When you brush your teeth, do you turn off the water? Do you finish all the water in your bottle or toss it out when you've had your fill? Do you ever take the time to think about the fact that for most of the world, running water is a dream?
It's true. We take advantage of the idea that we can go to any faucet, turn it on and get clean running water. About 80 percent of all illness in the world is attributed to unsafe, unclean water that carries parasites and other water-borne disease. But you can help. charity: water is an organization founded by former New York club promoter Scott Harrison to build clean water wells in Ethiopia, Malawi, Uganda and the Central African Republic.
My friends at Flavorpill are helping by asking readers to donate money to help build a well in Ethiopia. By purchasing a virtual bottle of water for $20, you can help build a well that will provide clean drinking water for a village for 15 years. Flavorpill is donating half the cost of a $4,000 well and ask that we pitch in the other half. And if they get more than $2,000, they're going to build more wells. Best thing is that 100 percent of the proceeds go to the project.
So donate now.
