On World Water Day, March 22, 2019, Absolut Elyx launches its annual Raise It Forward social media movement, inviting people around the world to take action to combat the global water crisis. By posting a photo of a raised glass from March 22 through Earth Day, April 22 with the hashtag #RaiseItForward and mentioning @WaterForPeople and @AbsolutElyx, Absolut Elyx will contribute one week of safe water to an individual in need in the communities where Water For People works. When the movement reaches 10,000 posts, the donation amount will increase to one month of safe water for every #RaiseItForward post
Absolut Elyx is committed to helping solve the global water crisis. 2.1 billion people lack access to safe water, 4.5 billion lack access to adequate toilets, and it is not uncommon for women to walk four hours a day to fetch water from contaminated sources. Elyx is on a five-year mission to reach 100,000 people with safe drinking water through its support of Water For People’s work. Since partnering with Water For People in 2015, Elyx has impacted 40,000 people, who now have safe water for generations to come.
“Raise It Forward is an incredible campaign we look forward to every year because of the impact it can have on so many lives by providing clean, safe water worldwide,” said Miranda Dickson, Absolut Elyx Global Brand Director. “This year, we’re especially excited to increase the donation if we reach our goal of 10,000 posts globally. We truly believe in the work that Water For People is doing and look forward to bringing more awareness to this important issue.”
“We could not be more grateful to Absolut Elyx for continuing to raise awareness about the global water crisis through efforts like the Raise It Forward campaign. Inspiring people to raise a glass and, thereby, raise the profile of this important cause is ultimately how we will continue tackling the problem,” said Water For People CEO, Eleanor Allen. “What we take for granted – safe drinking water out of a tap – is what we believe everyone deserves. Thank you, Absolut Elyx, for continuing to be by our side on our journey toward this goal.”
In addition to #RaiseItForward, Absolut Elyx contributes to Water For People through the sales of Elyx Bottles and Elyx Boutique copper products.
