This morning I woke up and walked into my kitchen, turned on the faucet and drank a cup of water. Correction. I drank half a cup of water and poured the rest down the drain, because I have an endless supply of clean drinking water at my disposal.
With the ALS ice water bucket challenge I saw a lot of people talking about the clean water crisis-that over 1.5 million deaths occur because of no access to clean drinking water. 1 in 5 deaths in children under 5 occurs from the same problem. I can't personally travel to other countries to dig wells but I can at least make an effort in my corner of the world to raise the money to help the people who can.
Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?
Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!
Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.
|Love that you're doing this!
|Blessings on your fundraiser!
|last time we gave to the heifer project...this'll help too
|God bless your heart.
|I love you
