    because millions have no access to clean water

  • Project yum-yum

    My Christmas project for 2019 into 2020

    Yes - this year's project is basically about eating food with each other.

    It's simple. Watch this video to see what you can do to help me change the world.

    Why Water?

    Take a look at this and see why getting water to people is so important.

  • So, who am I?

    me, clean water, and the book - the story so far...

    Hi, I'm Lula.

    I'm an eleven year old from the Isle of Man, and I think it's wrong that there are millions of people across the world who don't have clean water to drink!

     

    It means they get sick and because of this they won't live healthy lives.

     

    So I decided to do something about it. I want to have my own charity one day called gushgush.

     

    But at the moment I'm 11, and when it all began I was just 7, so I'm linking in with charity:water - a charity in America that already does what I want to do. They have just launched an English charity:water and I went to meet them! It was awesome.

     

    To follow me on Facebook there is an external link at the top of this site. It's called FACEBOOK. No shock.

    My gross water experiment

    I made this when I was 7 years old, and it still explains really well why this is so important to 1 in 10 people around the planet.

  • So what's my current project?

    This year the project is simple.

    PROJECT YUM-YUM

    A delicious way to raise money.

    For many of us in this part of the world, we get to choose between clean and dirty water to drink.

    Project YUM-YUM celebrates all of our choices.

     

    Here's how it works.

     

    1. Choose people you love to invite for a meal.

    2. Cook them something super-delicious.

    3. Ask them to donate what they think the meal was worth.

    (make sure they already know this last bit is coming!)

     

    You can donate anything you may have raised through hitting the DONATE button on this site.

    Thanks for anything you can donate, whether it's through a meal, or just because you also want to help people get water. It all matters.
