The group has raised funds through its Gifts of Hope program, which
provides ethical gifts abroad to further sustainability in developing

The contribution aims to improve sustainable water and sanitation
efforts in these communities, which have limited access to clean water
and are at risk for waterborne diseases from contaminated water or
insufficient sewage systems. The initiative supports the well-being of
children in these communities by reducing the workload of transporting
water to remote regions, allowing children to benefit from more time to
pursue an education.

Outside of Canada, there are still billions of world citizens without
access to the clean, safe water that is critical to the growth and
sustainability of any society. According to UNESCO's study on world
resources, 783 million people worldwide lack clean water for drinking,
cleaning, and bathing; and 2.5 billion lack access to basic water
sanitation.
