The UNICEF Tap Project, which was created in 2007 to raise awareness of the world water crisis, has since grown to become a powerful nation-wide movement.
All money raised through the 2010 UNICEF Tap Project events will be allocated to the countries and areas UNICEF has identified as among the most in need. Those countries include Togo, Central African Republic, Vietnam, Guatemala and, of course, Haiti.
With 120 UNICEF hosted events around the country during World Water Week (March 21-27), there is something and somewhere for everyone to become involved.
