So many people take water for granted. We don't have to worry about when we will get our next sip of water, we simply walk over to our fridge and fill a cup up. But what about those who don't have access to water? Some kids have to walk miles all day to get clean water, which makes it so they cant get an education and just be a kid. I want to change that.
I am running in the Vernonia Oregon Marathon on April 10th 2011 and wanted to make it more personal by raising money for The Water Project. I have always had a desire to help people and figured this would be a perfect way to play a little part.
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.
