BENEFITING: WELL AWARE INC
http://Wellawareworld.org"We have the ability to provide clean water for every man, woman and child on the Earth. What has been lacking is the collective will to accomplish this. What are we waiting for? This is the commitment we need to make to the world, now." ~ Jean-Michel Cousteau
We are raising awareness and funds during the duration of the Vans Warped Tour 2016 with our many partners Bringitback, TeamBackPack.net, and WellAwareWorld.org. There are still 750 million people in the world without access to clean potable water. Water is a natural necessity to all life on Earth and we believe that everyone should have access to this.
With thousands of kids coming to enjoy their summer experience at the Vans Warped Tour with their favorite upcoming bands and brands, they all understand the importance of water and staying hydrated during the extreme summer heat. Vans Warped Tour is the longest running tour in the US which goes this year from June 24 - August 13 and travels thru 41 cities and 30 states.
We will give these kids the opportunity to be apart of something even greater: to aid the world water crisis. Working with Well Aware and Vans Warped Tour, our goal is to provide access to safe and clean drinking water to countries around the world in need. After the tour, this campaign, Wells on Warped and H2FLOW, will use funds to build wells in these countries to provide access to water. One well can provide water for an entire village.

who is Wellawareworld.org
Well Aware is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with headquarters in Austin, Texas that provides innovative and sustainable solutions to water scarcity and contamination in Africa. We fund and implement life-saving water systems to drive economic development and build self-sufficient communities.
At Well Aware, our responsibility to the communities in which we work goes far beyond the drilling of a hole. More than 60 percent of existing water wells in Africa currently do not work. Our water systems work and they last because of realistic and responsible planning and collaboration. And, our partner communities are thriving as a result.
Since our first project was implemented in 2010, we have doubled our project capacity every year, and we have growing teams of experts who ensure our projects are completed on time, with integrity, and with the most cost-effective use of donor dollars. Our project planning and execution includes thorough technical evaluation and oversight, strategic nonprofit partnerships to further community success, hygiene and sanitation training, and community empowerment and support.
Well Aware conducts regular evaluations of all completed projects, but most of our partner communities no longer need us.

How We're Doing it Better
Our teams are innovative and evolving. Since we do it all—fundraising, operating, implementing, training, and community education--and providing follow-up— we have a working knowledge of technological, environmental, and cultural influences and limitations. Our team constantly tracks data from the field, and we tweak and improve our methods accordingly.
Our organization is lean and our operations are transparent. Our operational costs are low, and we do not try to mask them with public support models. Being ethical and transparent with our funding and operations is one of Well Aware’s core values.
We focus on impact. We are proud of the number of people we serve, but the quality of our work and results is as important as the quantity.
We work with communities, not for them. Our team understands that the communities in which we work know better than anyone else what they need, and we listen.
We know that two pairs of helping hands are better than one. Unlike much of the nonprofit sector, we have strong strategic nonprofit partnerships, often more than one on each project. For each dollar invested in Well Aware's water systems, it is matched in partner contributions for each community.
Well Aware's water projects adhere to our organization's project approval and execution process and meet our strict sustainability criteria. Each project is tailored to community needs and potential, as well local environmental conditions and projections. We drill and rehab water wells, install rainwater collection systems, and install gravity driven pipelines.
