A new WaterAid campaign, launching today, is asking women everywhere to post a childhood snap with the hashtag #MeAsAGirl, to raise awareness of the thousands of girls around the world who are suffering because they lack access to clean water.

The problems they endure aren’t limited to the obvious – lack of safe drinking water, personal hygiene and clean toilet facilities – but also have a direct link to education, as children spend their days trying to collect and carry clean water for their families, rather than going to school. The consequences of not having these basic services affect women and girls the most, as going to the toilet in the open leaves them vulnerable to violence and sexual assault.

“I’m supporting WaterAid’s To be a girl campaign as I believe all girls should be able to go to school and get an education,” Sarah Brown said today. “Too many girls around the world drop out of school because of the lack of somewhere private to go the toilet, or spend hours collecting water every day or have school sick days from drinking dirty water. No girl deserves to miss the chance to fulfil her potential because of lack of access to clean, safe water.”

Aiming to highlight the carefree childhoods that most people growing up in the UK have, WaterAid is aiming to also raise £1million to help bring safe, clean water and sanitation to over 130,000 girls around the world. Take a look through our gallery of celebrities above including Sarah Brown and Laura Whitmore (not to mention a few Marie Claire staffers) and start posting your own.

We will be re-tweeting everyone who shares their #MeAsAGirl pictures with us and WaterAid on Twitter and texts GIRLS to 70300 to donate £3. We will also update the gallery above with the best snaps.

Rachel Attending Butterfly Ball

Check out the latest blog from RachelStevensOfficial.com

It’s for a great cause, the annual Butterfly Ball for Caudwell Children, a charity that helps lots of young disabled children and their families by providing support, equipment, therapies and treatment to people who otherwise may not be able to afford the help they really need.

I became a patron of the charity when I first performed at the ball quite a few years ago and I was lucky enough to meet some of the incredible and brave children and families who they support. Last time I attended the ball I was very humbled, it raised huge amounts of money and I got the chance to meet more people that the charity helps, as well as those working hard to make this all happen on a daily basis.

So, it’s an absolute pleasure to be invited back again this year and I’m looking forward to being part of the event. Fingers crossed that they raise a huge amount on the night!

OFFICIAL: Rachel Gets Fruity (AGAIN!!)

In support of Wateraid Rachel has vowed to carry a melon everyday for the next six days and challenges us to do the same. Here’s Rachels bit in her latest blog entry over at the official website!!

This week, WaterAid’s partner, ethical bottled water company, Belu, is challenging the British public to following in the footsteps of Dirty Dancing’s ‘Baby’ (what’s not to like about that!?) and to carry a watermelon – for six days! – to celebrate World Water Week, September 1-6 2013.

They’re asking us all to adopt a watermelon for the week and ask your friends, family and work colleagues to sponsor you for taking part! They can help you welcome your melons into your lives and you can take it on your daily commute, to the shops or even out for dinner – the choices are endless;) – just make sure you tweet them to me and to @WaterAidUK so we can see what you’re up to!

There’s a reason for this and that is to raise awareness of issues faced by the millions of people all over the world who still live without access to safe, clean water and have to walk miles every day, putting themselves and their families at risk, just so that they have this basic need. I witnessed people in Ethiopia first who were doing this every day and was genuinely moved by what I saw and committed myself to helping them. One lady in particular, my age, with 8 children – Ajame – really touched me and asked me to help her … so here I am. I may be carrying more watermelons as the week go by and hope that you will do the same.

Earlier this morning Rachel posted her melon hard at work.

Look out for our melon on our Twitter beginning tomorrow @RStevensCom. Tweet us yours as well!!
