Water charity launches contest to raise money for at-risk areas


Oklahoma City charity Water4 launched a photo contest to bring awareness to the worldwide water crisis. Water4 is inviting Facebook friends, Twitter and Instagram followers and pinners from Pinterest to send in photos and videos showing their appreciation for free flowing water.

The theme for the contest is “What does water mean to you?” With each submission, a donation of $5 will be made to Water4. Also, any $5 donation made until midnight on Dec. 31 will be matched.

Three submissions will be chosen as the winners, and each will receive a well dug and a pump installed.
