Water 4 Life...


What will 2010 look like for you? As for me, I am not sure, but what I do know is that for one billion people in the world it will be yet another year without clean water. Can you imagine? That is 1 in 8 of us. And every day in this New Year, women and children will walk for hours to collect water, water that is often contaminated by animal and human waste. It is very likely that in 2010, water-borne disease will again kill 4,500 children alone every single day. It’s tragic. And it is all because of a shortage of clean water. The water crisis is big, but there are simple solutions, solutions that we can be a part of.

This year, we can help bring clean water to a community in a developing country. Wouldn’t it be awesome if in 2010 you and I can help finance the construction of a well for 250 people in need of water? Enabling children to go to school rather than spend their time looking for water? Ensuring a healthier community without water-borne disease? Allowing women to spend time on income generating businesses rather than searching for water? Our contribution to a well in 2010 can make a lifetime difference in the lives of these people. Imagine life without water in your house, or even in your neighborhood! Wouldn’t you be thrilled if you had a well nearby? Let’s give a community a reason to celebrate in 2010.

Partner with me in raising $5000 for a well by contributing to Water 4 Life. Any amount is welcome: $1, $5, $10, $20 or more. Every bit helps. $5 will give one person water for 5 years. $20 gives one person water for 20 years. $5000 will give an entire community a well. My ‘Water 4 Christmas’ Campaign raised almost $3000, but we still have $2000 to go. Join me. And spread the word. Invite friends and family to join in and make an impact on the lives of those less fortunate than us.

Water 4 Life. Give life by giving water. To contribute to my campaign please go to: http://mycharitywater.org/sandralako and make your donation on my campaign page.
