The little things in life that we take for granted would not be possible without clean water. Clean laundry, a warm shower, a morning cup of coffee, a relaxing bath to soothes the days stresses, the beauty of fresh flowers. My family and I do not know what is it like to be without these small luxuries that are a part of our daily routine, but many families do. In fact, 1 in 9 families worldwide do not have access to clean water. Beyond life's luxuries, its the children that suffer most. Being a mother of young daughters, I can not imagine being unable to provide for them due to a lack of water. A child dies every 90 seconds worldwide due to water related illnesses and disease. This is unacceptable and heartbreaking. I invite you to learn more, be humbled and make a difference. For every $1 that is invested in water & sanitation, an economic return of $3 to $34 is seen according to the World Health Organization. Thank you for "lighting the way" to awareness and change in the world's water crisis locally and globally.
