World Water Day 2015: 12 Facts And Things To Know

Many people take it for granted, but water is essential for life. World Water Day is celebrated Sunday, March 22 to simply celebrate water. The United Nations started the campaign 22 years ago to show how water makes a difference to areas of the world where there are water-related problems.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon issued a statement for WWD 2015: "To address the many challenges related to water, we must work in a spirit of urgent cooperation, open to new ideas and innovation, and prepared to share the solutions that we all need for a sustainable future."

To celebrate water, and its official day, some facts have been provided below, courtesy of Water.org:

1.394 million people in Latin America and the Caribbean are without water access

2. 358 million people in Africa are without water access

3. 195 million people in Southeast, East Asia and Oceania are without water access

4. 9 million people are without water access in developed countries

5. More than 840,000 people die from a water-related disease each year. That could be from diarrhea caused by derisory drinking water, hygiene and sanitation. It translates to 2,300 deaths per day.

6. About 750 million people do not have access to clean water, which is approximately 1 in every 9 people

7. 82 percent of people who don’t have access to “improved” water live in rural areas

8. There are more people who have a mobile phone than access to a toilet.

9. Women and children spend 140 million hours collecting fresh water every day

10. 1 child dies from a water-related illness each day

11. There is a $4 economic return for each dollar that is spent on water and sanitation

12. The amount of safe water could drop by 40 percent in 15 years if people do not change the way they use water

Invoice Cloud Service Update

Service Update - Verizon email addresses migrated to AOL service

Dear Valued Customer:

Invoice Cloud would like to make you aware of an issue affecting customers that use a Verizon email address that begins with a number or includes a dash.

Now that Verizon has migrated their email service to AOL, these types of emails are no longer passing validation with our email service. This means that customers with these attributes in their email address will not be able to use that email to register their accounts or during the payment process.

We have made several attempts to contact AOL, however because we are not a direct customer of theirs, they are unable to assist us. At this time, we can only suggest to customers that a different email address be used. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you have questions regarding this, please call us at 901-737-8686 or email us at helpdesk@invoicecloud.com.

Thank you,
Invoice Cloud
