The W3 Project
In underprivileged villages and communities throughout the world people exert approximately 40 Billion hours annually walking to access water so polluted that it kills 3 children every 60 seconds. Conversely, in the United States where fresh drinking water is in abundance people spend approximately 1.3 trillion hours sitting. 68% of America's adult population is overweight or obese, a condition causing more than 58 obesity related diseases and accounting for 3 deaths every 10 minutes.
- 1 child dies every 20 seconds in the world due to lack of clean drinking water which equates to an annual child mortality rate greater than AIDS, malaria and measles combined.
- 1 Billion people lack access to fresh, clean drinking water world wide.
- $1.00 can bring a year's supply of fresh drinking water to a fellow human being in need.
How the miles you walk
3 children die every 60 seconds from a lack of access to fresh water. This is a tragedy that we all have the power to change.
- Your First Step: Donate your miles. The miles you walk can benefit more than your individual health and well-being, it can improve the health of the less fortunate world wide without any extra cost to you.
- Your Second Step: Learn more. Read the incredible story of a former bartender who decided he had to do something to change the health of millions of needy worldwide. One man, one decision, one step. We all have this power inside of us and Doc Hendley’s book, Wine to Water: A Bartenders Quest to Bring Clean Water to the World, will inspire you in ways you can’t yet imagine. Please read the W3 Press Kit ( located on the bottom left of this text box), a partnership dedicated to improving health on a global scale. This PDF will explain the story behind W3 in detail.
