Filters Fast Proudly Announces the Launch of W3 Charity Project

Filters Fast is proud to announce the launch of our charity, W3- Work and Walk for Water. We want to do our part to make it possible for people around the world to have access to clean, fresh drinking water. Every time you flush your toilet, wash your hands, or take a sip from the hose on a hot summer day, remember that millions of people around the world are not able to enjoy these taken for granted pleasures. It is estimated that as many as 76 million people will die in the next 8 years of preventable water-related diseases. That is why now, more than ever, it is important for all of us to get up and do something.

So, how can you help? It’s easy! We have designed W3 so that you can choose to donate money, or donate miles, or both! For every mile you donate, a sponsored dollar will go to providing clean water to those who require it most. So don’t just sit there, do something! If your New Year’s Resolution is to get in better shape, you can reach your goal while helping those in need. Ask your family to sponsor your 20 mile donation (20 dollars), and reap the benefits of walking and helping others.

Here in the Filters Fast office, we have brought our commitment to providing clean water to the workplace.  Two of our employees have chosen to install Trek Desk’s, which allow them to walk on a treadmill while at work. We believe wholeheartedly that it is possible that every man, woman, and child has access to fresh, clean water, and we want to do our part.

Filters Fast will donate 100% of all proceeds, and they will go directly to water projects. This will provide wells and clean water to those who need it most.

Pamela Anderson Poses Nude for Clean Water

pamela-andersonMany celebrities have participated in charitable movements to bring clean water to those in developing nations. Perhaps the most well-known is Matt Damon, who along with Gary White, co-founded water.org. We are proud to say that Pamela Anderson has joined the ranks by posing nude for the January 2011 edition of Playboy magazine and earning $25,000 to be donated to the clean water cause.

As we all know, the posing nude part was nothing new for this former Baywatch star and Playboy girl.  The donations were sent by check to Waves 4 Water, one of several water charities that distributes water filter equipment, ranging from small ceramic water filters to entire filtration systems, to people in countries like Indonesia, Haiti and Pakistan, who don’t have access to clean water. Though Anderson also contributed personally, she said she wished she could do a lot more.

(Don’t we all?)

Rest assured. That next purchase of Playboy will enable you to say that you did your part to help those less fortunate…
