BENEFITING: THIRST PROJECT
EVENT DATE: Jun 24, 2014
I'm aiming high for such a short amount of time, but I want to make a difference! I've donated money each year to the Thirst Project which provides clean drinking water to communities around the world. The statistics are staggering:
--Almost 1 Billion on our planet don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water and proper sanitization.
--That’s one in every eight of us.
--4,400 children die every day from diseases caused by contaminated water. That’s huge.
--That’s approximately one child every 15 seconds. 80% of all global diseases are water-borne and result from drinking contaminated water. These diseases kill more than 2.2 million people every year.
Can you join me and pitch in this year? I want to raise as much money as possible in time for the Thirst Project Gala on Tuesday, June 24.
