How charity:water is Changing the World
By Paula Tesch
Duarte is passionate about good people, good causes, and good design. charity:water meets all those criteria in spades. Today, they paid a visit to our office to update us on how our donations been helping. (Who does that?)
Throughout the presentation, they shared relevant, easily share-able facts (e.g. $1 invested in water sanitation equals $12 in economic returns,) beautiful imagery and infographics, heartwarming stories, and lastly, a video of the exact well that was built with our contributions.

There are several things that set charity:water apart from other charities, but the most striking are:
- The 100% model. 100% of public donations go directly to water projects.
- Relentless transparency. You are given precise information, including the exact GPS coordinates of where your money is being spent.
- Good design. They have cultivated a beautiful brand and provide well-designed and effective tools to help you spread the good word.
We are proud to be part of charity:water’s story of success, and we hope you will consider it, too. Find out more about how you can help here: http://www.charitywater.org/getinvolved/
