Black Tie International: UNICEF's TAP Project


 

UNICEF's TAP Project

 

 

 

Houston and Woodlands Restaurants Rally for UNICEF’s TAP Project

 

 

HOUSTON — Approximately one thousand restaurants participated in the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s nationwide UNICEF Tap Project
during World Water Week . The UNICEF Tap Project is a campaign to provide clean water to children around the world and raise awareness of the world water crisis, by inviting restaurant patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free.

Since 2007, the UNICEF Tap Project has raised nearly $1.5 million in the U.S. and has helped to provide clean water to millions of children around the world. Participants included high-profile media executives, chefs, and a host of celebrities, such as Lucy Liu, Joel Madden and Marcus Samuelsson. The UNICEF Tap Project is the first of its kind—a national grassroots campaign offering individuals and restaurants across the nation a simple and effective way to make a difference in a child’s life.

This marks the third year of the UNICEF Tap Project’s nationwide expansion, with generous support from local restaurants such as Bistro Don Camillo, Bistro Provence, Brasserie Max & Julie, Byrd’s Market & Cafe, Café Rabelais, Catalan Food and Wine, Edloe Deli, Firkin and Phoenix, Hubbell & Hudson Market & Bistro, Jasper’s, Niko Niko, Ouisie’s Table, and The Black Walnut Café.

“The UNICEF Tap Project brings an incredibly simple concept to encourage global citizens to help bring clean and safe water to the children of the world,” said Cary Attar, CEO and Founder of Hubbell and Hudson. “As a UNICEF Tap Project volunteer, I am glad that so many restaurants and volunteers agree it is our duty to use tap water—our single most bountiful natural resource—to reduce child mortality,” added Ann Holmes, US Fund for UNICEF Regional Board Member.

In addition to restaurants and volunteers raising awareness, Gremillion & Co. Fine Art hosted a reception featuring a presentation by Dr. Peter Harvey, Senior Advisor for Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene for UNICEF.  As guests mingled between the gallery’s paintings and sculptures, discussions turned to the critical role clean water plays in children’s health and survival.  US Fund for UNICEF Southwest Region Advisory Board Member Kimberly Gremillion remarked on the importance of water: “Access to clean water is critical, it does more than save lives, it turns lives around.”

Clean water is essential, yet nearly 900 million people worldwide lack access to it — and nearly half of those people are children. UNICEF is working with its partners to reduce the number of people without access to safe water and basic sanitation by 50% by 2015, which will also save children at risk from waterborne illnesses, the second highest cause of preventable childhood deaths. Every day, 24,000 children die of preventable causes, and UNICEF is committed to doing whatever it takes to make that number zero.

With $1, UNICEF can provide one child access to safe, clean water for 40 days.

For more information about the UNICEF Tap Project, please visit www.tapproject.org  or call
1-877-PROJ-TAP.  Donations of $5 can be made
year-round by texting “TAP” to UNICEF (864233).

About UNICEF

UNICEF has saved more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization in the world. Working in over 150 countries, UNICEF provides children with health care, clean water, nutrition, education, emergency relief, and more. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF supports UNICEF’s work through fundraising, advocacy, and education in the United States.

UNICEF is at the forefront of efforts to reduce child mortality worldwide.  There has been substantial progress—the annual number of under-five deaths dropped from 13 million in 1990 to 8.8 million in 2008.  But still, 24,000 children die each day from preventable causes. Our mission is to do whatever it takes to make that number zero by giving children the essentials for a safe and healthy childhood. For more information, visit
