March 22 is World Water Day

Birthdays can change the world // a story from charity: water fundraisers from charity: water on Vimeo.

Last week many of us were reminded of the damaging consecuences of not having water and how it affects people worldwide but few of us were informed on what can be done to help.

In the past, we have written about charity:water, the non-profit organization dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. On March 22, World Water Day, charity:water decided to focus on the positive rather than the negative by inviting us to share the efforts made by many to bring clean water to those who need it the most. A simple, clean and engaging website was launched to tell the stories of those who have contributed by giving up their birthdays and they invite us to do the same.

Many of us at arangostudio have given up our birthdays to help this cause. Today we want to encourage you to see and hear what other fundraisers have to say by visiting charity:water's new site and watching the video above.

I just read an article from www.designtaxi.com and thought I would share these truths created into posters by graphic designer Anneke Short. The posters are part of a collection called "Confessions of a Designer" which state what many of us designers think but can't always say.
