WANT TO GET INVOLVED IN THE 2014 PAN AMERICAN EXPEDITION? THEN TAKE THE CHALLENGE!
July 28, 2014
By purchasing one of our bracelets at an event and committing to only drinking water instead of soda pop, energy drinks, coffee, or tea you could save up to $22-$25 in two weeks! By donating that money to one of our charities you can change a child’s life and give them something to smile about!
Don't worry if you can’t make it to one of our events, you don't need the bracelet to take the challenge! Just make your donation online and drop us note or let us know when you donate on Crowdrise that you are going to take the Two Week Water Challenge. Thank you for giving a child something to smile about!
