Last week’s meeting included how ISSA wants to get involved with UNICEF’s Tap Program for World Water Week, which falls on March 20th through 26th. The program’s goal is to help raise money to fund clean water and hygiene programs for children around the world by getting local restaurants to ask their patrons to donate $1 for the tap water they’d usually get for free. We discussed hosting a ‘Tappy Hour’ event booth on campus to promote the cause, possibly selling cups of water to our fellow students for $1, not only raising money for the Tap Project, but awareness as well. If you have any other ideas, we would love to hear them at our next meeting tomorrow night.
The least you all can do is let people know about this cool program. If you happen to work at a restaurant, talk it over with your employers and see if it’s something you can do.
Deanna, Cookie, and Tanya went to the UNICEF Tap Project training workshop in Los Angeles last Saturday, February 5th. The UNICEF representatives provided a lot of information about the campaign that they would like to share with you at our next meeting.
