WOODSTOCK, IL – November 27, 2018 – OWC®, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company announced they are continuing to bring water to those in need by partnering with charity: water this #GivingTuesday and holiday season. Starting today, OWC will donate $25,000 to charity: water and will match dollar for dollar raised by the public up to $125,000 match, for a total campaign of $250,000. In addition, OWC will donate $1 for every newsletter sign between November 27 and December 21, 2018. Join OWC in bringing the difference of water with charity: water.
According to charity: water, there are more than 663 million people living without access to clean water. That is nearly 1 in 10 people globally and twice the population of the United States. With clean and accessible water, we can improve education, income and health — especially for women and children.
"OWC is all about solutions and charity: water is an exceptional solution for a great need," said Larry O'Connor, Founder and CEO of OWC. "By helping bring clean and accessible water to communities in need, we are not only providing better health conditions, but we are freeing up time in the day for a renewed focus on education, building and bettering these communities."
This latest partnership is part of OWC's continuing effort to bring awareness and funds for clean and accessible drinking water. OWC has previously funded 17 wells in Ethiopia as well as sponsoring Florian Wagner and his African Waters project. In addition, OWC will be making an additional $25,000 donation to Splash.org, if the first $25,000 is raised by the public by December 1st.
