Cafe Yumm! Supports UNICEF'S Tap Project
March 13, 2008 // Franchising.com // Café Yumm! is supporting UNICEF's Tap Project, a campaign that celebrates clean and accessible tap water available as an every day privilege to millions. Beginning Sunday, March 16 participating Café Yumm! restaurants will invite customers to donate a minimum of $1 for the tap water they would normally get for free. According to UNICEF, for every dollar raised, a child will have clean drinking water for 40 days. UNICEF provides access to safe water and sanitation facilities while promoting safe hygiene practices in more than 90 countries.
All Café Yumm! restaurants have always provided free, self-serve tap water which over 80% of our customers drink with each visit. Since the Eugene/Springfield area is blessed with some of the cleanest, freshest water in the nation, it is desire to share our good fortune with others. We care about water and invite our customers to join our commitment to provide clean water to all children, everywhere.
The Tap Project ends on Saturday, March 22, which is World Water Day as designated by the United Nations in 1992. For more information about the Tap Project, visit www.tapproject.org. For more information about World Water Day, visit, www.unwater.org/worldwaterday/flashindex.html.
