As they did last year, this year Stella Artois is selling Limited Edition Chalices with designs representing a specific country in the developing world. Last year they featured Ethiopia, Honduras, and India. This year, the designs are from Haiti, Kenya, and Peru.
Water.org is a non-profit, founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, that helps to bring clean water and sanitation to the world. Those of us who turn on a faucet to see crystal clear that are regulated by federal, state, and local laws to be safe may forget that around the world over 660 million people lack access to safe drinking water, and 2.4 billion people lack access to a toilet. In these societies, often the burden of finding and collecting clean water falls on the women.
Each chalice is $13. But for each chalice sold, Stella Artois will donate to water.org enough to supply 5 years of clean drinking water to the developing world. Their campaign is called, cleverly enough, “Buy a Lady a Drink”. You can see pictures of the chalices here along with the designs that inspired them.
