Given that it’s World Water Day, we thought today would be the perfect time to announce that we’ve just closed our charity:water donation campaign, raising over $9,000. This is the second year in a row that StumbleUpon has raised money for charity:water. To make an even bigger impact, we reached out to our community and asked you to donate via an online donation tool provided by charity:water. We also matched all donations from StumbleUpon employees.
We’re proud to report on the final numbers: $3,340 were donated by our employees. This amount was then matched by StumbleUpon. Additional contributions from generous Stumblers brought the final amount to $9,200. Our campaign was part of the bigger “Water for Schools” project, and our donation will provide clean, safe water to 300 kids in a developing country.
We’d like to thank everyone who contributed to this campaign and made it possible. We will pass along information on where your donations went as charity:water updates us with photos and GPS coordinates on Google Earth.
