world water day

It all means more when you see it firsthand. And in Liberia, I saw people drinking dirty water. I did see lots of wells, which is a blessing, but certainly not everyone has access to clean water.

And today is World Water Day. Since The Adventure Project’s current campaign is to raise money for well repairs, we’re blogging today with a simple request.


From The Adventure Project:

ProblemOne 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. We feel that’s unacceptable. So we’re thinking differently.

SolutionInstead of drilling more wells, we’re using 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.

Along with 100-some other bloggers, I’m blogging to ask you to consider donating $20 to our Keep It Clean Campaign today.

100% of every donation is tax-deductable, and will support The Adventure Project’s Keep It Clean Campaign for India.

Keep an eye on our progress!
