OWC, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, is celebrating its 30th anniversary and ongoing commitment to environmental causes with a fundraising program supporting clean water for kids. OWC has partnered with the water charity organization Splash with a goal of raising $250,000 by the end of 2018.
Donations can be made on the Splash website . OWC will be posting regular updates on the campaign’s progress and will provide information on how the donations are helping communities.
Other World Computing, commonly known as OWC, was founded in 1988 with the drive to provide solutions for customers’ technological needs. As a conscientiously driven corporate citizen, OWC supports a number of large-scale green initiatives, including organizations focused on providing access to clean water. Splash’s mission of providing children and communities with basic human needs aligns directly with OWC’s long-term priorities.
All funds raised during the campaign will go directly to water, sanitation and hygiene projects to support children living in urban poverty. In addition to matching donations up to $125,000, OWC will email a coupon to donors that can be used on their e-commerce site MacSales . Those who donate $50 – $499 will receive a coupon for $10 off an order, and donors who contribute in excess of $500 will receive a coupon for $50 off an order.
OWC Founder and CEO Larry O’Connor said “OWC has been committed to green practices since our inception, and as we celebrate 30 years in business, we renew that commitment by supporting Splash, who are bringing clean water and improved sanitation to children across the globe. These solutions will have lasting impact for generations, and empower independence and better living opportunities.”
He added: “OWC is excited to have set a goal of raising $250,000 during our anniversary year, and we are dedicated to matching $125,000 in donations. We thank our customers worldwide for 30 years of their support and look forward to a successful campaign to aid those in need.”
Alongside their partnership with Splash, OWC is proud to support photojournalist and Leica ambassador Florian Wagner’s African Waters 360° project; an exploratory photo-film mission in which Wagner and his team have taken flight via helicopter across African terrain, capturing 360° panoramic images of diverse African cities located near bodies of water and river systems.
The African Waters 360°project explores the value of water sources in terms of ecological balance in hope of bringing awareness to the need for responsible water policy while raising money for clean water charities.
