If a restaurant charges you a dollar for regular old tap water this week, don't pitch a fit: it's for charity. UNICEF's Tap Project is an effort to raise awareness (and, obviously, money) about the lack of clean drinking water in the world; a spokesperson from the project said $1 is enough to provide one kid with clean water for 40 days.
Restaurants like The Spotted Pig in New York and Blackbird in Chicago are participating; you can find restaurants near you on their website.
