Seattle, WA - MiiR Bottles announced today they have selected Seattle non-profit One Day's Wages as their official giving partner.
â€œWe are very excited to work with One Day's Wages as our official giving partner relating to our ongoing one4one clean water campaign. One Day's Wages has a similar vision of sharing not only the statistics but more importantly the stories of people affected by extreme poverty,â€ says Bryan PapÃ©, MiiR Founder and CEO. â€œThis partnership reinforces our one4one commitment and will help streamline our process to provide clean drinking water worldwide as our business continues to grow.â€
MiiR will donate its one4one funds directly to One Day's Wages, where 100 percent of that money will directly fund water and sanitation projects worldwide. Currently, every MiiR bottle sold provides one person with clean water for an entire year.
â€œWe're thrilled to be in this partnership with MiiR. We're compelled not just by their product, but more importantly, by the mission behind their company. Rising above the status quo, MiiR is committed to giving through their business model of â€˜one4one' - by donating one dollar for every water bottle sold,â€ says Eugene Cho, Founder and Executive Director of One Day's Wages. â€œOne Day's Wages is proud to be MiiR's official partner to invest these funds to help bring clean water to thousands of people that currently do not have access to clean water. â€œ
All water and sanitation projects funded by MiiR and its supporters will be finished within 12 months of giving through its partnership with One Day's Wages. Photos and GPS coordinates of completed projects will be shared on the MiiR website www.miir.com and on the MiiR Facebook fan page at www.facebook.com/miirbottles.
