What is Charity: Water?
Charity: Water brings clean and safe drinking water to developing countries. A non-profit organization, they were founded in 2006 with the ambitious goal to end the global water crises. With help from people like you, they have been able to serve 14.7 million people, fund 91,000+ projects in 29 different countries. 100% of all donations to them goes to the field – with none of it going to advertising, administration, or other operating expenses.

What can you do to participate?
Excited? There are many ways you can get involved as well!
Sponsor a Stylist
At Mark Pardo we are opening up our dress code to allow for color or jeans based on sponsorship. This fun, interactive method will bring a splash of color to the salons as well as raise money.
How does it work?
Anyone can sponsor an advisor or stylist, allowing them to wear color and/or jeans to work! Sponsorship can be for a day or for the whole month. Sponsorships will run from April 1, 2022 through April 30, 2022.
Daily: $5 per person per day for color, $5 per person per day for jeans, OR $10 per person per day for both.
Monthly: $75 per person for color, $75 per person for jeans, OR $150 per person for the duration of April.
All proceeds for sponsorships will be donated to Charity: Water where 100% of donations goes to the field! For more information talk to any of our stylists, advisors, or team leads. Together we can make the world a better place!
Virtual Aveda Earth Month Runwalk
The average distance for women and children in developing countries to walk for water is 3.7 miles. That’s a long way to get water that isn’t even always clean. Part of our partnership with Aveda and Charity: Water is doing a RunWalk. Challenge yourself by walking 3.7 miles every day or even a week. Imagine having to do that just to get a glass of water.
In partnering with MoveSpring App we made it simple for you to put in personal goals and track it. MoveSpring has waved the usual sign-up fee so participants can donate directly to Charity: Water. It’s very simple to get involved:
1. Sign up for the MoveSpring app. Put in the code “Aveda” to get the campaign free.
2. Select “Aveda Earth Month 2022 RunWalk”.
3. Make a goal of daily steps.
On donating we recommend two options: Simple & Easy – one time donation of $10 OR (for those who like a challenge): Walk Challenge: $1 for every mile you walk.
You can donate directly on Charity: Water as you go, at the beginning, or at the end (after you calculated your miles):Donate Now
