In 2007, the UNICEF Tap Project was born in New York City based on a simple concept: restaurants would ask their patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free, and all funds raised would support UNICEF’s efforts to bring clean and accessible water to millions of children around the world.
Growing from just 300 New York City restaurants in 2007 to thousands across the country today, the UNICEF Tap Project has quickly become a powerful national movement.
During World Water Week, March 21-27, 2010, the UNICEF Tap Project will once again raise awareness of the world water crisis and vital funds to help the millions of children it impacts daily. All funds raised support UNICEF's water, sanitation and hygiene programs, and the effort to bring clean and accessible water to millions of children around the world.

Dine at a Participating Restaurant and Save Kids' Lives
Thousands of restaurants across the country will participate in the UNICEF Tap Project during World Water Week 2010 (March 21-27).
Dining in one—and donating $1 for the tap water you would normally receive for free—is a great way to help UNICEF provide lifesaving water and sanitation to kids around the world.
