At ELC Boston we hosted our second annual Valentine’s Day fundraiser for charity. ELC students and staff raised a total of $297 in donations through the flower exchange and bake sale. Denisse and Aurore won the privilege of choosing the charity out of the group of people that donated $5 or more. They choose Water.org, which has transformed hundred of communities in Africa, South Asia, and Central America by providing access to safe water and sanitation. Water.org works with local partners to deliver innovative solutions for long-term success.
Water fact #1: Nearly one billion people (about one in eight) lack access to clean water.
Water fact #2: More than 3.5 million people die each year from water-related disease; 84% are children.
Water fact #3: For only $25, Water.org can bring someone access to clean water for life.
Thank you to everyone that contributed to the fundraiser by buying flowers and baked goods!
