About 2017 Shower Strike

Volunteers across the globe unite and vow not to shower until they have each raised at least $1,000 toward life-saving water systems in Africa. Our nationally-recognized fundraiser enables anyone who wants to help Well Aware’s cause make a big impact in a short time. For the people we are helping, a clean drink of water is a luxury. A shower is unheard of. It's the least we can do to skip our showers for a week, so that others can survive and thrive.

When you join the Shower Strike, you'll give up taking showers until you reach your fundraising goal. You can participate as an individual or as part of a team.

The top fundraising individual and the top fundraising team will each get a clean water system dedicated in their name.

If you can't go without a shower for a week -- we understand! You can still join and help raise money.

Why Join and Support the Strike?

Imagine not having access to clean water to drink, bathe or cook. Nearly 1 billion people live this way, and they shouldn’t have to. Join the strike and be part of our revolution to give people clean water for life.

  • Up to 2,000 children die each day from water-borne diseases.
  • The average distance women in Africa walk to collect water is four miles.
  • Clean water is the foundation for education, disease eradication, gender equality and economic stability.

Every $10 raised during Shower Strike provides clean water to a person for 25 years.

About Well Aware

Well Aware is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with headquarters in Austin, Texas that provides innovative and sustainable solutions to water scarcity and contamination in Africa. We fund and implement life-saving water systems to drive economic development and build self-sufficient communities. At Well Aware, our responsibility to the communities in which we work goes far beyond the drilling of a hole.

More than 60 percent of existing water wells in Africa currently do not work. Our water systems work and they last because of realistic and responsible planning and collaboration. And, our partner communities are thriving as a result. To learn more visit www.wellawareworld.org

We couldn't do it without our sponsors.
