Meet Our Partner, Waves for Water

· by Shira Brettman

This past New Year's, Venmo resolved to double down on our mission to connect the world and empower people through payments. A half-year later, we might have dropped the ball on our gym memberships and gluten-free paleo diets, but we are still very much committed to this resolution.

This month, our partner, non-profit Waves for Water, in conjunction with our friends at PayPal, launched an international giving contest between nations. Waves for Water helps provide communities around the world with access to clean drinking water. Donations from this particular challenge will be used to purchase clean water filters for communities in Brazilian cities hosting the soccer games. Every $50 donated provides one million gallons of clean water—that means each dollar you donate will provide two people with clean water for up to five years.

Make waves through Venmo: donate here.
