We splash in our crystal clear pool all summer long, my girls jump on the trampoline as the sprinkler attacks them from underneath, we dash indoors and gulp down a cool refreshing clean glass of water. I know we are lucky to live where we do; I hope my children know they are blessed to have access to clean and safe water.
“As Canadians, we have a seemingly unlimited supply of clean water, so it’s no wonder that we often take it for granted. Yet approximately one billion people in the developing world do not have the same luxury, and diseases from contaminated water are killing more children every day than HIV/AIDS and malaria combined” The P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water (CSDW) Program helps provide clean drinking water to people in need through a water purifying technology developed by P&G. One small P&G purification packet quickly turns 10 litres of dirty, potentially deadly water into clean, drinkable water. Amazing isn’t it! P&G and Walmart are doing their part to raise awareness and provide access to safe drinking water around the world.

What You Could Win!
If you play along, not only will you get the enjoyment of following along with everyone else’s #cleanwater photos, but you will be entered to win a $250 Walmart gift card and a bundle of P&G products!!
At the end of the challenge one winner from all who participate and use the hashtag #cleanwater, will be chosen using random.org. Best of luck!
