THE STORY:

I am running a half marathon, October 23, to raise money for Hope Water Project. The goal of HWP is to build wells in African villages. Here are some of the life-changing effects of giving clean water: Clean Water Changes Everything Health: 3,000 children die every day from diseases caused by unclean water. Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Education: Clean water helps keep kids in school, especially girls. Less time collecting water means more time in class. Time: In Africa alone, women spend 40 billion hours a year walking for water. Access to clean water gives communities more time to grow food, earn an income, and go to school -- all of which fight poverty. Women Empowerment: Women are responsible for 72% of the water collected in Sub-Saharan Africa. When a community gets water, women and girls get their lives back. They start businesses, improve their homes, and take charge of their own futures. My goal is to raise $1000 dollars for this cause. Can you help me reach that goal? Please pray, as I join hundreds from Daybreak, to see enough money raised to put 14 wells in Africa!
