water

We take luxuries as basic as water for granted every day.
But did you know that 4500 mothers bury their children due to contaminated water... every day.

On this day, I'm challenging you.
We are mentally preparing to spend hundreds of dollars,
overindulging,
this holiday season...



And yet one in six people on the planet does not have access to clean water. Kind of puts things into perspective.

Just for today...
Trade consumerism for compassion.
And get your kids involved!

Just $10 will provide one person in Africa clean water for 10 years!

Why not make life the first gift you give this season.
Can you really think of anything more important?

Please donate here, and spread the word.

{All money goes directly towards quickly & efficiently building
sustainable clean water projects throughout the world.}

I donated.
Come back and tell me if you did, too.

Help me campaign for water today.

I donated...I love that 100% of the donations go directly to the countries they are working in and not towards overhead costs. Their work is amazing really.

I donated and put it as my facebook status. really does put things in perspective...how $10 can change a life and it's what we would spend on 2 Starbucks drinks....

A GREAT challenge to kick off the season. If we're not inspiring and challenging ourselves and others...what are we really doing anyway?!? For the past few Christmases we have forgone gift giving with adult members of the immmediate family and instead bought things like...mosquito nets, feminine hygiene care packages and goats or chickens for people in other parts of the world who are stuggling so greatly. It's a simple thing..but it makes A WORLD of difference in a world that NEEDS a difference!
