Water is something we in the US tend to take for granted. After all, we wash our dishes and fill our toilets with fresh, clean, drinkable water. In many developing countries, however, clean water is much harder to come by, and is therefore a far more valuable commodity. There are a number of charities devoted to helping people in these countries gain better and more reliable access to drinkable water. Once such charity is the simply-named charity: water.
Today - and today only - a special sale aims to raise money for charity: water by donating the proceeds from the sale of several apps to the non-profit organization. Apps for Water is a special fundraiser sponsored by Gaucho Software, a developer of Mac and iOS apps. Today only all proceeds from sales of the apps go to charity: water. The sale includes nearly 220 apps from dozens of developers. The apps come in all shapes and sizes and span Apple’s platforms - there are Mac apps and iPhone apps and iPad apps. They range in price from $0.99 to $63.99.
