Thirsty. 768 million people are thirsty. Oh, so thirsty.
The UNICEF Tap Project is trying to provide assistance to those staggering numbers. All you need to do is put down your phone. It’s that easy. (Or is it?) For every ten minutes you don’t use or touch your phone, national sponsors partnering with UNICEF will give a day’s worth of clean water to one of those 768 million people.
This challenge was just too good not to share.
Some ideas for those of you who “must” use your phones during the day:
1. Do the challenge while you sleep. At some point in the day, your phone has to be put down.
2. Be strategic. Plan a block of time to answer your e-mails, update your FB status, post your Instagram pictures etc. You can start and stop, BUT, if you do, be sure jot down the number of hours/minutes you stopped at.
DO something with all the time you would’ve spent on your phone.
How long can you go?
P.S. I’m currently at 2 hours.
