I take it for granted. Each morning before I walk, I turn on the kitchen tap and drink two tall glasses of water. I assume the water will flow. I assume it will be clean. We in the United States can make these assumptions. Around the world, people are not so lucky.
Access to clean water is a growing concern and my blog today is joining a worldwide blog effort – Blog Action Day– dedicated to raising awareness of the need to make good water available to everyone.
I urge you to take a few minutes today to check out charity:water Charity:water is a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe water to developing nations. 100% of public donations directly fund water projects. Amazingly, they report that just $20 can give one person clean water for 20 years.
If you want to help, here’s an easy way. Charity:water is the designated recipient of all proceeds from sales of Age of Conversation 3. Those of us who were contributing writers of AOC3 are urging everyone to buy a copy – or several! – today to raise awareness and money to promote the cause of clean water for everyone.
An average water project costs $5,000 and can serve 250 people with clean, safe water – so purchasing a copy of Age of Conversation 3 really can make a difference to someone’s life.
This blog is blatant promotion on several levels: for Blog Action Day, for Age of Conversation 3, and for clean water. Most of all for clean water. Thanks for reading. Thanks even more for taking action for clean water.
