Recently I experienced an event that made me acutely aware of how delicate life is and how lucky I am to be alive. With that awareness came a great sense of gratitude for the fact that I have family, a roof over my head, clothes on my back, a little money saved up and love in my life. I also started noticing the many things that are expected for not just a comfortable life but those of absolute necessity. When you think of the three top ways one can die from the elements, first you die from thirst, then exposure and finally lack of food. Many other things that can bring death but dehydration is painful, nagging and totally unnecessary. Lets help where there is water, there is hope.
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.
