ASUS announced The ASUS Wave Makers Holiday Giving Program, which will help provide more than 20,000 people access to safe water. The ASUS Wave Makers Holiday Giving Program was created as part of ASUS’ commitment to give back, while enabling ZenBook customers to participate in a program allowing them to make a difference, and enact change; to “make waves.” For every ZenBook sold, from November 1st through February 28th, 2018, ASUS will donate $6.25 to Water.org.
“Access to safe water has the power to transform lives—providing families with hope, health, and the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty,” said Melanie Mendrys, Water.org’s Director of Brand and Marketing. “We are grateful to supporters like ASUS that enable us to reach more people in need with safe water and sanitation.”
844 million people, which equates to 1 out of every 9 people in the world, lack access to safe water. Every 90 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease, and water, sanitation and hygiene disease kills 1 million people each year. Because of these mounting issues, ASUS decided to launch a charitable initiative in support of Water.org -- to give back and to allow its ZenBook customers to give back, through the ASUS Wave Makers Holiday Giving Program.
Inspired by the diverse needs of consumers in all areas and phases of life, ASUS' foremost mission is to deliver truly innovative solutions that in turn inspire consumers to reach for greater heights of productivity and fun. The ASUS ZenBook product line embodies all of these qualities, and allows our customers to do something different and to effect change. And to further that message, ASUS is allowing customers to enact change on a global level, by donating to Water.org, with every purchase of a ZenBook.
“As part of our company culture, everyone at ASUS strives for technological and aesthetic perfection in everything they do. And this is reflected in our ZenBook line,” said Steve Chang, President of ASUS North America. “We also believe in the importance of making and supporting positive changes in the world; something that is built into our company philosophy. The ASUS Wave Makers Holiday Giving Program is an excellent example of what we refer to as our ‘ASUS DNA’ being executed and extended to our customers.”
ASUS has begun this season of giving with a donation to Water.org that will help reach 2,000 people in the developing world with the gift of safe water. Access to safe water can transform lives—even entire communities. For a limited time, every purchase of any one ASUS ZenBook helps Water.org provide 10 years of access to safe water to someone in need. ASUS will donate USD 6.25 to Water.org for every ZenBook sold in the United States and Canada between November 1, 2017, and February 28, 2018, up to a maximum of 36,160 units.
