Sesquicentennial - it is hard to read, let alone say it, but it comes from Latin and means a 150th anniversary. Canada is turning one and a half centennials on July 1, 2017!
All Canadians agree that we live in one of the most blessed countries on the earth. The 2017 World Happiness Report ranked Canada #7. Canada is a clean and safe place with endless opportunities for our families. We have beautiful forests and fields, towering mountains, fresh air … and lots of clean water.
As you know, this is not the case in many parts of the world, so we invite you to join us in celebrating Canada's 150th anniversary by sharing our bounty with other nations—by sharing the gift of clean water.
Join our 150 for CANADA 150 campaign by donating or raising $150 for clean water projects. Ask your family, friends, neighbours and coworkers to join you on this special occasion and to give the precious gift of clean water.
Our goal is to raise $150,000 by July 1, 2018. This money will go towards building and repairing more broken wells, and installing more water chlorination and filtration systems in countries that desperately need clean water and sanitation.
