You can make a real difference for communities in need of safe and sustainable water



Hosting a dinner party for a good cause has never been easier. Dinner4Good allows you to organise your dinner, invite your friends and keep track of your event through one website. Your guests can donate right through the site and manage their responses. Perhaps you could ask guests to donate £1 every time they drink water or any other kind of beverage. A “Let’s Drink to Water” collection tin can be passed around or centrally located at your dinner for easy giving!
