Nov. 4: Thirst Project to engage students in global water crisis
October 28, 2015
The Thirst Project is a campaign committed to ending the world water crisis that currently affects more than 748 million people. The mission of the Thirst Project is to build a socially-conscious generation of young people who end the global water crisis.
Follett has partnered with the Thirst Project to launch the 2015-16 school tour, in which Thirst’s Road Warriors will visit more than 100 Follett-managed campus store locations to discuss the water crisis. Follett and Thirst’s partnership stems from a shared belief in student empowerment and universal access to essential human resources, like water and education. These tour visits often result in the formation of local student chapters to support the Thirst cause.

Thirst’s Road Warriors will visit Webster on Wednesday, Nov. 4, from 1-3 p.m. in the Winifred Moore Auditorium to discuss the water crisis and empower students to spread awareness and conduct fundraisers that support the construction of sustainable wells in impoverished communities.
Attendees will be entered for a chance to win a selfie-stick, power bank portable charger or a $100 Bookstore gift card. The first 24 people through the doors will receive a 32 oz. reusable water bottle with a 20% off coupon valid on a single gift or apparel item at the Bookstore.
