#WeAllCan X Project 24

One  in  every  10  people  globally  lack  access  to  clean  water,  with 1 in 4 using  a  drinking  water  source  with  fecal contamination. It’s time we  change  this!  This  World  Water  Day,  March  22,  American Eagle Outfitters is  joining  forces with  Planet  Water  Foundation for PROJECT  24.

PROJECT  24’s  mission is to  build  24  water  filtration  systems  in  24  hours,  bringing  clean  water  to  24,000  people across 5  countries including  Cambodia,  Colombia,  India,  Indonesia,  and  the  Philippines.  American Eagle Outfitters has sponsored  one  of  the  24  clean water  towers  that  are  part  of  this  initiative  providing  critical  support  to  a community  in  need  in  Greater Delhi, India.

American Eagle Outfitters is  honored  to  step  up  to  the  challenge  and  play  an  important  role  in  helping  change the  lives  of  24,000 people  in  a  span  of  just  24  hours. Join  us  and  together  we  will  abolish  water  poverty,  one  community  at  a time!

In efforts to help bring clean water to communities, we are donating 15,000 dollars to build a water tower at Sangat Green Public School in Deri Machha Village. Ajay, a Grade 6 student at the school said, “I carry my drinking water from home as school water is dirty, and it smells bad. I feel sick for days after drinking water at school.”

American Eagle Outfitters is proud to help bring clean, filtered water to thousands of people in Deri Machha.  You can help provide clean water to even more kids in need by visiting www.planet-water.org.

Happy World Water Day!
