Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren't strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses. Every day, charity: water helps some of the 800 million people who lack access to clean water by implementing freshwater wells, rainwater catchments and sand filters.
To help charity: water and their awe-inspiring mission, we created a custom line of bicycles, The Uniform and The Yankee. For each bike sold, we donate $100 to charity: water and since our launch in the summer of 2013, we have donated more than $10,000. We are beyond thrilled by all of your positive reactions to our custom charity: water line, and we can't help but feel all warm inside when we see those jerry can logos on our wheels ride by!
