How Charity Water Hacks the Nonprofit Model

A video by THNKR. Scott Harrison, founder of Charity Water explains how they do things differently and are able to help millions of people to get clean drinking water each year.

At GlobalOwls, we love to use the nonprofit Charity Water as an example of how to do good marketing and branding. Scott Harrison and his team have reached a lot and they tell their story well so other nonprofits can learn, adapt and succeed as well.
