We got an email from someone named Lisa, eager to donate to No One Without. We explained to her that as we are not a non-profit, we do not take donations and that the giving is built into the purchase. And that her purchase would provide one person with clean water for 25 years.
Rather than getting discouraged that the donation was a no go, she took to the website to check everything out. Man did she have a party on there! Lisa purchased enough items to single handedly provide one whole filter to the people of Cameroon! 20 individual people in Cameroon will receive clean water thanks to Lisa! We wanted you to know who she is and what she loves, so we asked her some questions.
1. I like to donate to and support social business because?
I have been very blessed and like to help whenever I can. I also think it is important to support local businesses so if there is an opportunity to do both I am definitely onboard!
2. My favorite charity/social business is?
Typically anything that has to do with children in need.
3. I love No One Without because?
It gives me the opportunity to contribute to two great causes at one time as I will be donating some of the clothes to the Goodwill. The others I will be giving to friends and family to help spread the word.
4. My favorite recipe is?
Chocolate chip cookies
5. The best song to dance to is?
Black Eye Peas “Tonight’s Gonna be a Good Night”
6. If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life it would be?
7. My favorite No One Without product is?

“My name is Beatrice, I am 20 years old and a mother of one, am married. I live with my husband, his family and relatives and we are 11 of us in one house. We live in Ntenmbang. For so many years today that I’ve been growing up, we’ve been suffering from water born diseases that has claimed so many lives. With the bio sand filter now, am very sure that even as we will be using the new piping system that came together with the sand filters, we will have more cleaner water than the other families that did not have the filters. We are so grateful to the donors, to Thirst Relief”
Because of the generosity of LISA and ALL of our devoted friends and family of No One Without, Beatrice can rest easier. The people of her village have been trained in the building and upkeep of the bio sand filters. They have also been trained in necessary hygiene protocols.
They will continue to have life saving clean water!
