EVERY DAY, over 4,000 children die from water-related diseases. E.P.I.C. (Everyday People Initiating Change) is a non-profit organization committed to bringing safe, clean drinking water to the developing world. We need your help!
2011 was another amazing year for E.P.I.C.! We completed 4 wells, all with the help of our loyal contributors, including YOU!
We also began to expand our outreach in each community with our new 'Pedals to the People' program. By providing a few bicycles to each villiage, they are able to safely and quickly gain transport to the city areas, instead of having the daunting task of walking for hours on end for medicine and other basic supplies.
WE ASK THAT YOU HELP US INVEST IN A SUCCESSFUL 2012, BY DONATING $20.12 TO E.P.I.C. BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR. THE MONEY YOU DONATE WILL GO TOWARDS THE DRILLING OF WELLS IN NEW VILLAGES IN 2012, AND YOUR DONATION IS 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE A DIFFERENT AMOUNT, FEEL FREE TO DO SO HERE.
Today (March 22nd) is World Water Day! Please donate to our cause to help us bring clean water to the 1.1 billion people who are still in need of it!

We are happy to announce our recent partnership with the new Quiksilver Women's line (QSW). From now until the end of the year, QSW will be donating 3% of all of their T-shirt sales to the drilling of our clean water wells in Tanzania. This has already been a huge help to us, and has helped fund the last well we drilled in Mangalali, Iringa. For more information on our partnership, please visit these links:
One of the QSW team, Jen, came out with us to Tanzania this summer to learn more about what we do. To read more about our experiences, please visit the Quiksilver blog, scroll down to the September 8th entry, and read up (the next 3 entries!): http://womens.quiksilver.com/qsw-blog/
