The greatest gift we can give to our children is to instill a heart of giving, service, and empathy. All children are born with an innate sense of charity and compassion, it’s our job as parents to nurture it and empower the next generation of social good advocates. When P&G reached out with the opportunity to learn more about the power of clean with their water demonstration kit I knew it would be a perfect hands-on life lesson for my boys. With P&G’s help, I was able to offer our boys a glimpse of what children in developing countries must do to have clean drinking water. This hands-on experiment definitely lit a fire in our boys to make a difference for those in need of basic essentials such as clean water. Access to safe drinking water is a basic human right, however many are living without access to clean water.
Purifying Water at Home – A Fun, Family-Friendly Activity That Gives Back
I’m excited to share that P&G is now selling the Purifier of Water packets to do this fun and educational activity at home with your families. By purchasing one P&G Purifier of Water packet, not only will your family take part in a fun and impactful experiment, but you will be donating 3 months’ worth of clean drinking water to a child in a developing country.
*For each set of packets purchased, $1.80 will be donated to the Children’s Safe Drinking Water Fund, which is a charitable fund managed by the Greater Cincinnati Foundation. For more information, please visit www.csdw.org.
With Spring Break around the corner, this would be the perfect memory-making activity to do with your kids and a great teaching tool to talk to your children about the clean drinking water crisis, the ability for science and technology to help in solving global issues, and the importance of giving to those in need. It’s a win-win and your children will never forget it!
Check out this video of my boys doing the clean water experiment, the looks on their faces and their reactions as they see the P&G Purifier of Water packet at work is truly priceless.
