How To Opt In & Get Started

 

Your challenge becomes official when you opt in here. We’ll email you a confirmation along with a few tips on how to make the most of your experience.

 

Whenever you drink water instead of a non-essential beverage, text Opt to 91999 to pass along your savings. Need a reminder? Every Opt For Water Wednesday we’ll text you a notification along with a link for you to easily donate your weekly beverage savings.

 

100% of your beverage savings donation is used by Vox to execute clean water projects in Africa. As little as $5 can give someone clean water for a year.

 

Spead the word, challenge your friends, and share your Opt For Water moments using the hashtag #OptForWater.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why drink water instead of other beverages?

Each year Americans spend approximately $3000 on non-essential beverages that are linked to health issues such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Opting For Water not only means better health, it means having more money to give back and help others.

Why Africa?

Over 350 million people in Africa do not have access to clean drinking water—the equivalent population of the United States & Australia combined.

How much of my donation is used to give people clean drinking water?

100% of your Opt For Water donations go toward Vox water projects that give clean drinking water to people in Africa.

How do I get an Opt For Water decal?

After you’ve registered and donated your first $5, we’ll mail you an Opt For Water decal. Put it on your water bottle or wherever. Don’t forget to share it with us and your followers using the hashtag #OptForWater.
