Giving Our Support to charity: water

So, what’'s next? We'’re supporting another wonderful initiative called charity: water, a non-profit organization that brings clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations.

There are 800 million people on the planet who don't have clean water. That’'s one of every nine people without access to the most basic of human needs. We at Zendesk have a deep respect for the work of charity: water, its mission, and model. One hundred percent of all public donations to charity: water goes directly to fund water projects. They don'’t offer grand solutions and billion dollar schemes. Instead they offer simple things that work, like freshwater wells, rainwater catchments, and sand filters. For about $20 a person, they know how to help millions. We are pleased to have charity: water as a Zendesk customer, and we'’re delighted to be a contributing partner to their important work.

"As proud Zendesk customers we're very happy to see the Zendesk team continuing to support our efforts to bring clean water to every person on the planet," said Scott Harrison, CEO, charity: water.
