Water. It’s what we’re made of, and 71% of the earth’s surface is covered by water. You can survive only three to five days without water. 783 million people do not have access to clean water.
The statistics on why clean water is important to life go on and on. Suffice it to say, clean water couldn’t be more important to all of us. Each April, the Aveda Corporation puts together a huge fundraising campaign to raise funds and awareness for Clean Water causes all over the globe to honor Earth Month.
Atelier joins forces with Aveda to raise funds in San Jose, California, to help not only the local chapter of the Clean Water Fund, but also the farther-reaching Global Greengrants Fund.
We would LOVE your help in reaching our fundraising goals so we can help these organizations preserve and protect our local water sources. Here’s how:
While you’re at our Atelier locations, please buy raffle tickets. You’ll get your name on a ‘drop of water’ for each ticket, and you’ll have a chance to win that location’s prize basket of goodies, worth over $100. On your raffle ticket, you can write the name of your Atelier team member and if you win, he or she does too! You’d win the prize basket, and your Atelian gets to dip into our gift card grab bag! These donations go directly to the Clean Water Fund.
Another opportunity to help is with the purchase of a Light the Way candle for $12–100% of the purchase price will go to the Global Greengrants Fund. Fill your home with the inviting aroma of our limited-edition candle, and fill your heart with the knowledge that your purchase helps bring clean water to those in need. Features Aveda’s own pure-fume™ aroma of certified organic vanilla, cinnamon, ylang ylang and other pure flower and plant essences.
And our most fun opportunity to help is our Cocktails for Clean Water event, happening this Saturday, April 22, 6:30 pm at the Aloft Hotel Lounge, 4241 Moorpark Ave, San Jose. Our theme is Zoolander–and as Derek himself said: “Water is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty.” We’d love to see your best ‘Blue Steel’ face, duck lips and all!
Enjoy music, raffles, and cocktails, all while helping us raise money for the Clean Water Fund. Tickets are just $20, and include 2 raffle tickets and 1 cocktail. Raffle prizes include a night’s stay at the Hotel Valencia, gift cards from Santana Row and other stores, and more! Bring your friends, and have a fun night out while supporting a great community cause! Buy your tickets in advance at: Cocktails for Clean Water with Atelier or at the door.
Thank you for being a part of the Atelier family, we appreciate you!
