Skyo And The Thirst Project Give The Gift Of Clean Drinking Water

OAK BROOK, Ill., Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Almost one billion people in the world do not have access to a clean water source. Skyo is calling on college students across the country to take action this holiday season – with a simple click. Through Skyo's partnership with the Thirst Project, students can help give the gift of clean drinking water to those who need it most.


For each new person who likes the Skyo Facebook page ( or follows Skyo on Twitter ( through Dec. 31, 2012, Skyo will donate $1 to Thirst. Skyo has set a goal of donating $5,000 to Thirst's holiday giving campaign, which will help bring clean water to 5,000 people in the African village of Edlozini.

Skyo's support of Thirst is based on a shared commitment to ensuring young people have a better educational experience and access to essential knowledge and resources. Skyo is committed to providing affordable access to the cheap textbooks students need. Likewise, Thirst is a nonprofit organization that works to help people gain access to clean drinking water.

"Skyo is proud to support the Thirst Project's mission to educate students about the clean water crisis," said Noel Burkman, Director of eCommerce for "Skyo is committed to providing a better educational experience for students, and programs like Thirst are a great way for students to learn more about a global issue and how they can be part of the solution."

The global water crisis is a problem that affects more than one billion people. Thirst helps build water wells around the world to generate and promote access to clean drinking water. A freshwater well in most developing nations costs as little as $5,000 to build, and can change an entire community's lives forever.
