Goal progress is updated every week based on reporting from our partners.

How It Works

Step 1: Purchase a Thirst Initiative beverage from a local partner

Step 2: Congratulations! You just helped give 50¢ to clean water

Drink Up

There are two things we love for certain in this world, clean water and drinks.

Coffee, beer, wine, kambucha, it doesn’t matter! We're partnering with beverage companies of all shapes and sizes to reach our goals.

Home and Away

We split the funds raised equally between our international and our Canadian water projects.

We believe that everyone, everywhere, deserves access to clean, safe drinking water. That’s why we split our work 50/50 between clean water projects in developing countires, and here in Canada.

Where the Money Goes

100% of public donations go directly to funding our clean water projects around the world.

We cover the cost of our overhead so that we can guarantee that every cent you donate goes towards helping others.


We’ve partnered with some incredible organizations who share our dream of ending the global water crisis. Every time you order a menu item with our logo beside it you help donate 50¢ to our clean water projects around the world.
