What is the SFU UNICEF?
Simon Fraser University United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (SFU UNICEF) is an SFSS club that is focused on advocating and educating others of the perils that millions of children face throughout the developing world. By hosting several fundraising events throughout the SFU campuses and in the community, the club is also devoted to raising funds to help UNICEF Canada complete their mission of improving the lives of children in 156 different countries.
What is the Tap Project?
It all started in 2007 in New York City, where restaurants would ask their patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free, and all funds raised would support UNICEF’s efforts to bring clean and accessible water to millions of children around the world. Since then it has evolved into an award-winning project as well as a nationwide campaign. Today, the UNICEF Tap Project celebrates the clean water we enjoy on a daily basis by encouraging celebrity, restaurant, volunteer, corporate, and government supporters to give this vital resource to children in developing countries. The concept is basic and compelling: “When You Take Water, Give Water.”
