    Charity: water is such an amazing organization. We just had to get on their team, and we really appreciate their 100% model. We actually created a Water Is Life sock design specifically for their cause, to get even more funds to them. $1 for every sock is donated to their amazing efforts in providing clean water for developing countries. You can read more about the efforts here if you like:

      We love to hear that, Andreas! In fact, charity: water is one of the charities affiliated with CengageBrain’s Extra Credit Program so we are huge supporters. Thank you for sharing your site with us!
