In 2008 E.P.I.C. teamed up with the new Quiksilver Women's line, who donated 3% of all of their eco-friendly clothing sales in 2009 to the drilling of E.P.I.C.'s clean water wells.
With the extraordinary help of Quiksilver, along with many of your generous donations, E.P.I.C. was able to drill their 2nd and 3rd wells in the villages of Mangalali and Kibebe. Jennifer Barrios (one of the women from the Quiksilver team), joined Tennille and Alexi on their trip to Tanzania in August, 2009, and was able to see for herself the necessity of the work being done.
In 2010, the 3% royalty rate will come from all of the QSW stylish Short Sleeve Ts, and with their continuous support, along with all of your kind donations, E.P.I.C. will be drilling 3 more clean water wells in 2010. Please visit our Projects section to learn more!
Quiksilver Women is a huge supporter of E.P.I.C. and all that they do, and in 2010, there will be many more exciting projects that will be worked on together, in order to further build the partnership in hopes of raising more money and awareness for this important cause.
