Like the #IceBucketChallenge? Then we invite you to take on the #CleanWaterChallenge!

You've probably been invited to do the ALS #IceBucketChallenge. The heart of the challenge is an important one and it is amazing (and hilarious) to see so many people rise to the occasion and provide much needed funds and awareness to a fantastic cause. Rock on, world - we're almost at $100M for ALS!

At the same time, 780 million people (more than 2.5x the population of the USA) lack access to clean water and studies show that as support for one charity increase, support for another decreases. We're inspired by everyone's commitment to the #IceBucketChallenge and know that together, we can come together to bring clean water to one of the harshest climates in the world, the Sahel desert.

We nominate you to take the #CleanWaterChallenge:
- Either take the polar plunge in a freezing cold body of water and donate $10 to charity:water, OR
- Donate $100 to this campaign to help bring clean, safe water to people in the Sahel desert.
- Get it on video and challenge 3 of your friends to do the same within 48 hours.

Important stuff:
- Donate: http://bit.ly/cleanwaterchallenge
- Watch our #CleanWaterChallenge video: http://youtu.be/Mgk9magsG8I

More about charity:water and this campaign:
For women in the Sahel desert, not having access to clean water means hours of painful and exhausting work. Many of them walk miles each day just to reach the 100-year-old hole in the ground where they collect water. And they make that trip four or five times. Not only is that water contaminated and dirt-colored, but it has to be pulled up by hand, one bucket at a time.

But we can change all of that! We can bring solar powered pumps into communities and pipe water to tap stands right next to these women’s homes. We can bring time, energy and a better future to 100,000 people in Mali and Niger.

100% of everything we raise will directly fund water projects. And when those projects are finished, charity: water will send us proof in pictures and GPS coordinates, so we can see the actual people and communities we impacted. Even better, your donation will be matched dollar for dollar, so $100 is actually $200. That's enough clean water for nearly 7 people!)
