water for christmas

allow me to direct you here.

and if you are like me and too lazy to check out random links you may know nothing about, please do it anyway.

its about what you can do to make a difference in someones world.

10 dollars is all it takes.

that's like giving up 2 starbucks drinks. all to provide one person in africa clean drinking water for 10 years. yeah, that's right. just let that thought haunt you while sipping your next perfectly frothed, completely overpriced mocha beverage.

this weighs pretty heavy on my heart. because they:

could be them:

and i simply cannot bear the thought of not being able to provide my children with something as "simple" as clean drinking water.

its all happening this friday. november 13th. (but you can start today) just $10. water for christmas.

spread the word and go make a difference.

Checked out the links and the numbers were astounding. We take it so much for granted. I linked to the charity on my post today.

Thanks for sharing this.
