Jon Rose and friends including Hurley athletes Carissa Moore, Rob Machado, Conner Coffin, Bob Burnquist, Actress Rosario Dawson, and Chefs Alex Atala and Sam Talbot will travel to nations in need in an effort to bring 100,000 people clean-water access.
In correspondence with World Water Day 2014 (March 22), clothing company Hurley will be working with Waves For Water to coordinate one of the largest single-day water relief efforts in history. Five groups of Clean Water Couriers will lead missions to five different parts of the globe: Brazil, Haiti, Indonesia, Liberia and Nicaragua. Each team of key advocates will include Hurley Surfers and ambassadors to participate in the distribution of water filtration units. The teams will be bringing with them 1,000 water filters for a single-day activation (March 22, 2014), with capacity to provide clean-water access for 100,000 people.
“We typically work in a very lean and covert fashion to maximize our efficiency on the ground, but since this specific project is just as much about awareness as it is action,” says Waves For Water Founder Jon Rose. “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to bring some of our longtime friends and advocates – Carissa Moore, Rosario Dawson, Rob Machado, Alex Atala, and more – along for the ride.”
