Although schools are on summer break, love and effort still goes out to help the people of the Azawak. Thirty-five restaurants in Connecticut are asking patrons to pay $1 for each glass of tap water they order. Organized by area Rotary clubs, the funds will benefit Amman Imman's construction of borehole wells in the Azawak as well as a school in the Phillipines that needs clean water. What a cool idea! One hotel is asking their staff and guests to match funds raised by the hotel's restaurant.
