Here are some ideas to involve your church in Compassion Water of Life:

    Water of Life makes an ideal focus for a church service, youth group, Bible study or small group meeting. 

    To make your presentation even more powerful and memorable local advocates, within Compassion’s Advocate Network, can help you with a free demonstration kit, including a bucket, filter, hose, filter cleaner, hanger and simple instructions. There’s no better way to demonstrate the power and effectiveness of Compassion Water of Life than offering people a glass of water that has been filtered by the Compassion safe water system. To be connected with a Regional Advocate Manager, call (800) 336-7535 or email the Advocate Network, inforequestvolunteer@us.ci.org

    Offer Compassion Water of Life demonstration kit to your youth group and see how they can use their energy and creativity to raise money to provide many more safe water systems to children in need. 

    Ideas could include finding and filtering the dirtiest water they can find and then getting people to sponsor their youth leader to drink it!
