On November 1, non-profit Water1st International hosted their annual Give Water Give Life gala at the Fremont Studios in Seattle.
Coluccio Law attorney Kevin Coluccio, and his wife Margie Duckstad, were honored as Water1st Ambassadors of the Year for 2019.
The work of making sure every person has clean water is as important as it gets.
Water1st has been leading the way on this front for nearly 20 years.
The Coluccio family – and Coluccio Law – are long-time supporters of Water1st International, a non-profit supporting sustainable water and toilet projects for the world’s poorest communities, with the goals of improving health, creating opportunity, and breaking the cycle of extreme poverty.
Water1st encourages everyone to be part of the world water crisis solution. Our family is grateful and honored to be part of this community.
Water1st has completed more than 3100 clean water projects worldwide, serving more than 225,000 people. At an average cost of $85 a person, a Water1st Project provides:
- Clean water piped directly to homes & schools
- Showers for personal hygiene
- High-quality toilets
- Community organizing & management training
- Ongoing project monitoring
Coluccio Law has sponsored a number of events for Water1st, including Give Water Give Life, Carry 5 Walk for Water, and Bike for Water.
Last year, the law firm dedicated a water site in Bangladesh in the name of a 15-year-old boy who had been killed in a semi-truck crash. Kevin & Margie’s teenage son was a volunteer on-site at the dedication.
