Summary: “Today, 780 million people lack access to clean water, 125 million of whom are children under 5, and thousands of children still die each day because of inadequate access to safe water.” A team of engineers have created the Sweat Machine which extracts sweat from clothing and purifies it into clean drinking water. Athletes and many others in Sweden and the UK have participated in “Sweat for Water” to bring awareness to the millions that become ill or die from dehydration. “Take the dare and drink a glass of sweat.” 

Think About:

- How much money was invested in this campaign?
– Can the sweat machine be practically used by those who don’t have water or is its main purpose to raise awareness?
– What should money raised by this campaign be used for?
– How can this campaign be expanded?
