These are just some of the gruesome statistics – the ones that resonated for me in particular and that, until recently, I was completely unaware of:
Every 20 seconds, a child dies from a water-related illness.
An American taking a five-minute shower uses more water than the average person in a slum in a developing country uses for an entire day.
There are parts of the world where the average person (usually women and children) must walk almost 4 miles for water.
As I write this, more people have a cell phone than a toilet.
Hard to believe, right?
Which is why I am so proud to use my voice to not only bring some much-needed attention to this worldwide problem, but to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
Only $25 brings one person water for life.
For the next ten days I will be trying to raise enough money to help change the lives of ten people. And I’d love for you to join me. Donate to my fundraiser, start your own fundraiser, or just learn more about the water crisis.
We really can make a difference.
Thank you so much for taking the time to consider how much good we can accomplish. Together.
