The Necklace Project
Groups that are looking for a way to have fun and support LWW from home are invited to join in The Necklace Project. Visit The Necklace Project website for a how-to video, written instructions and suggestions for receiving and sending donations for these hand-crocheted necklaces.
Wherever they are offered the necklaces are a hit! More than $45,000 has been raised for clean water through the Necklace Project. This accounts for 9,000 necklaces hand-made and distributed for a $5 donation per necklace by women's groups around the nation.
Invite your women's group to join The Necklace Project and help provide clean water for all God's children.
Clean Water Sunday
You and your congregation can share the living water of Jesus Christ by joining in prayer with and for Living Waters for the World. Hosting an annual Clean Water Sunday, your congregation will increase its understanding of water issues affecting over 600 million lives and unite in spirit with our brothers and sisters who suffer from contaminated water.
Clean Water Sunday is inspired by World Water Day which was designated by the United Nations as a way to increase awareness of the world's growing water crisis. World Water Day is observed every March 22, but congregations may designate any date as Clean Water Sunday.
Living Waters for the World has prepared a full set of worship resources and educational materials that can be used or adapted to suit the needs of your group. To get started:
