One Water Launching This Spring 2009

One Water is a UK brand and company that donates 100% of its profits to select charities. They are launching in the U.S. this spring where 100% of their profits will go to PlayPumps International. To date, they have donated $2.5 million, which in turn has provided clean drinking water to over 220 communities in rural Africa. It happens that my old grad school friend, Ron, is heading their U.S. efforts.

Did you know that 1 billion people in the world don’t have access to clean water? Or that 2 million people die each year as a result of water related diseases?

"The great news is that now you can make a difference and it’s as simple as a trip to your local store. Next time you are looking for a bottle of water, buy a bottle of One water, and all our profits - every last drop - will go toward funding the installation of a PlayPump water system. The PlayPump is an incredible innovation that we guarantee will capture your imagination and heart.

THINK about it. Every time you buy a bottle of water, you are choosing to make a difference. We have raised $2.5M to date and funded over 220 PlayPumps from our sales in the United Kingdom, bringing clean water to millions. We’re funding a new pump every 3 days. With our launch in the United States we will soon be funding a new pump every day! To learn more about PlayPumps or how you can help us make One a success, email ( us today."
