I have been extremely slack over the school holidays and didn't keep up with my regular 8 glasses of water intake per day. This water challenge has come at just the right time. Yes, another month and a new challenge here on DaniStevens.com. This challenge is aimed at improving our wellbeing, keeping each other accountable and motivated to look after our health.

All I can say is thank you to this water bottle that has hit the shelves in local supermarkets in Australia. Knowing each time I buy a Thank You bottle of water (or any food & skin care range for that matter), my money goes towards life-changing projects. Plus I get to track my impact and see the projects going on around the world. BE THE CHANGE and choose Thank You this month and make a difference too! Congrats to my friends over at Thank You for being game changers and such an awesome social enterprise. I am so proud to be an ambassador for this wonderful cause.
