With A Purpose
A simple trip to Walgreens for you could mean days of clean drinking water for a family across the world.
The availability of clean water for drinking, cooking and cleaning is a serious issue for millions of families around the globe. It’s also a problem that we at Unilever are dedicated to solving, but it cannot be done without the help of you and like-minded partners — fellow organizations that believe in making a positive social impact.
For the first time, we are proud to team up with Walgreens and Me to We on a collaborative program, Give H2OPE to Others, and help provide 15 million gallons of water to families in need across the globe – and it’s all powered by you. Because when more than 750 million people worldwide do not have access to safe drinking water, it simply cannot be ignored.
How You Can Get Involved
It’s as easy as your daily shopping routine—one purchase equals five gallons of clean water donated to a community in rural Kenya. Purchase select Unilever products from TRESemmé®, Suave® or Caress® at your local Walgreens and Duane Reade between July 26th and September 30th. For each purchase, six cents will be donated to the Me To We Foundation (up to $200,000) to help provide clean water to families in need. Specifically, these water donations will help reduce the incidence of waterborne disease and cut time spent collecting water, which can allow students to spend more time in the classroom.
Make A Difference With Us
As a company, we’ve made progress in working to conserve water, but there is always more we can do. Me to We’s co-founder, Craig Kielburger, has shared our passion, saying “clean water isn’t a luxury; it’s a basic human right. This partnership will ultimately make a tremendous impact in the lives of so many families overseas, helping to break the cycle of poverty for many.”
Using the ‘Track Your Impact’ tool, enter the special code from your TRESemmé®, Suave® or Caress® bottle purchased from Walgreens and see the impact of your action directly. When it comes to giving hope to others, providing clean water can have a huge impact—and every small action counts. But this is no small task, as 20 – 50 liters of clean drinking water per person—per day—is necessary to fulfill the basic needs of drinking, cleaning and cooking. So let’s all do our part and Give H2OPE to Others across the globe.
