29 Dec The Mix: Plumbers Without Borders
Contractors are reaching out to help in an unexpected way. This caught my attention with the play on words from “Doctors Without Borders.” I think this is a beautiful cause and I wanted to share it with you.
You might not normally think of plumbers when you think of nonprofits, but Plumbers Without Borders seeks to connect volunteer plumbing professionals with organizations working in impoverished areas in need of safe drinking water and sanitation. They’ve built dialysis facilities in Ethiopia and implemented sanitation solutions in Asia and Haiti, among other projects.
Plumbers Without Borders is a grassroots effort, born from the desire to help people in dire need, where human suffering and disease is caused in part by a lack of safe plumbing and hygienic sanitation.
Recently, American Standard has teamed up with Plumbers Without Borders. For every Champion Toilet purchased, American Standard will donate one of their sanitary pans for distribution in a developing country. A nice product and a nice way to help those in need!
