News It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Nearly two years on, the pandemic continues to impact our lives. Across the world, in every country we work in, COVID-19 has affected our operations, as well as underscoring the importance of our clean water, sanitation and hygiene work. With the Coronavirus Pandemic, Just a Drop's work has become even more critical! However, despite this, we've achieved some incredible results thanks to the dedication of our team, our in-country partners and our tireless supporters. But we still have work to do, and your support means more to us than ever before. We'd like to invite you to support Just a Drop this holiday season by taking part in one of our events: The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021! Just a Drop has been chosen as a charity in the Big Give Christmas Challenge - the UK’s biggest digital match funding platform. This means that if you make a donation between the 30th November and Tuesday 7th December it will have TWICE the impact! Can you help us to raise £20,000 that will support our projects team to develop life-changing programmes? All you need to do to get involved is to donate to Just a Drop through the Big Give Platform between the 30th November and 7th December. Every donation that you make will support our core costs. With your support, we'll develop our vital hygiene work. You'll help girls stay in school as we'll develop our menstrual hygiene programme. And with the development of an income generating loans programme, you'll empower women to escape the poverty trap. Find out how you can get involved here: https://www.justadrop.org/thebiggivechristmaschallenge Christmas Jumper Day 2021! Friday 3rd December is Just a Drop's Christmas Jumper Day! Wear a silly jumper on all of your zoom calls that day and ask your colleagues to do the same. Then donate £5 to Just a Drop - you could even set up a JustGiving Page to track how much your company has raised for our transformational work or donate through the Big Give Website to double your donation! Can't do it on Friday 3rd December? Not to worry! You can pick any day that works for you. The important thing is getting on your Christmas Jumper and raising money to enable even more people to access safe water this Christmas.
