Team Agua walks one mile for every donation

Posted by Steve Hall on October 26

Team Agua is a student-led H2O for Life Water Club in Woodbury, MN. We are sisters and co-founders of the club! We’re doing this because we feel it is wrong for people to not have bathrooms or be able to wash their hands with clean water!

“If people get sick, they might spread it to others.” (Ana)
“Helping others helps us all be safe.” (Jayna)
“Everyone should be able to wash their hands at school!” (Finn- the girls’ best friend)

THIS IS WHAT WE WANT TO DO AND HOW YOU CAN HELP:
We learned about a school in need. It’s called El Cascajal and it’s in Nicaragua. They want to build 3 bathrooms because they don’t have bathrooms. The whole project will cost $975.

Starting November 1 we will walk one mile every day for every donation we get until we raise our money! Make a donation, any amount*, and we will walk to say thank you and raise awareness for how many kids actually have to walk miles for water every day!

(*We made a video and suggested $30 because $30/day x 30 days gets us really close to our goal. We also learned that one mile of pennies is 84,480 pennies or $844.80 so we’d take spare change, too.)

DONATE HERE

Thanks for helping us bring clean water and bathrooms to El Cascajal! Kids can make a difference!!
