Information about The H2O Challenge

The H2O Project was launched in 2001 by Steve and Brenda Koinis after Brenda saw a video depicting the removal of a very long guinea worm from a young African boy's leg. The H2O Project's goal is to raise awareness of the global need for clean water, and to equip the newly aware with a simple tool for making a difference. (Give up your sodas. Save someone's life!) 

WFSS has been partnering with The H2O Project since 2011. Brenda has now retired and has given WFSS permission to continue using The H2O Project for fundraising projects.

Make Fundraising Easy!

The easiest way to take in donations from friends and family is through your own WFSS customized fundraising page. After you begin the H2O Project with your friends, ask them to donate the money they saved on beverages to your page. You can post information about your fundraiser, and updates of encouragement along the way, and all donations will automatically receive tax receipts and go straight to WFSS without complications for you.
