It’s worth safe drinking water for Khan and his school friends in Bangladesh!

The Scrubba wash bag team are donating up to $15,000 to charity: water to provide safe drinking water for up to 750 people in Bangladesh and you can help!

All you have to do is:

  1.     Take a photo of yourself using the Scrubba wash bag or holding it somewhere cool (maybe on your travels or somewhere near your home);
  2.     Post the photo on our Facebook page or send it to comps@thescrubba.com before June 26 2014 and we will donate $20 (that’s safe drinking water for one student)
  3.     Ask your friends to like the Scrubba wash bag Facebook page. For every new ‘like’, we will donate $1 towards the project.

 This is how easy it is to provide safe drinking water and sanitation to one child in need:

  

The project will provide an ongoing supply of clean and safe drinking water for around 750 people as well as training in water and sanitation hygiene. With 16% of people in Bangladesh lacking access to water and 42% lacking access to sanitation, this project will be vital to the school and nearby communities.

The Scrubba wash bag is the world's most portable washing machine and it has helped travelers all around the world travel lighter and cleaner.  It is the best way to wash clothes when camping, traveling or backpacking.  The Scrubba wash bag team are also committed to helping those in need, particularly those without access to one of the most basic human needs: clean drinking water and sanitation.

This campaign runs until 26 June 2014.  For each suitable photo received before this date, the Scrubba wash bag will donate $20.00 to charity: water towards this project.  For each new Facebook like (the campaign started at 19,849 likes), the Scrubba wash bag will donate $1.00.  By submitting a photo, the submitter confirms that they have the copyright to the photo and provides us with permission to use the photo on our website and social media.
