$10,000 donated to charity: water

by Maylynn Bloom |

The Scrubba wash bag and Calibre8 Pty Ltd team are dedicated to taking part in providing clean water for communities in need. In June 2014 we raised and donated USD15,000 towards a clean water system for a school in Bangladesh and, with the support of our fans, were recently able to raise and donate another USD10,000 to charity: water in support of a clean water project in Ethiopia. Below is a message from charity: water in show of appreciation for our efforts and most recent contribution.

Water changes everything. Preventable waterborne diseases are drastically reduced. Long walks to muddy ponds and rivers are no longer necessary. Time spent collecting water goes down, which gives women a chance to earn an income and children a chance at a better education. Clean water offers improved health, a higher quality of life and hope for a better future.

Thank you for your $10,000.00 donation!

100% of your donation will directly fund water project costs in the field.

December 2014 clean water campaign

by Maylynn Bloom |

On a trip to Laos and Cambodia in 2012, the Managing Director of Calibre8 Pty Ltd and founder of the Scrubba wash bag, Ashley Newland, became aware of the vast social, political and health implications that unsafe drinking water had in many remote parts of the world and decided to dedicate a portion of our proceeds to tackling this issue.

In June this year, the Scrubba wash bag donated USD15,000 towards a clean water system for a school in Bangladesh and we’ll be donating another USD10,000 towards a well in Ethiopia by the end of this year.

Your Facebook likes and responses have helped us reach our goal, so thank you for your continued support.

If you completed our clean water questionnaire and are still wondering what the average cost of providing clean water for 1 person in the world is, the answer is around USD30.

Thank you for your participation in helping us tackle the issue of unsafe drinking water around the world. To find out more about charity: water and how you can help, click here.
