If you go to Barneys Beanery, Bubba Gump, or Grateful Bread on Saturday, March 22, tap water is going to cost you $1.
More on that later.
The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and youth volunteers from the American Red Cross of Santa Monica are working together to promote the TAP Project which will help provide safe, potable, drinking water to children all over the world – especially in lands where safe drinking water is in very short supply.
The TAP Project asks people who are dining out to donate one dollar to the TAP Project for every glass of free “tap” water they have during their meals. Clean and plentiful drinking water is a daily privilege millions take for granted; that’s why UNICEF and the Santa Monica Red Cross are asking those dining out locally to participate in the project which runs through March 22, World Water Day.
So what about that $1 you will be spending for water at the above-mentioned restaurants? With $1, UNICEF can provide 40 liters of safe drinking water, which is enough to give one child safe drinking water for 40 days, or 40 children safe drinking water for one day.
