This campaign brought clean water to Maileba Community, Ethiopia and 1 other project.

There are 800 million people in the world living without access to clean water. We can do our part to change that!

Earlier this year, Singapore experienced our driest season with little or no rain for 2 months. Several states in our neighbouring Malaysia even have to resort to water rationing for businesses and residents alike. Through years of foresight, planning and conserving, Singaporeans were much luckier compared to our peers as our diversified water sources meant that our daily lives went on unaffected except for the usual complaint of "This weather is so blardy HOT!"

This was a wakeup call to many. Many of us in this part of the world don’t spend too much time thinking about water because it’s available everywhere we go. When we’re thirsty, we flip a handle or push a button. When we’re dirty, we twist a shower knob. When our cars are dirty, we hose down the dirt with zero hesitation. When we need to cook our rice, when we use the bathroom -- water is just an arm's length away and more often than not, we forget how precious clean water can be.

In many developing countries, the situation is a lot less fortunate. Women and children walk for hours, up and down mountains, just to collect water that can make them really sick.

On 1 May 2014, we celebrate 2 years of awesome coffees at Nylon and we want to continue to do our part on this very special day. Last year, because of your kindness, we raised a total of SGD$3,915.80 for charity: water but we want to better that figure this year. And we can only do that with your help! In return, we will be serving coffees FREE from 9am - 6pm on 1 May 2014. We humbly ask for your generous support to our cause -- any amount you give is gonna be a massive step towards providing clean water to someone who really needs it.

As part of the 2nd anniversary celebration, we have also prepared a special auction gift set perfect for any home brewer, consisting of

Kalita 155 Stainless Steel Dripper
Kalita 155 Brown Filters (50pcs)
Porlex Mini Ceramic Hand Grinder
Ethiopia Workye Shallo
Hand Doodled Charity Run Illustration (Courtesy of May)
All these in a handy yet beautiful repurposed wine box.

Send your bid** to water@nyloncoffee.sg by 4 May Sunday 11.59pm and we'll announce the winning coffee nut the following day.

Make it a date with us on 1 May 2014!

** 100% of the winning bid will go towards the final amount to be contributed for this charity campaign and the winner will need to pick up the gift set from our shop.

-- 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.
