Celebrate World Water Week with Events Across the District

The UNICEF Tap Project is based on a simple concept: during World Water Week March 19-25th,
restaurants would ask their patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free, and all funds raised would support UNICEF’s efforts to bring clean and accessible water to millions of children around the world. The concept is basic and compelling: “When You Take Water, Give Water.” For a full list of restaurants in DC CLICK HERE.

You can also join the DC Tap Project on March 24th at the Goethe Institut to benefit UNICEF's efforts. The evening will feature music, wine, a photography exhibit, live music and exciting silent auction. All proceeds will benefit UNICEF's Water, Sanitation and Hygiene programs in Cameroon, Mauritania, Togo and Vietnam. Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 day-of-event. CLICK HERE to PURCHASE.
