WINE TO WATER NON-PROFIT 501(c)(3)
Our journey began back in April 2016 while attending our first humanitarian trip to the Dominican Republic. One of the social impact activities included in our stay was the ceramic water filter factory- located in the small town of Higuerito. This is where we got involved with Wine To Water, an non-profit organization based in Boone, NC, committed to delivering clean water solutions to those in need. With five (5) facilities located in Amazon, Cambodia, Dominican Republic/Haiti, East Africa and Nepal, this truly amazing group is dedicated to enhance life through clean water by providing innovative water filters, wells, sanitation and education programs.
663 million people lack access to clean water; that is 1 in 10 people
2.4 billion people lack access to improved sanitation
Every 90 seconds, a child dies from a water related illness
Wine To Water is committed to serve in communities to provide water for those in needs
With the help of facilitators and contributors like you Wine To Water has been able to provide life-saving water to over 600 000 people in 25 countries.
With these alarming statistics, the decision to get involved came naturally. For us, clean water is the first step in the journey of transformation. We will travel to the ends of the earth to provide people with clean water, because we believe water is life. Through the power of joining forces, we know all of us together can make a difference in many lives. #OnPurpose
We have seen with our own eyes and work with our own hands to testify how people’s lives are forever impacted by clean water.
Would you be ready to get involved? Whether you host an event and donate a portion of the revenues, offer a sponsorship, bring together a group on a humanitarian trip, the possibilities are endless. We are very fortunate with the life we have been given thus the need to Give Back and Pay It Forward.
We would welcome the chance to discuss these meaningful opportunities further with you.

RICHARD MARCHAND OPÉRATION ENFANT SOLEIL
“My biggest dream is to save ALL the sick kids in the world!” – Richard Marchand
Richard is a remarkable young man from Quebec Canada, living with Trisomy 21 (down syndrome). His own limitations have nothing to do with his mission of healing all sick kids though. The only reason why he as been dedicated to this cause for over 17 years now is that his heart breaks when he sees kids suffering.
His story inspired us to get involved by organizing ad hosting different activities and events, including three (3) Fundraising Charity Cruises and creating his own website where you can read the story and support him by giving to his cause. Since the beginning of his journey, he has raised over half a million dollars… and counting! Last but not least, have a look at his now famous bracelet collection. We bet you will be buying more than one… we sure did!
His website www.richardmarchand.ca is presented in French language. Don’t be intimidated though, it will always be a pleasure for us to translate, and you can even correspond directly with his parents Claudine and Al in English
