The Power of Clean Water Experiment and Giveaway

Disclosure. I am participating in a paid campaign on behalf of P&G and The Motherhood to share information about the P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program.

One of my family bucket list ideas is to take our family on a mission trip to a developing country, there is nothing like experiencing what it’s like to live in a developing country and see the needs first hand. Last year, P&G provided our family with a water demonstration kit and I was able to offer our boys a glimpse of what children in developing countries must do to have clean drinking water.  This hands on experiment definitely lit a fire in our boys to make a difference for those in need of basic essentials such as clean water. Access to safe drinking water is a basic human right, however many are living without access to clean water.

The greatest gift we can give to our children is to instill a heart of giving, service and empathy. All children are born with an innate sense of charity and compassion, it’s our job as parents to nurture it and empower the next generation of social good advocates.

Purifying Water at Home – A Fun, Family-Friendly Activity That Gives Back

I’m excited to share that P&G is now selling the Purifier of Water packets to do this fun and educational activity at home with your families. By purchasing one P&G Purifier of Water packet, not only will your family take part in a fun and impactful experiment, but you will be donating 3 months’ worth of clean drinking water to a child in a developing country.

*For each set of packets purchased, $1.80 will be donated to the Children’s Safe Drinking Water Fund, which is a charitable fund managed by the Greater Cincinnati Foundation. For more information, please visit www.csdw.org.

For more than 175 years, P&G has been devoted to developing cleaning innovation through brands such as, Tide, Bounty, Swiffer and Dawn. P&G scientists used the research behind laundry detergent to invent P&G Purifier of Water packets more than 15 years ago in partnership with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Nine billion liters of clean water have provided since September of 2015, helping to save tens of thousands of lives.

Power of Clean

With Spring Break around the corner, this would be the perfect memory making activity to do with your kids and a great teaching tool to talk to your children about the clean drinking water crisis, the ability for science and technology to help in solving global issues, and the importance of giving to those in need. It’s a win-win and your children will never forget it!

Check out this video of my boys doing the clean water experiment, the looks on their faces and their reactions as they see the P&G Purifier of Water packet at work is truly priceless.

Raising caring children is often dependent on the kinds of experiences our children have. Experiencing the Power of Clean experiment with our boys and learning about the program opened opportunities for conversation on giving back and how little it takes to make a real, potentially life-saving, difference.

    What a great learning experience! Water is such an important resource and especially here where we turn on the tap and see crystal clear water it can be easy to forget we need to conserve it and be responsible with our usage. Good luck to everyone who enters!

    Such a great experiment– I did something similar in the fifth grade and it was eye opening to me to see that people in other parts of the world actually needed filtration systems– we are so privelged, even in the most basic of ways! I love that every purchase gives three months of clean water to a family in need! Great initiative!

    It’s so sad that so many people don’t have access to clean water. I think this is a great way to teach kids about those less fortunate than us.

    What a wonderful educational activity for children to learn about the importance of clean water and how not everyone in the world has access to it. Thank you for hosting the giveaway so other parents can teach their children about this.
