We started the Phase Out program in January of this year. As you probably already know, every time you finish a case, we give $20 for each unused phase to charity: water.
We recently received word that the $36,555 that you helped us raise in the first quarter of 2012 has been allocated to fund our first five projects with charity: water in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. We'll keep you posted as we learn more.
Since the first quarter, we've given $17,250 more. In total, you've helped us raise over $50,000 so far—enough to help about 2,690 people. And we're still going strong.
When we started this project, we started filling up a wall of our lab with little painted green men--one for each person who will gain access to clean water. We put together this little time-lapse video of the first few months… check it out:
