Tom's of Maine extends its ongoing commitment to doing good and supporting good in communities through a partnership with charity: water, the U.S.-based non-profit organization dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. Through December 31, 2009, Tom's of Maine will match each $5 donation* made by texting WELL to 20222, up to $10,000, to fund important water projects in areas most in need.
