Buy Water Change Lives!
Want to make a difference in the world? Buy Thankyou Water! 900 million people cannot access safe drinking water whilst Australians spend $600 million each year on bottled water! Inspired to make things right, this social enterprise was founded by young Australians where 100% of their profit funds water projects in developing countries in Cambodia & Uganda. Each bottle purchased provides a month’s worth of water for someone in need. Head over to the Thankyou water tent on festival day to meet some of the volunteers and buy your Thankyou Water!
