• A shirt that gives the gift of clean water


    663 million people in the world live without clean water and we don’t think that’s right. That’s why DonandMerit donates $5 to our giving partner charity: water when you buy a shirt.

Why Water?

Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.

Water affects everything: education, health, poverty and especially women and children who often bear the responsibility for collecting and carrying the water home. It’s not unusual for them to walk 3 hours every day to find water… contaminated water.

Time spent collecting water is time not spent in school, or earning an income and taking care of their families.

Meanwhile, every $1 invested in clean water can yield $4–$12 in economic returns.

It’s a solid investment; access to clean water is perhaps the single most powerful tool for sparking economic growth that humanity has ever known.

How does it work?

For every 200 shirts we sell, we send $1,000 to charity: water to put 100% of our donation to use in a community with an urgent need for clean water.

While the project is under construction, charity: water provide us with updates that we share with you. After approx. 20 months, we receive the GPS coordinates, photos of the completed project, and information about the community that we have helped.

We share this information with our customers via e-mail, web and social media to show the direct impact of their purchase. Not a customer yet? No problem. You can still receive updates on our work by signing up here

You can also contribute directly to our campaign page at charity:water/donandmerit or start your own fundraising campaign. 100% of the money you raise builds water projects, and every single dollar is tracked using photos and GPS coordinates. Read more about charity: water’s 100% promise.
