Water access: our involvement with watering minds

#LacesForChange campaign

1. A crowdfunding campaign

To support water access for kids, the Danone Nations Cup first launched a crowdfunding campaign in partnership with the NGO Watering Minds, which ended on July 12th. The mechanism was simple: 3€ donation = 1 year of safe drinking water for one child.
60 000€ were collected during this first action helping 20 000 kids !

2. The #LacesForChange campaign

Following the crowdfunding campaign, the Danone Nations Cup goes one step further and launches its #LacesForChange campaign alongside the official outfitter Decathlon.
