The Tap Project proved once again to be a phenomenal success with approximately $850,000 in total donations raised to date. Over 2,300 restaurants from 44 states officially registered to participate in the 2008 Tap Project. Sponsors last year included: American Express, Turner Broadcasting, Esquire magazine, opentable.com, and Rotary's Water & Sanitation Rotarian Action Group (WASRAG).
UNICEF works in more than 90 countries around the world to improve access to safe water and sanitation facilities in schools and communities, and to promote safe hygiene practices. Over the past 15 years, more than a billion people gained access to improved drinking water and sanitation facilities thanks to UNICEF's efforts. However, every day, 4,200 children die of water-related diseases. UNICEF's goal is to reduce the number of needless deaths to zero. With $1, UNICEF can provide 40 liters of safe drinking water, which is enough to give one child safe drinking water for 40 days.
