MiiR donated 100% of our Black Friday product sales to charity: water

Shop with purpose

Through charity: water’s local implementing partner Water for People, we are helping bring clean water and better futures to kids in the Gicumbi District in the Northern Province of Rwanda. Ideal for its mountainous terrain, water systems are a combination of large-scale motorized and gravity-fed piped systems. Water for People hopes to gain complete water coverage in this region by 2024.

In this small, landlocked country in East Africa, 55% of the population lives below the income poverty line. In the Gicumbi District in particular, only 63% of the population has access to an improved water source and just 13% has access to handwashing facilities.

Our Black Friday sales funded water projects at three schools that will serve an estimated 3,000 people in total, in addition to latrines and handwashing stations coupled with hygiene and sanitation trainings. Oftentimes these trainings include a menstrual hygiene component, allowing more girls to regularly attend school. Implementation will begin in January 2022 with an estimated completion date of summer 2023.

Clean water changes everything

MiiR is no stranger to the clean water crisis. In fact, our very first grant from product sales funded three hand-dug wells in Liberia, Africa in early 2011, and we traveled there to better understand the crisis, document the progress and meet the impacted communities.

Our first MiiR x charity: water water projects were also in Africa – Ethiopia and Central African Republic – in 2012. Since that time, charity: water has uniquely developed and deployed cutting-edge handpump sensors to thousands of project sites with the critical mission to keep water flowing. Lasting 10 years without a battery change and installed in 10 minutes, these sensors collect data and identify when a site may require maintenance or repair so that service need not be disrupted or halted altogether.

The water crisis disproportionately affects women and girls. Worldwide, women and girls spend an estimated 200 million hours every day collecting water. Clean water changes everything — it can improve health, boost local economies, empower women, and enable girls to get an education.

Design forward. Generosity driven.™

We make premium stainless steel vessels for coffee, beer, wine and food, all of which rely on three things at their core: water, earth and the relationship people have with both. We sit at the nexus of these three critical elements by setting aside a portion of revenue to fund projects focused on clean water, a healthy environment, and strong communities.
