Tuesday night, in the midst of the September Campaign, charity: water’s staff paused to think big picture. For our semi-annual Town Hall meeting, we talked strategy to reach our organizational goal of giving clean water to 100 million people. We’ve served 2.5 million people already but that means we’re only 2.5% of the way there, so these updates are crucial to keep us on track.
Then we took a break from business to honor four hard-working colleagues–Jasdeep Gosal, Melissa Burmester, Bill Bell, and Stephanie Goetz, who, as MVP of MVPs, was awarded Jerry, the mustachioed bunny (named after our Jerry can logo).
The very next afternoon, those MVPs got to join a few others of the charity: water team to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange. Over 100 million people from around the world watch this event every day – now that many more people know about us and our current September Campaign for Rwanda.
