Olympic swimmers Ryan Lochte and Conor Dwyer thrilled us with their amazing performances at the 2012 London Olympics. They’ve lent their time and fame to support a wonderful charity called Water for People. Here’s a PSA they just released.
Okay, their performance reading cue cards is not as strong (sorry guys :P), but their cause is. Water for Peopleworks around the world in 10 countries (Uganda, Rwanda, Malawi, India, Hondusas, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Peru, and Ecuador) to help provide clean drinking water to these areas. They don’t just give handouts–they help build the infrastructure to provide sanitary, easily accessible water.
Women in these counties (who usually bear the load, literally, of trying to find clean water for their families) may want for hours and hours just to find clean water. These efforts are changing lives of women and saving lives of their families.
Donate at least $24 on Crowdrise.com before October 15, and you can win some cool signed schwag from Lochte and Dwyer, from water bottles, to Team USA swimming caps, to Speedo swimsuits.
