This summer, we’re partnering with MiiR to tell the story of how clean water can change lives. MiiR is an innovative company who makes great bottles that also help provide access to clean, safe drinking water for those in need. What does this mean for you? We need your help designing a new skin for their next line of water bottles! Then, on July 9-14, join us for “Drink Just Water” Week where we’ll explore the role that water plays in our everyday lives.
Get the details and upload your art design by July 8 on our new ACT:S Challenge.
Who is MiiR?
MiiR believes in challenging the status quo. In 2009, founder Bryan Papé set out to design a more innovative and functional water bottle. In the process, he also learned that nearly one billion people don’t have access to clean drinking water.
He stumbled upon this quote by Richard Stearns in The Hole in Our Gospel: “In Africa, they don’t say that water is important to their lives; they say that water is life. It is absolutely the foundation upon which civilization and human life is built, and the best news is that we have the knowledge and the technology to provide it. All we lack is the will.”
Determined to make a difference, Bryan made giving back to those in need through great products the center of his company. Through MiiR’s one4one initiative, one dollar of each bottle provides one person with clean water for an entire year. To date, MiiR has donated more than $30,000 to building wells.
