Water for Christmas.

What does $10 mean to you?

How easily do we take out a 10 dollar bill and spend it on something useless?

To me, $10 is a new paperback. To Dan $10 is a bucket of balls at the driving range.

How hard would it be for each of us to live without these things?

Every single day 4500 people in Africa die from lack of clean water.

Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of all sickness and disease and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.

$10 to someone in Africa means clean water for TEN YEARS.

Doesn’t that put my book and Dan’s bucket of balls into perspective?

Instead of focusing on buying gifts for loved ones who already have so much, this Christmas let’s put our consumer spending power towards providing clean life saving water for families in Africa who NEED it!

charity: water is a non profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. They give 100% of the money raised to direct project costs, funding sustainable clean water solutions in areas of greatest need. Just $10 can give one person in a developing nation clean water for 10 years.
