Their groundbreaking initiative, WASH in Schools for Everyone (Project WISE), aims to reach one million children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and Kolkata, India by 2023. Splash’s work to encourage hand-washing with soap has become especially critical as it is the first line of defense against the Coronavirus and one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of disease overall.
That’s why we are excited to announce that the Never Settle Foundation is “sponsoring a table” at the Just Add Water Virtual Gala with Splash.
Just Add Water Virtual Gala
Splash is hosting a virtual gala this week from May 12-15th called Just Add Water. The goal for Just Add Water virtual gala is to raise $200,000 to ensure Splash has the resources required to continue serving the kids, schools, and vulnerable communities that rely on their programs. They have reported fundraising over $50,000 before the event has even officially started! We feel confident that with the help of Team Never Settle and other supporters, they will reach their ambitious fundraising goal!
Don’t miss a moment of the virtual gala experience. Each day of the virtual new content will go up on the Just Add Water site or stream live at 5pm PDT.
