The Book

Helping someone see and learn about a world outside of their own is a difficult task at any age, but especially for young children. Clean Water For Elirose provides a tangible, concrete way for parents and teachers to educate young children about the difficult circumstances some children face in other parts of the world.

Click here or on the book below for a FULL Preview!

The book has already been written and illustrated. All that's left is for it to be officially published! The $3500 raised here will be used for printing and making the book affordable for teachers and parents.

The back of the book contains activities for classrooms and families and a list of organizations to donate to that build clean water wells. The ideas and activities are simple and easy for even the youngest child to participate in and tangibly make a difference in the lives of other children around the globe. 

Pay What You Can

This book is about inspiring young kids to be global citizens, not about profit margins. In that spirit, we're offering a copy of Clean Water for Elirose as a reward for any pledge of $3 or more. $3 is a few coins shy of the cost of printing and shipping the book to you, but collectively we'll surely cover our cost and we're more excited about your young ones getting their hands on a copy of the book! Give $3 or give a little more and get a copy today.

Building Wells

The story of Elirose is about bringing a clean water well to a small village without clean water access. The book is more than just a fictional story though, it's actually a tool to do what it says, build wells.
