For FoHi Restaurants

images3.jpgI wish I’d known about this sooner, but there’s still time. This week (March 16-22), there is something going on, through UNICEF, called The Tap Project:

It’s our single most bountiful resource. Yet, water is a daily privilege millions take for granted. The little known truth is that lack of clean and accessible drinking water is the second largest worldwide killer of children under five.

To address this situation, a nationwide effort is launching during World Water Week called the Tap Project, a campaign that celebrates the clean and accessible tap water available as an every day privilege to millions, while helping UNICEF provide safe drinking water to children around the world.

The Tap Project.

Beginning Sunday, March 16 through Saturday, March 22, restaurants will invite their customers to donate a minimum of $1 for the tap water they would normally get for free. For every dollar raised, a child will have clean drinking water for 40 days.

The project’s Web site has a link to those restaurants that are participating. The closest one to Forest Hills is London Lennie’s, over on Woodhaven Blvd., but I suspect this is because no one knows about this initiative. So it’s not too late, if any of our local haunts wants to sign on…
