Description: The Wells Project is an organization partnered with Living Water International that seeks to end the water crisis during our lifetime. Our 10 Days campaign is this fall and we are looking for advocates! The 10 Days is a ten-day period where we encourage all members of the Aggie family to only drink water and donate the money that would have been spent on other beverages to drill water wells in Rwanda. We believe that one of the greatest core values at A&M is selfless service, and our dream is for students at Texas A&M to play a large role in ending the water crisis, something that is completely solvable. Last year we raised over $50,000 and this year our goal is larger than ever. We want to raise $1 for every student enrolled at Texas A&M. It starts with you!
If you are interested in being an advocate for us this fall, send us an email at email@example.com.
Let’s BTHO of the water crisis!
