the $6,800 wishing well.

Blog Home | | from the field

We dropped off a heavy $6,809.09 at the bank today, all from our “Wishing Well” at Chelsea Market. The well has collected loose change since our exhibition there last May. (Learn more about the event here.)

Last spring, we installed a three-month exhibition at Chelsea Market. We used photos, videos and facts to share the gravity of the water crisis. We collected loose change in a “wishing well” to fund clean, safe water projects. The exhibition came down in May but our wishing well stayed up — and we just received a new shipment of coins today at the charity: water office.

The total?

$6,809.09.

In loose change.

Every penny counts — but Michael Somoya has to clean them first to make sure the bank will accept them. 100% of donations will fund clean, safe water projects in Haiti. Visit the Unshaken campaign site for more info on our work in Haiti.

A big thanks to everyone who contributed! 100% of donations will fund clean, safe water projects in Haiti.
