{ the gift of clean water }


I found out about this program via this blog and think it is an amazing idea and wanted to share with you what I WILL be buying today. Water. Clean Water.

Today is the day where bloggers everywhere are joining together in a campaign to
buy water for christmas.

1.1 billion
people on our planet lack access to safe, clean drinking water. That's one in six of us.
4500 mothers bury their children EVERY DAY due to contaminated water.
The lack of access to clean water is the leading cause of death in underdeveloped nations.
and it doesn't have to be.


We can all spare $10 for this important cause....can't WE? What if we give the gift of clean water for Christmas gifts to each other this year? As we start the madness of the holiday season here, let us think about people there. Do we need more THINGS or do they need clean water?

Today...November 13...lets buy clean water. Clean life saving water.

$10 will
provide one person in Africa clean water for 10 years.
100% of proceeds go directly to
clean water solutions in West Africa.

And in case that hasn't inspired you enough check out this mother of 6's journey to Africa in support of this program here.
