ClearCorrect LLC, Houston, a manufacturer of clear aligners, has reached a milestone in its charitable project, Phase Out. Since the launch of its first initiative with charity: water (phase out unsafe drinking water) on January 1, 2012, ClearCorrect has raised more than $60,000, which will help about 3,000 people gain access to clean and safe drinking water. 

Of the $60,000 raised so far, $36,555 has been allocated to funding the first five projects with charity: water in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The funding will help create spring protections, rainwater catchments and large-scale gravity-fed water systems that will have dozens of distribution points to serve a large population. These projects are planned for a mix of villages, schools, and clinics, with a strong focus on hygiene, sanitation training, and community buy-in to ensure sustainability and prevention of water-borne diseases.

When asked how long the company intends to run the Phase Out project, Jarrett Pumphrey, ClearCorrect’s CEO, responded, "For as long as we can make a difference."
