For over 20 years, World Water Day has been observed on March 22. Mounting concerns over access to clean water worldwide, and sustainability in global development led to its creation by the United Nations, and it has been an important awareness day since.
There is a major need for better access to clean drinking water across the world, especially in developing nations. Water is crucial to health, and when communities in need are given access to safe water, life gets better–and people can thrive!
In the spirit of World Water Day, and in solidarity with efforts to make safe water a standard, Denver Mattress Company is proud to partner with World Vision this March 22, and year round. With each mattress purchased from Denver Mattress in 2015, World Visions will be able to provide one person with clean water for an entire year.
Children and their families can walk for miles to source water, and even then, are at risk of disease. Through donations and the partnership with Denver Mattress, bore holes, wells and other sources of clean water can make safe water accessible. With clean water, a child’s life can be forever changed. Without water-born illness, a child can survive childhood, learn, grow, and thrive in their community.
