everyone DESERVES clean water.

Most of us have never really been thirsty.
We’ve never had to leave our houses and walk 5 miles to fetch water.
We simply turn on the tap, and water comes out. Clean.
Yet more than 1.1 billion people on the planet don’t have clean water.
It’s hard to imagine what a billion people looks like really, but
ONE IN SIX might be easier.
One in six people in our world don’t have access to the most basic of human needs.
Something we can’t imagine going 12 hours without.


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

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.

as we get ready to rush through department stores and browse through catalogs searching
for the perfect presents....lets pause for a moment.
let's PAUSE.
today...November 13...lets buy clean water.
clean life saving water.
$10 will provide one person in africa clean water for 10 years.
your money can change and possibly save someone's life.
a real life.


let's do this together.
one day.
let water be the first gift you buy this christmas.

for something WE take for granted each and every day.
