Water!!!

Ok, you guys already know that I'm pretty passionate about a little thing called WATER! I have seen with own eyes how water is life. To us. . .it's something we settle for. . .it's something we play with. . .it's something I waste. To Africans. . .it is a matter of life or death.

Look at these folks.
They are gathering water. Wait, do you see a well? NO. Just a large puddle. Dirty water. Yes, those children with the jerrycans on their heads are carrying water, dirty water home to their families. YOU can help!

My blog friends, Jody and Amy, have started a campaign this Christmas. Water 4 Christmas. They are raising money for wells dug by charity:water to be put in LIBERIA!!!!!
Join in! Consider this statistic. Americans spend 450 billion on Christmas. We could give clean water to the world for a THIRD of that. Consider that for a moment. Oh Lord, if just a 3rd of us would ask for water for Christmas. . .or start giving water for Christmas. . .we could make a difference! GO to http://www.water4christmas.com/ a section of the charity:water site and donate!

If you have people that really need gifts for Christmas, click here to see some cool Water 4 Christmas gifts for people!

I'm off to check this site out because I have seen the affects of unclean water in Guatemala and I know it's just as bad in Liberia!! Praying they raise all the funds needed!!
