It was a very easy choice for LOOK to partner with the charity: water to fulfill our commitment to social responsibility. Personally, I have supported charity: water for a number of years. So many of us take for granted the basic and simple corner stone of life – clean drinking water. Clean water, however, is not a given and over 780 million people go with clean water everyday. And contaminated water is the number one cause of preventable blindness worldwide.
100% of all charity: water donations go to actual water projects so donors can see the real, tangible, and life altering impact of their contributions. Private donors fund operating costs so that donors can rest assured that every single penny they contribute is going to change people’s lives.
charity: water’s founder Scott Harrison’s journey from New York club promoter to philanthropist is truly inspirational. Since meeting Scott and hearing his story, I have tried to do everything I can to support charity: water and Scott’s important and ambitious goal to bring clean water to every man, woman and child on the planet.
Five years ago, I was fortunate enough to join Scott on one of his trips to Africa. The experience changed my life and my commitment to giving. That is why, LOOK has committed to donating $10 from every order for the first 1,000 online orders (a total of $10,000 -- enough to provide an entire community with clean water), as well as 1% of all future LOOK profits to charity: water.
From the bottom of our hearts, LOOK thanks Scott and his entire team at charity: water for all they do and all of the lives they change everyday. We would also like to thank our customers helping us bring clean water to as many people as possible.
