Supporting the Scrubba wash bag means supporting water projects in developing countries.
Part of the intention for developing the Scrubba wash bag is to provide an ongoing fund to support projects in developing nations.
Thanks to all our supporters and customers for allowing us to make this contribution.
We were initially told about Charity: water by one of our IndieGoGo funders, Lyston Peebles. Following some research, we like what we see and have made out first donation. Charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries and 100% of all public donations directly fund water projects. As the Scrubba wash bag grows, we hope to be able to fund an entire water project through Charity: water.

The overwhelming support for the Scrubba wash bag campaign on IndieGoGo allowed for our first significant contribution to be made.
Accessibility to water should be a right shared by all. With this in mind, $1000 of the money contributed to the Scrubba wash bag campaign on IndieGoGo was recontributed to an IndieGoGo campaign that is raising money to construct a reservoir in the Rift Valley Provence of Kenya. Currently, what little rainfall there is in this region is rapidly washed away. The reservoir, which was recently completed will allow for rainfall to be captured and used by the nomadic Samburu people.

We are on the lookout for other worthwhile water-related projects to support. Please contact us if you have any suggestions.
