Joel Madden: Spreading the word about the Tap Project

March 20, 2009
Did you know that nearly 900 million people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water? That's 4,200 children dying, every single day, from waterborne disease. As a UNICEF Ambassador and Tap Project® spokesperson, I am committed to helping UNICEF get that number down to zero. I want to encourage everyone to do your part during World Water Week, March 22-28, 2009 to help UNICEF put an end to the preventable deaths of children due to a lack of clean water.

  I'm going to be spreading the word throughout World Water Week on Larry King Live, People Magazine, E! News and more to let everyone know why the Tap Project is such an important lifesaving campaign. Just $1 provides a child with safe drinking water for 40 days! All you have to do is find a participating restaurant online at tapproject.org, dine out during World Water Week, and pay $1 or more for the tap water you usually enjoy for free. Every single dollar raised supports UNICEF water, sanitation and hygiene programs.
