I am following my friend, Jay Foster's lead in fund raising efforts to support Splash, [formerly A Child's Right]. He has seen first hand, in both Ethiopia and Nepal, what an impact this remarkable organization is making on children, their health, and their future. They do incredible work installing and maintaining water purification systems in schools, orphanages, hospitals, rescue homes like the ones run by Maiti Nepal, and feeding centers like this one run by HOPE Enterprises in Ethiopia - all of which were functioning with dirty water before Splash intervened. Dirty water makes kids sick, and Splash has found an easy and low-cost way to fix this problem.
So I ask for your help, today: please donate, share this page with friends and family, and join this effort on Crowdrise on behalf of Splash and clean water for kids.
I'd also like to share with you a recent blogpost from Splash about how clean water is so important for all children, but especially for girls.
