Text is all it takes.

In order to participate in this campaign, you must Text HYDRATE” to 97779!  Here is why…

Starting February 1st, we’re going to text you a daily form to fill out, asking about your health and energy levels, and asking if you actually drank 64 ounces of water that day. The form will take less than 60 seconds to complete, but it will help us measure how drinking water affects your wellness from day to day.

TEXT HYDRATE TO 97779 now!



We’ve never had a Thirst Project x Key Club piece of merchandise that you can rep… until today. Buy a water bottle HERE to use during the campaign. $8 from each bottle sold will go to help fund a water project for a community in eSwatini! The bottle will be sent right to you!


We chose 64 ounces daily because this is a commonly accepted number by many medical professionals as the quota we need to hit for daily drinking.

  2. Keep track of the number of days you actually drank 64 ounces of water (we will also be asking you in our daily form we send out via text message).
  3. Create your fundraising page HERE. Once the campaign is over, count the number of days you’ve completed the Hydrate for 28 challenge. Look at your pledge sheet and send your fundraising page to your donors so they can support you!
  4. If you have ten people donate $1 per day, and you drink 64 ounces of water for everyday in February, you will have raised $280! Make sure to send your fundraising page out to your donors after the campaign is over so they can donate to you!

2020 was rough. So we built a campaign where Key Clubbers could focus on their health and wellness, while also helping us END the water crisis.

We know that drinking water contributes to one’s overall health, and we wanted Key Clubbers to commit to putting their health first!

ANY Key Clubber that completes this campaign and drinks 64 ounces of water for ALL 28 days in February will be put into a drawing to win a free Zoom session with our campaign champion, Dexter Darden!
