Sweet Water Wells - Building wells in Africa
We are dedicated to continue to do what we feel called to at Artpeace, and making a difference in the world while we do it. Do what you love to aid what you hate. We hate that there are so many people in the world without the basic need of clean water. Millions die per year because of drinking water that is unsanitary. Over 60% of our bodies are made of water, yet so many people cannot rehydrate themselves with a clean water. This basic need, has called us as a community to continually raise money to build wells in Africa, clean water wells for communities that are without clean water. Artpeace, now joining in the efforts with Dancing For Joy, has built 5 wells so far and are well into our 6th well. GPS coordinates will be available soon, as to the exact locations of the wells we have sponsored in Ethiopia. If you feel led to participate in this effort financially or in other ways, please donate or ask how you can support the building of these wells at our office. Thanks.
We raise money: Donating all of our tips from our coffee shop, raising awareness in the community, selling bottled water at our coffee shop, we have a dance benefit show every March near World Water Day, Special Promotions, Bake Sales, & an on-going donation area at our studio (for every dollar donated, you get to put a blue marble in a Jerry Can - It represents a drop of clean water for people that are without it). And soon to be added will be an art auction, made up of artpeace teachers and students, to raise money for this cause.
Our partner is Evangeline International: And their program is called sweet water wells. Every dollar goes directly to building these wells. No monies are kept for overhead.
