JUST THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW...




Right now, 1.1 billion people on the planet don't have access to safe, clean drinking water.  That's one in six of us.


DID YOU KNOW?
EVERY 15 SECONDS a child dies from drinking dirty water



WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH YOU?
"Do not you know that God entrusted you with that money (all above what buys necessities for your families) to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to help the stranger, the widow, the fatherless; and, indeed, as far as it will go, to relieve the wants of all mankind?  How can you, how dare you, defraud your Lord, by applying it to any other purpose?" (John Wesley)

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

I guess you could start by giving water4christmas.

$20 gives one African clean water for life.
$5,000 digs a well for a whole village.

JUST THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW...
Americans spend over 400 billion dollars on Christmas every year!

I am adding water to my Christmas list.
