it's coming!!!

this coming saturday, march 22, is world water day. i'm going to be obnoxious this week and not let you forget we all have our "thing" that GETS us. it's good that we all have different "things" - that way they all get attention! mine is clean water.

i just can't be ok with the fact that the lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every four hours.

we need to NOT be ok with this.

there are many organizations that have gone before us and built wells...and many of those wells are sitting in villages, broken. i'm teaming up with 2 amazing organizations this week. they are training people that live in those villages to FIX THEIR WELLS. every dollar you give this week is matched...up to $75,000. 

ANY amount helps - $1 becomes $2!
$20 helps one person gain access to clean water.
$100 helps a whole family.
$1,500 helps an entire community-- with the match!

in the past, i've sewn shirts and baked cookies to raise money. this year i've got nothing. i'm at the end of myself (beyond the end of myself!) most days. but my heart beats HARD for this...for them...for their water to flow. so, if you have anything to give, would you? 

click here to give. you have until saturday! THANK YOU!!
