Tennis Fans Can Meet Rafael Nadal In Paris Through One Drop Foundation and Prizeo

Rafael_Nadal_2011_Roland_Garros_2-NomeroInternational foundation One Drop – created by Guy Laliberté in 2007 – announced today that it has partnered with Prizeo, the online giving platform that democratizes giving for all income levels, to provide one lucky winner with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: meet the current number-one ranked singles player, tennis legend Rafael Nadal, in Paris at his first match of the next Grand Slam tournament in May 2018.

With just a $10 donation on prizeo.com/nadal, tennis fans will be entered to win an unsurpassed tennis experience, all for two amazing causes – The One Drop Foundation, which helps improve access to safe water across the world, and The Rafa Nadal Foundation, which aids disadvantaged children and youth in their personal and social development through sports. Running now through May 7, 2018, the winner and guest will receive:

  • Two tickets to attend Rafael’s first match at the most prestigious tennis tournament in Paris
  • Meet and greet with Rafael Nadal, and take photos with him during the tournament
  • Round-trip airfare and hotel in Paris

“When One Drop approached me to be part of their ‘10 Waves’ initiative, I right away accepted to collaborate. One Drop’s safe water access projects around the world and their sustainable approach are truly inspiring. They have put together a great recipe for success and for ensuring the long-term impact of their projects, which will soon reach 1 million beneficiaries around the world,” said Rafael Nadal. “And while supporting their cause, this collaboration is also allowing me to raise funds and awareness for the Rafa Nadal Foundation, which I founded in 2008, to help disadvantaged children and youth in their personal development and social integration through sports. So this was a great opportunity to join forces and help make the world a better place.”

One Drop Logo10 Waves for One Drop is a fundraising initiative that offers unique celebrity experiences through Charity Network’s online auctions and sweepstakes. This particular sweepstake benefits The One Drop Organization, one of the leading forces in providing sustainable access to safe water, adequate sanitation and proper hygiene. In addition, money raised will also benefit The Rafael Foundation via sport and educational programs for at-risk youths.

“We know tennis fans are a passionate and dedicated group, and with this incredible opportunity, we hope to raise a substantial amount for One Drop and Rafa Nadal Foundation,” said Lauren Werner, General Manager, Prizeo. “Our goal is to always positively impact those in need, while also providing a stellar, unique experience, and we feel like we’ve done that with this campaign.”
