2U Supports Charity:Water in 2013 - #H2O2U

Every day 5,000 children die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. Without proper access to fresh water, children around the world are struggling to survive. This year, 2U chose to support Charity:Water by raising money to bring fresh water and sanitation systems to communities in India. Our #H202U fundraising ends on December 31, 2013, and there’s still time for anyone to continue donating any amount. For example, a $20 donation will give one person in India clean water for a year.


Throughout 2013, we’ve held events across our offices in New York, Maryland and Los Angeles, allowing employees to participate in happy hours, water walks and silent auctions, all which raised money for Charity:Water. Employees, friends, family and local community members have all contributed to our events and our total amount raised so far.

Our North Carolina office will be hosting the last event of the year December 16th from 7–9 p.m. in Chapel Hill.  All are welcome to attend the happy hour. 

We’ve had a lot of help from local sponsors in the cities in which our offices are located. Thank you for your contributions!
