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.

Read how the money is used in the "Water for Schools" projects.

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.
