Every week, 42,000 people die for reasons clean water could help cure.
90% of those people are children.
During the month of June, my friend Matt at Becoming Last is aiming to raise a million dollars to support charity: water in their mission to bring clean water to people in developing nations. I’m helping him, and I hope you will too.
Feeling the pressure of a tight budget? So am I. But think about this:
- On average, every $1 given to improve the clean water problem gets back $12 in economic returns.
- Just $20 can give clean, safe drinking water to one person.
- Americans spent$15 billion on bottled water in 2007. Tap water is almost free.
Some of you are British, and that’s okay – you can give too. charity: water will accept your credit or debit card.
I’ll leave the badge to the right up until the end of June, and you can click on it whenever you’re ready to give to Matt’s campaign and bring clean water to someone who needs it.
There are just thirteen days left. Let’s do this thing.
