About the Campaign

Clean water may seem like an issue that’s very far from home. How many times a day do you walk over to the sink to get a drink? To wash your hands? To rinse something? Maybe you never thought about this mundane activity being a luxury. Maybe you never thought of this lack of luxury being a women’s issue. But take a moment and soak this in:

WOMEN AND CHILDREN WALK FOR HOURS EACH DAY OFTEN FOR UNSAFE WATER.

All over the globe, women and girls walk up to 20 km (12 miles) each day to carry the weight of 20 kg (44 lbs.) of water on their heads.

AS A RESULT, GIRLS MISS SCHOOL. WOMEN CAN’T WORK. FAMILIES STAY TRAPPED IN POVERTY.

The massive number of hours and labor that girls and women spend in simply searching for, collecting and managing unclean water for their households, distorts their lives. One in five girls of primary-school age are not in school. This is one reason why.

WATERBORNE DISEASES KILL MILLIONS EACH YEAR.

Every minute a newborn dies from infection caused by lack of safe water and an unclean environment. Diarrhea caused by dirty water kills a child under 5 every two minutes.

IT’S AN ISSUE THAT’S DISEMPOWERING AND DEADLY.

EMPOWERING WOMEN, INSPIRING GROWTH: Genesys Women in Technology has a heart to make a difference with this strong mission in mind.

A single well literally transforms the lives hundreds of women, men and children for decades. That’s why Genesys Women in Tech is partnering with Water To Thrive, who works to bring the sustainable blessing of clean, safe water to communities in rural Africa. 100% of what you give goes directly to building wells. And it only takes $5,000 to build one.

We aren’t going to stop at just one well. Genesys’ Make a Difference Program is matching up to $5,000 in what we collect.

Together, let’s empower women and inspire growth. Together, let’s transform lives. Together, let’s build some wells.

This donation is in memory of Justin Dove - a wise soul whose dying wish was to see people come together and “bring joy to other people’s lives,”. Justin, you will be forever missed. In your memory, I make this donation in hopes it will bring others joy as was your final wish. We'll always have Spooky Action at a Distance. Miss you, Dovey.

This donation doesn't just help people have access to clean water -- it allows women to join in leadership roles for their communities to protect and provide a future of available clean water for their villages. I love how Water To Thrive has worked to support women while also ensuring equality.

How many meanings has water for us….. It means "emotion" when a little tear goes down on your face… because of joy or because of sadness. It means "growth" for a baby in his mom’s belly or for a blade of grass, close to a mountain’s river. It means "wonder" when you look at a cloud sky, overcame by a rainbow created by just one little drop of water. So many beautiful meanings for all of us. But for many others, women, man, kids… it has just one single meaning: it means LIFE. Thanks Genesys, for giving us the chance to contribute with this meaningful little “drop of water”.

This donation is made in memory of someone whom I've never actually met, but was clearly very special. The world lost Christopher J McCarter too soon. I hope with all of my heart that his mother, a friend, can overcome this profound loss. I hope that she may find peace and beauty in the positive ripples he created through his work with the community. Christopher was truly invested in PEOPLE. He was a football coach, he made sure children has presents for Christmas, he helped his family, and he made lots of time to spend with his mother, Tania. In an era where technology has enabled many of us to take one another for granted, Christopher regularly made time for his mother - they were very close. I'm sorry I was not able to meet him before his passing. Tania, please think of this donation as one of your son's ripples - ripples from his many acts of goodness he put into this world. His ripples will extend across the ocean and touch the lives of our global family. This money will be used to build a well for people who desperately need access to clean water. It will improve their quality of life, their opportunities, and enable them to create ripples of their own. Stay faithful and remember that your son lives on in the lives of those he's touched. <3
