Totter for Water is an annual fundraiser run by Howard Hall, a women’s dorm at Notre Dame. The aim of this event is to raise money for clean water initiatives. This year, Howard Hall and the Holy Cross Mission Center are excited to partner to raise money for the Clean Water and Bathroom Project at a Holy Cross school in Plaisance, Haiti.

Totter for Water involves members of Howard Hall riding a large teeter totter outside for 24 hours (in shifts!). This year’s event will be September 27-28th. We encourage everyone who comes to the event to ride the totter and donate to the cause.

The Clean Water and Bathroom Project, a large and essential project, will cost a little less than $70,000 to complete. The project will provide clean water access and sanitation – toilets, sinks andshowers. This clean water and bathroom project will provide sanitation to many students in the school who don’t have access to it otherwise, even in their own homes. One of the biggest problems they face is the removal of waste. Cases of cholera have broken out, which they believe to be caused by lack of sanitation at the school. Thus, this is a much needed project at this school in Haiti.

Last year, the women of Howard Hall raised a total of $5,200, and are looking to increase that amount again and surpass last year’s total. You can support Totter for Water by using the form below to donate. Howard Hall will also be selling succulents and giving away food at the event to encourage the Notre Dame community to participate. The women of Howard Hall are committed to this cause and hope to make this the most successful Totter for Water yet. We appreciate any support you can provide via the form below.
