Thank you to Allen Schauffler and King 5 News for helping us spread the message!

I just saw this on King 5 news, and it’s so cool!
Here’s the mission of Plumbers Without Borders:
“To support the work of persons and organizations who are striving to improve the lives of people who are suffering from water and sanitation poverty.
Plumbers Without Borders is a grassroots effort, born from the desire to help people in dire need, where human suffering and disease is caused in part by a lack of safe plumbing and hygienic sanitation. Examples would be Haiti after the earthquake; the Gulf Coast hit by Hurricane Katrina, and other impoverished areas.

Our vision includes building a networked directory of skilled Plumbing and Mechanical tradespeople, related professionals, sources for needed materials, and other resources. This directory will function in synergy with other organizations to combine, share, and increase mutual benefits, to achieve common goals.”


I have access to clean water every day, and I guess that I take this for granted.


UNICEF reports that worldwide, over 884 million people use unsafe drinking water.


That’s just not right.


Thanks to Plumbers Without Borders for your service!
