Emily and Allyson are perfect examples that you can make a significant difference no matter how old you are. Just in their early teens, these girls have dedicated their time and sewing abilities to help fight the water crisis in Zambia. The Zambian communities need clean water, so Emily and Allyson donate the sales from their handmade Birds of Hope to provide bio-sand filters and community wells.
Emily and Allyson realize that “[b]eing a young girl in Zambia means you will likely be responsible for gathering water for all of your family’s needs. Being a young girl in America means you will likely be responsibly for gathering whatever resources you have to help those in need.”
These girls sell their cute handmade birds to support Active Water. Active Water is an organization that “uses athletic lifestyle and grassroots campaigns to bring clean water and sanitation projects to needed communities throughout the globe.”
The purpose of the handmade hanging birds are not solely to support Active Water and bring clean water, but as an awareness tool. While your donation makes a difference in Zambia, you can make a difference with your bird. Give it away and share the story.
