Water World - The AdVenture Project
Today's World Water Day. Becky Straw, Co-Founder of The AdVenture Project (and fellow Acalanes High School alum), just told me their goal is to inspire 100 bloggers to turn their words to action, and inspire ten readers to donate $20 - enough to turn water back on for three people in India. If they raise $10,000 today, a foundation will match the amount! As of 3:30 pm, they are just about halfway to their goal.
One third of all handpumps installed in the last twenty years in developing countries are now broken. And 4,000 children die every day because of lack of clean drinking water.
Instead of drilling more wells, The AdVenture Project will use our charitable gifts for something revolutionary – to train and employ handpump mechanics. The mechanics earn an income, bringing themselves out of poverty, and they save lives – turning water back on for thousands of people each year.
So don't let the water run dry, DONATE NOW! Thanks!
