40 Days of Water

Lent 2011 (March 9 - April 23)

Choose to make tap water your only beverage for 40 days between March 9 - April 23 to help Artisan and the Ugandan Water Project provide clean water for people in Africa who don’t have a choice. By giving up what you’d normally drink in exchange for the water from your tap you can save that money to help build clean water projects for communities in Uganda.

So ditch the morning coffee and o.j., leave out the lunchtime soda, and cancel the evening beverage! And collect the money you would have spent in a jar and bring it to worship on Sundays. Let’s watch the donation pile up!

Our 40 days of water campaign is inspired by the good people at Blood:Water Mission, but we’re putting our own unique twist on it.

So why is Forty Days actually 46 days long?
Forty Days follows the traditional Lenten season calendar which consist of 40 fast days and 6 sabbath rest days. So essentially you get one day a week off. Most people take Sunday off. How you choose to observe Forty Days is up to you.
