Selena Gomez Raises Awareness for the UNICEF Tap Project

Former Disney star Selena Gomez is using Twitter to rally support for UNICEF’s Tap Project.

The award-winning Tap Project, now in its sixth year, is based on the concept, “When you take water, give water,” and asks restaurant patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they typically enjoy for free. The Tap Project is returning during World Water Week, March 19-25. All funds raised go to support UNICEF’s mission to bring clean water to the millions of children around the world who don’t have access to it. The funds from the 2012 Tap Project will specifically target Togo, Vietnam, Mauritania, and Cameroon.

Gomez tweeted, “Hey Guys! The UNICEF USA Tap Project kicks into high gear next week. Donate or sign up to VOLUNTEER!!!…”

The Tap Project has raised nearly $3 million in the US since its inception and helped provide clean water for millions of children globally. UNICEF hopes to reduce the number of people without basic sanitation and access to clean water in developing countries by 50% by 2015. This will help save children from waterborne illnesses, the second highest cause of preventable childhood deaths.

    Great project, I hope the result is a large sum of money to provide the children with water. Here is another project, everybody all over the world is welcome to donate old european vacation money (e.g. d-mark, peseta) to UNICEF via mail. Change tomorrow with money from yesterday.

Is jail time justice for abused farm animals?

Justice is not locking away some, it’s freedom for all animals.

Backwards Activists Don’t Mind If You Sell Non-Vegan Food, Just Don’t Hunt

They’re literally saying “it’s fine if you serve animal products, just don’t hunt.”

PETA still gives “Compassionate Business” awards to non-vegan companies

It’s not far from the back-patting of Meatless Monday or reducetarianism, but it comes with a cyber plaque.
