The One Drop Foundation, Guy Laliberté’s international non-profit organization dedicated to providing access to safe water, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary by launching ‘10 Waves of One Drop.’
This series of fundraising initiatives will offer unique celebrity experiences through Charity Network’s online auctions and sweepstakes to benefit One Drop, with half of the proceeds going to the celebrities’ charities of choice.
“10 Waves of One Drop is a creative and atypical celebration of the power of generosity,” Guy Laliberté said. “Since One Drop’s inception, we were lucky enough to count on the support of dozens of celebrities who share my desire to change the world in a bold and positive way. For our 10 years, I have asked them to join us with their charity of choice, so that this online celebration can generate an impact not just for One Drop, but for 10 other extraordinarily important causes.”
In just a decade, One Drop has raised more than $120 million to help improve access to safe water, and is on the way of helping transform the lives of more than 1 million people in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities.
This new fundraising initiative will be promoted through the Charity Network and its two digital fundraising platforms, Charitybuzz and Prizeo. From November 2017 throughout 2018, uniquely-tailored experiences will be launched every month featuring celebrities from all walks of life such as Shakira (supporting Pies Descalzos), Rafael Nadal (Rafa Nadal Foundation), Michael Douglas (One Drop Foundation), Jack Nicklaus (Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation), and Ferran Adrià (elBulli Foundation).
The first 10 Waves of One Drop experience is launching on Charitybuzz with legendary elBulli chef Ferran Adrià. It offers the opportunity to have the world-renowned chef reinvent your favorite childhood dish with an exclusive tasting in his company at the newly opened Enigma Atelier in Barcelona.
“I am truly happy to be part of this philanthropic celebration and to offer an original experience that will raise funds to help people without access to safe water around the world,” said Adrià.
