Hey y'all, this is Tony, and as americans we are blessed with wealth that is far greater than our actual needs. Actually, we have WAY more than we need. It is humorous to see how some people spend their excess money on ridiculous luxuries, bigger TVs or just more toys...
I am just as guilty... I often fall into the trap of the 'American Dream' and the advertisements designed to get me focused on myself. Every where we look we are flooded with media telling us we need more, we aren't good enough, or life isn't easy enough... so buy our product.
Enough is enough. This fundraiser is designed to provide clean water to people who need it. When you decide to donate, YOU are making a choice to stand up for love. YOU are deciding to stop believing all of the commercials. YOU are deciding to excercise your faith. This isnt a gimmick, you aren't buying your salvation, this organization is legit, and the only benefit you will recieve from this donation is satisfaction knowing you have helped another human who truly needs it. These people need this.
As americans, we are always being asked for help. The guy on the street corner who needs some change. The kids and all of their fundraisers. That friend who always seems to be down on his luck. Everyone needs something but the definition of 'need' is different for everybody. Many times, what someone asks for isnt what they really need. One thing is for certain, we all need water.
2 Corinthians 8:12-15
LET'S DO THIS!!!!
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.
