Jan. 24, 2013, Toronto – This year, with the sale of every pair of boots, Blundstone Footwear will donate $1 to Tin Roof Global providing water to rural Ugandan schools and educating children on water-related issues right here at home.

“While the financial contribution to Tin Roof Global is immensely important, we also hope that this campaign raises some awareness for the organization itself and the good that it does in the world,” said Blundstone Footwear's Ian Heaps.

In rural Uganda, children walk hours a day to fetch water from unsanitary watering holes. Tin Roof Global is working to change this fact. By installing these simple and effective water systems at rural schools, Tin Roof Global is helping to increase the health, education, and overall well-being of these children. When children spend a few minutes collecting clean water, rather than a few hours collecting potentially contaminated water, they not only avert health risks, but also free up more time in their day for learning.

Beyond their help abroad, Tin Roof Global also offers programs here at home that education youth of water issues that affect people around the world. In dozens of school’s across Southern Ontario, Tin Roof Global has taught important leadership skills to empower youth to make an impact both locally and globally.
