Each month ClothesRacks.com supports a meaningful charity by donating 5% of our profits to their cause. We believe in supporting our community and nurturing those who are making the greatest social impact. We are grateful that we have customers who love our products and love what we do. We feel compelled to give back and to support others. This summer we are supporting Water.org for 3 months to help them solve the global water and sanitation crisis.

The charity of the month for Summer 2016 is:

 

The Problem:

663 million people - 1 in 10 - lack access to safe water.
2.4 billion people - 1 in 3 - lack access to a toilet.
Twice the population of the United States lives without access to safe water.
1/3 of the global population lives without access to a toilet.
More people have a mobile phone than a toilet.
Globally, 1/3 of all schools lack access to safe water and adequate sanitation.
In low and middle-income countries, 1/3 of all healthcare facilities lack a safe water source.

Why Water.org?

Water.org provides innovative, market-based solutions that change lives every day through safe water and sanitation.
