WORLD RECORD SMASHED!

by Water For Water - Tuesday, February 14, 2012 

Through our distribution partners, Gloria Jean’s Coffees foundation, 'With Heart', Water For Water bottles were given to the team of talented athletes during an attempt to break the Guinness World Record of the “Treadmill, Fastest Time to Run 100 km.

The team needed to break the current record of 5 hrs, 42 mins and 32 secs with the treadmill traveling at above 18.75km/h for the duration to break the record!

The Team of 12 consisted of a mix of professional athletes to Lifeguards and novice runners. The 12 runners were: Craig Alexander, Steve Moneghetti, Michael Prince, John Mergler, Andrew Reid, Adriel Young, Stephen Madden, Clint Kimmins, Dave Matthews, Lisa Corrigan, Trent Woods and Alister Ross.

The goal was to break the record to raise money and awareness for the Kids Foundation.

Every year more children die as a result of injury than from all diseases combined. The Kids Foundation works to both educate about injury prevention as well as to support seriously injured children through a recovery program and supports hundreds of families Australia wide who have endured trauma, horrific burns and other life changing injuries.

The team smashed the record by 18 mins! The average treadmill speed for the last hour alone was 20.5km/hr.

Well done to the team and thank you to 'With Heart, a Gloria Jean’s Coffees foundation', Shift60 & The Kids Foundation for the opportunity to be apart of such a fantastic cause and event.

Tonsuya Community

From afar, it looks more like a pile of garbage - old plastics, rusting cans, rotting wood, spoiled goods. To enter the community, you have to wait for your turn so you can alternately cross the path with other people. For many, this is not what a community should be. But for the residents of Tonsuya, Caloocan City, this is their home.

Poverty can be clearly seen in their housing and environment conditions. Add to this their limited or no access to clean drinking water. The challenges just keep compounding.

Virginia who is 62 years old lives in this community with her two children and 82 year old mother. Her husband is a laborer and only goes home on weekends.

Virginia’s youngest son James has been hospitalised several times because of recurring diarrhea caused by drinking tap water. James’s doctor advised to make sure they are drinking safe clean water.

Virginia now gets water from Water For Water’s Caloocan City Water Station.

Here are some pictures from the community, our water station staff delivering water to the community and Virginia receiving clean water for her family!

Thank you to everyone who purchases Water For Water and for helping change the lives of Virginia and others in Tonsuya, Caloocan City.

BEASTMAN!

http://waterforwater.com.au/images/larger_end.png
by Water For Water - Tuesday, December 06, 2011 
Beastman is an artist based in Sydney and is a long time supporter and ambassador for Water For Water!

Beastman
is one of Australia’s most distinctive and prolific artists. He has exhibited his work and painted large scale murals all over Australia and New Zealand, as well as London, Berlin and New York.

It is no surprise that Beastman was one of the artist that donated work for Water For Water's Christmas Card project and we love how he turned his existing well known style
and infused it with a little bit of Christmas.

Check out his card on our online store.

If you are interested in more Beastman news, he is opening a solo exhibition 'Cosmic Nature' this Thursday night in Sydney and it's a show you cannot miss.

Beastman has hit a new stride with this latest body of work. Travelling around Australia and the world painting large scale aerosol works has noticeably evolved his unique and well recognised style, which he is taking from the street and into the gallery.

‘Cosmic Nature’ is a refreshing new series of paintings that explores the futuristic and overwhelming idea of nature coming to life in a way we could have never imagined. A new colour palette and further development of his distinctive style, reflects the different elements of our young world, organic lines and the often symmetrical geometric patterns found in nature.

This exhibition also acts as a launch for Beastman’s first publication. ‘Suburban Nature’ is a limited edition 60 page zine featuring street art, murals and collaborations created by the artist over 2 years throughout 10 different countries, documenting the journey and development of the artist’s distinct style.

THURSDAY 8 DECEMBER 2011 7PM EXHIBITION CONTINUES UNTIL 18 DECEMBER 2011

KIND OF — 72 OXFORD STREET, DARLINGHURST (SYDNEY)
