Wedding Bells for Wells!Water to Thrive would like to share a unique opportunity, to celebrate weddings while changing lives. Do you know a happy couple who already has enough bath towels and dishes? In lieu of gifts, how about making a donation in honor of their wedding, and give the life-transforming gift of clean, safe water to a community in east Africa! 100% of these water donations will go for water.
BYOB (Bring Your Own Bible) CampaignBYOB is a group of women that started meeting monthly in 2011 to study God's word, realizing God's many blessings in our own lives we want to give back in a meaningful way. Nearly 1 billion people in the world do not have access to clean, safe, drinking water. Our hope is that by helping provide one of life's most basic needs we can help our neighbors grow in health, knowledge, and Christ. For every $5,000 raised a water well will be built that will serve hundreds. Join us in bringing clean water to those that have never known it-
California Pizza Kitchen/W2T fundraiserHi, I wanted to let everyone know of an opportunity where just by going out to eat you can help raise money to provide clean water to the beautiful people of rural Africa. If presented with the attached flyer, California Pizza Kitchen (either Domain or Barton Creek location) will donate 20% of your entire bill to Water to Thrive. Water to Thrive is an Austin-based charity that began in 2007 and has already funded more than 230 water projects in Ethiopia and Sierra Leone. In 2012, they’ve expanded their efforts to Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya. A good friend of mine and I, recently learned of the restaurant’s philanthropic efforts in the community. She and I share a passion for clean water for all people but sometimes find it difficult during this stage in life to make a real difference in the problem. We thought putting the two organizations together would be a great and easy way to support a fantastic cause and just wanted to get the word out. California Pizza Kitchen will be hosting these “flyer days” for Water to Thrive on the 1st Sunday and 3rd Thursday of every month (beginning Sunday, Oct. 7). SO GO OUT TO EAT AND FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT (but don’t forget the flyer)! Also, please feel free to forward to anyone you know that goes out to eat! Happy Eating, Rhonda Hissey & Stacy Brown
