Water-Right Sponsors "Denim Days for Puerto Rico's Aid"
Employees Paid to Wear Jeans During the Week
Last November, Water-Right sponsored a "Denim Days for Puerto Rico's Aid" fundraiser to aid hurricane relief. During this time, employees of Water-Right and Water-Right's Clean Water Center could pay $2 per day to wear jeans during the week instead of following the company’s normal dress code. At the end of the month, Water-Right would match the contribution collected.
Employees raised over $1,200, and with Water-Right's matched funds, the company donated $3,500 to Puerto Rico no Está Apaga’o ("Our Light Is Stronger, Puerto Rico Is Not Spiritless"). The charity organization, which is run by comedian Molusco, has a goal of bringing assistance wherever it is needed and consists of three main platforms: online donations through YouCaring.com, supply collection stations on the East Coast, and a group of volunteers who handle, ship and distribute donations. T-shirts can also be purchased on their website with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the charity. Molusco is also donating his time and talent by doing a U.S. tour and donating all the profits.
According to a statement from the company, Water-Right is proud to support the needs of those recovering from the hurricane disaster. They hope their humble contribution can inspire others to do what they can, no matter how big or small.
