About a week ago, we held a Day of Donation. We decided that for one day, we’d donate everything we took in from the purchase of Gold Subscriptions to charity: water.
The response was overwhelming.
According to charity: water, it costs an average of $30 to give one person access to clean water. And this donation will provide clean water for 1,834 people.
That’s 1,834 people whose lives will be forever changed by access to safe, clean water.
That’s because water changes everything. To see what I mean, please check out this short video about the work charity: water does – it’s about 2 minutes.
You see, the majority of the people charity: water helps live in isolated rural areas – places where women and girls have to spend hours each day walking to collect water for their family.
That keeps girls out of school and takes up time that women could be using to earn money.
Not only that, the water they collect often carries diseases that make everyone sick.
But access to clean water creates opportunities for better education, income, and health – especially for women and girls.
So we’re grateful to everyone who purchased a Gold Subscription for the Treating Trauma Master Series on the Day of Donation, to help provide clean, safe drinking water for people who are desperately in need.
How about you? I always love to hear how folks are giving of their time, talent, or resources to help others. Please tell me about your favorite ways to give in the comments below.
