gift of water...

Firstgift

yes....i am talking about water again.
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.

Ethio03 Ethio45

let's do this together.
one day.
$10
let water be the first gift you buy this christmas.

a village could be changed because you read a blog that encouraged you to give...and you did.
that's awesome!

$10
that is 2 starbucks coffees
it's on CD on itunes
it's a pizza
one movie ticket
less than one container of detergent!
$10 can change someone's life.

I wish I had seen this a few days ago! Most of our Christmas "gifts" go to Advent Conspiracy, Samaritans Purse, and our sponsor child in Rwanda. But I wish I could have shared about this a few days ago :(
