Towards the beginning of July, UpCity announced that our Spring Reviews for a Cause campaign benefiting charity: water had ended with an extraordinary finish. Thanks to our UpCity partners, we were able to raise a total of $8,860 – completely fueled by new reviews added to our Marketplace. For every new review our partners added to their profiles from April through June we donated $10 to charity: water.
Because of the donation, UpCity has now become an official Water Project Sponsor and is bringing clean water to an entire community in Malawi!
About charity: water
charity:water prides itself on using the 100% model. Where 100% of UpCity’s donation goes straight to field projects. In addition, the timeline to implement this project is 21 months from start to finish. Working with local contractors and implementation partners, our donation of access to clean water will give families time back that used to be spent collecting water from dirty resources. With this time children go back to school, mothers and fathers can return to work and families can take care of each other again.
Thank you to all our contributors and partners – for your reviews and the impact they have made!
