Water is essential for life.
In a newborn infant, water can comprises up to 79 percent of the body weight. An adult averages about 60 percent of water for body weight which progressively decreases with age and obesity.
It is said that a human can survive for a month or more without eating food, but only a few days to a week without drinking water factoring in age, climate, medical conditions, level of activity, etc.

Over 2 million people in developing countries, most of them children, die every year from diseases associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation, and poor hygiene.
Over a billion people in the world don't have access to to safe drinking water.
Half of the world's hospital beds are filled with people suffering from water-related illnesses.
I've come to the conclusion that water is king. It is not oil, land, gold, silver, silicon, or cash. Water is the genesis to create, generate, and invigorate the Earth.
Help me help the helpless
I recall a trip I made to Ensenada over 20 years ago to band with some great peeps to work under the sun in building a well for small community in the deep trenches of the underprivileged belly of Mexico. I also recently raised some funds by running around a park in West LA for building wells in Africa.
There is nothing more rewarding than to see a young child unmask the layers of dirt covering their skin by rinsing in their newfound 'river of life'. It is a wellspring of joyous tears for me to have a mother wake up another day to see her child live from gift drops from clouds. It's a marvel to witness a community prosper and grow to birth the next generation of inventors, innovators, entrepreneurs, pioneers, philanthropists, and servants of all.
If you're in the belief that you have enough to share, I would love your helpin giving the gift of water.
I will run one mile for every benjamin donated.

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.
The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world who suffer needlessly without.
Working with local partners in countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Uganda, we build long lasting water projects that are organized, owned and managed by the communities receiving them.
Together, with our partners we identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. Then we share the whole story with you to inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
