I usually post my thoughts, but decided that today my blog is dedicated to those in Africa that need clean drinking water. I present to you Blood:Water Mission (following is an excerpt from their site). Please consider a donation, and remember the next time you are at the cash register buying a soda, that could be clean water fior one person for a year.
$1 = ONE YEAR OF WATER FOR AN AFRICAN
YOUR ONE DOLLAR WILL SAVE A LIFE
1000 Wells Project
- Did you know that millions of Africans lack access to clean water?
- Did you know that people living with HIV/AIDS are dependent on clean water to survive?
- Did you know that $1 provides one year of clean water for an African?
Did you know that YOU can help save lives?
The 1000 Wells Project is building 1000 wells and clean water projects in 1000 African communities. Businesses, churches, schools, artists and individuals are collecting funds so they can sponsor the construction of wells in Africa. In the process, they are learning about how HIV/AIDS affects African communities, and what it means to partner humbly with communities to pursue transformation.
