The UNICEF Tap Project, a grassroots initiative to provide clean water to children around the world, is seeking restaurants nationwide to participate in its fourth annual UNICEF Tap Project March 21 to 27, 2010, during World Water Week to raise funds for distributing clean water to countries in need.

Participating restaurants will ask their patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they typically drink for free. All money raised will be allocated to bringing clean and accessible water to the countries and areas identified as among the most in need--among them are Haiti, Central African Republic, Togo, Guatemala and Vietnam. Restaurants interested in taking part in this year’s Tap Project can register online here.

Since its inception in 2007 in New York City, the UNICEF Tap Project has raised $1.5 million and grown into a nationwide effort. For more information, visit
