Kat Graham: Sings praises of Water Project

Youth Impact Report 2012: Power of Youth Honorees

WHO: Best known as Bonnie Bennett on the CW’s “The Vampire Diaries,” Kat Graham is also a singer and dancer. She has appeared alongside Zac Efron and Matthew Perry in “17 Again” and “The Roommate” with Leighton Meester.

WHAT: The Water Project is a nonprofit organization bringing relief to communities around the world that suffer needlessly from a lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation. The org is working in five countries to help hundreds of people find access to safe water and sanitation every week by funding water wells and other safe water projects.

WHY: “Years ago on MySpace, I saw something about this little boy who had raised money in his neighborhood for children who did not have access to clean water. Then I found out that nearly a billion people don’t have access to clean drinking water. After that, I made it my mission to get multiple wells built every year.

WHAT’S NEXT: Individuals, small groups, schools and families all around the world are invited to join the Water Project by sponsoring a well, holding individual fundraisers or taking the Water Challenge and raising money to build wells at schools and community centers in Africa.
