"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not. " Dr. SeussOur class has been reflecting on this quote and ways we can make a difference in this world. Someone in our class had the idea that we could help people who don't have clean water, something we all take for granted. Mrs. Rice found The Water Project online and we all decided it would be a great thing for us to do. In this class we believe we CAN make a difference. We are collecting change for a week at our school entrance and also have set up this site if you would like to give. Thanks for caring! Mrs. Rice's 3rd Grade Class Sam Houston Elementary
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.
