2020 Shower Strike

About Shower Strike

We do, too.


That’s why we’re going on #ShowerStrike — skipping showers, raising awareness for global water issues, and fundraising to provide 30,000 more deserving people with lasting clean water. For the people that we are helping, a clean drink of water is not a guarantee. A shower is often a luxury. It's the least we can do to skip our showers for a week, so that others can survive and thrive.


Over the past 11 years, Shower Strikers from across the world have raised over $1.5 million to build sustainable water systems in East Africa, providing over 100,000 people with lasting clean water.


Join this year's #ShowerStrike and help create a world where every human has access to the basic right of clean water. For every $15 we raise, one more person gains access to this vital resource.


Do I have to skip showers?​

Only if you want to.

There are many alternatives if skipping showers doesn't fit with your routine. All that matters is raising awareness and fundraising to change lives.


How does Shower Strike work?

Volunteers across the globe unite and vow to skip showers during Shower Strike (April 22nd-29th) until they have met their fundraising goal for building clean water systems in East Africa. Our nationally-recognized fundraiser enables anyone who wants to help Well Aware’s cause make a big impact in a short time.

You can participate as an individual or as part of a team. And - we make it easy for you! We provide you with all the support, resources, and love you need to raise life-saving funds easily and have a successful #ShowerStrike.

Step 1. Join the Shower Strike.

Step 2. Set your fundraising goal (We recommend $1,000, but you can set any level. Most people are surprised by how much they can raise, so we always suggest you may aim high!)

Step 3. Invite your friends, neighbors, family and coworkers to support you and donate.

Step 4. Have fun!

"Psycho" for Clean Water:

Finding yourself without water is nothing short of horror.


Actress and writer, Mary Elizabeth Ellis Day, teams up with director, Mo Perkins, to join us for a cheeky spoof of Hitchcock's "Psycho" to raise awareness for Shower Strike and raise more funds for Well Aware's sustainable clean water systems.
