NAUTICA + charity: water = CHANGE

NAUTICA + charity: water = CHANGE

Nautica has always been passionate about the water. Today we are celebrating World Water Day by announcing a new partnership with charity: water.  charity: water is a non-profit organization that brings clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries. Together we are working to raise money and build awareness about the world water crisis.

Our campaign, Give Change to Make Change launches today in all Nautica stores and on  The concept is simple. We are asking customers to give a little of their change – pennies, dimes, or quarters – to help bring clean water to people in need by rounding up their purchase to the next dollar at Nautica outlet stores and on  100% of donations made to charity: water go directly to clean water project costs. This is an opportunity for each and every one of us to get involved and make a difference in the lives of so many.
