This year, Penn State SRCC and MudLOVE are teaming up for a good cause. At the end of February in the HUB, members of the Student Red Cross Club will be selling inspirational bracelets to benefit both the club as well as the organization, which provides clean water for someone in need. MudLOVE is dedicated to providing clean water and security to those in need all across the globe in the Central African Republic, and can provide these services for up to one week per bracelet purchase. The MudLOVE website states that, “Right now, about 663 million people lack access to clean water. That’s more than twice the entire population of the United States! Water is the first step out of extreme poverty. It is estimated that women and children spend 140 million hours each day collecting water. A week of safe, sanitary water changes things in a big way for entire communities. Women have time for jobs and family care. Children can attend school, avoid preventable diseases, and live longer, happier lives.” So, by purchasing these bracelets in the HUB next week, you can help both those in your community through the Red Cross Club as well as people across the globe to survive another day. We would love to see you then!
