Charity: Water Poster Series

charity-water-madewell

For those who aren’t familiar with Charity: Water, they’re a non-profit organization that brings clean and safe drinking water to every person in the world. Most of us take clean drinking water for granted, but not everyone is so lucky. Here are some stats to ponder:

90% of the 30,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions are in children under five years old. The WHO reports that over 3.6% of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water supply, sanitation, and hygiene.

For their September Campaign, Charity: Water invited 14 designers to create limited-edition India-inspired posters. The poster featured here was designed by Jonathan & Melissa Motzkin of Makewell.

The posters are only $20, and 100% of profits will go to water projects in Orissa, India. Get one here. Get some nice art to decorate your walls, and help get clean and safe water to people who need it.

Dropclock is an beautiful clock screensaver that features numbers set in Helvetica dropping into water in super slow-motion. I bet you this bad boy is sucks up a lot of cpu and memory. It might just be worth it though.
