My GenConnect UNICEF Tap Project Video

By admin | November 3, 2011

I have been a UNICEF ambassador for more than 10 years now and one of UNICEF’s projects that is most important to me is their Tap Project. Tap helps provide funding for better access to clean water for millions of children throughout the world, especially in Africa. How Tap works is simple; restaurants like Red Rooster Harlem, ask their patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free, and all funds raised go to support UNICEF’s efforts to bring clean and accessible water to millions of children in developing countries.

Since its inception in 2007, the UNICEF Tap Project has raised almost $2.5 million in the U.S. and has helped provide clean water for millions of children globally. Just the other day, genConnect featured their video of my passion for UNICEF’s Tap Project. Check out my genConnect video below about why UNICEF and the Tap Project are so important to me.
