Instagram and Facebook posts:

Social Media Post #1: Every day, 6,000 children die of preventable water-related diseases (UNICEF). I’m on #ShowerStrike until I reach my fundraising goal to help stop this. Please help save lives by making an online donation. (Be sure to include your personal Shower Strike link)

Social Media Post #2: In areas without clean water, children often walk all day to return with only unsanitary water, preventing them from going to school. I’m on #ShowerStrike to help get children back into classrooms in East Africa. And, I'm starting to stink. Please help make a difference and get me back into the shower by donating online. (Be sure to include your personal Shower Strike link)

Social Media Post #3: In Africa, girls as young as 8 years old are sold into marriage in exchange for food and water so their families can survive. I’m on #ShowerStrike until I reach my fundraising goal to help provide clean water to free more girls. Please help make a difference by making an online donation! (Be sure to include your personal Shower Strike link)

Social Media Post #4: A $50 donation is enough to help me and Well Aware get a family of five access to clean water for the next 25 years. This means that the mother will no longer have to walk for miles every day, and the children won’t keep getting sick from drinking contaminated water. Will you donate enough to help a family get water? #ShowerStrike (Be sure to include your personal Shower Strike link)

Social Media Post #5: The average person can go without water for only 5 days. For the next 7 days, I’m raising money through #ShowerStrike so people don’t have to suffer from lack of access to clean water. Help me transform lives with Well Aware. (Be sure to include your personal Shower Strike link)

Social Media Post #6: For the cost of buying Starbucks for you and friend- you can transform someone’s life for decades to come. A $10 donation to Well Aware can help an individual get clean water for the next 25 years. Will you help me change lives? #ShowerStrike (be sure to include your personal Shower Strike link)

Social Media Post #7: 60% of water projects in Africa don't work- 100% of Well Aware's do. I'm on #ShowerStrike to help build more life-saving, sustainable water systems with Well Aware. Please help make a difference by donating online! (Be sure to include your personal Shower Strike link)

Social Media Post #8: 40 billion work hours are lost in Africa each year to the need to carry water. I'm on #ShowerStrike so more people can stop wasting hours fetching water and focus on economic activities (UNICEF). Please help make a difference by donating online! (Be sure to include your personal Shower Strike link)
