2.3 billion
2.3 billion people live without basic sanitation or a restroom.

Water Changes Everything.
Water is necessary for life. Without clean drinking water, all aspects of life are stopped. Women and children walk long distances, 6 hours every day, to retrieve dirty water. The long walks force children, mostly girls, to miss school. Girls will walk at night because walking in the daytime can be dangerous. The water brought back is dirty, but it is all they have. Many children can not fight off water related diseases which is why dirty water is the top killer of children under 5.

What Does Clean Water look like?
Clean water changes everything. It eliminates the long walks. Children, especially girls, have more time to go to school. Women can work or take care of their families. Water-related illnesses dissappear. The whole community changes as it works together to manage its clean water infrastructure. Access to clean water provides education, health, gender equality, and community development.

How Your Participation Helps
We can change lives together. Any size donation will change the world for someone. By donating, you are providing clean water, education, health, gender equality, and community.
What is Charity Footprints?

Charity Footprints is a social enterprise that connects fitness and charitable giving. We empower people just like you, to get fit & give back.

Our Virtual Races allow non-profits to challenge their patrons to run, walk or ride and raise funds just as they would in a fundraising walkathon. The best part - charities save over 45% in event and logistical costs. So, the dollars that you pay to register or fundraise, go farther.

What is the campaign registration fee?

Campaign registration fee is the amount that you'll need to pay to enroll in this virtual race. This fee (less transaction charges) will go to the non-profit running this campaign as a donation.

The registration fee along with the funds raised through your individual fundraising page will enable the non-profit to fund various programs and pursue their organization's mission.

How can I create my fundraising page?

Well, you wouldn't have to create a separate fundraising page. Once you register for this campaign, we'll give you the link to your fundraising page.

How will I track my distance?

You can track your workouts by setting up your devices (Fitbit, Garmin, Apple Watch, Google Fit, Misfit), or download the Charity Footprints' iOS or Android app and track your workouts toward this campaign.

If you workout indoors (treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike etc.), you can upload your workouts here.

I am an international donor (non-US), what are my donation charges and tax-deductibility?

All donations are made in US dollars, so the donations may be levied an exchange rate fee via your bank. Donors will want to connect with their bank to determine exactly what that fee may be. Additionally, international donors will need to reach out to a tax professional to discuss if and how tax deductibility will apply to their donation.

Who can sponsor my fundraising efforts?

The short answer is - everyone. The fundraising research shows that the number one reason for people not donating is that they weren't asked to.

That said, there are things you can do to attract people to sponsor you. Adding a picture to your fundraising page, telling potential donors why this cause is so personal to you, sharing your fundraising page on social media, email, and chat groups.

Last, if your employer has a gift matching program, check with the human resources department to support your favorite cause as well.

Who can I contact if I need help?

You can contact us any time if you need help. We love hearing from our users so please don't hesitate to write to us about issues, suggestions, or to just say hi. You can also contact the non-profit administrator directly if you would like.
