World Water Day

I almost forgot! Today is World Water Day!

As some of you may or may not know, I am on the Board of Directors of the African Well Fund. We are a grassroots non-profit that raise funds for clean water projects in Sub-Saharan Africa. Please check out our website to learn more about how ease it is to make a difference in the life of a child in Africa.

This week, when you take a drink of water, think about how many childern, men and women do not have the luxury of going to a faucet and getting a simple glass of water. Think about how instead of going to school, a little girl has to walk 8 miles round trip to the nearest water source to get water for her family. When she gets there the water is in a dirty hole in the ground where animals drink as well. As the U2 song goes " Where you live should not decide, whether you live our whether you die." So visit the African Well Fund today and see how you can make a difference!

Yay, I'm glad you did a post on "World Water Day." I don't think a lot of people are familiar with this organization.

Oh, and I LOVE Bono!!! ;)
