BENEFITING: WATER FOR OUR WORLD
Contaminated Drinking Water
Every 15 seconds a child dies because of contaminated drinking water! There are 50,000 broken wells in Africa, so children must walk 5-6 miles every day to collect drinking water. 1 billion people drink contaminated water…every day. 80% of all sickness in the world is due to contaminated water!
I am going to raise (for starters) $50,000. This will pay to repair about 10 broken wells in Liberia, Africa and will pay for digging 4 new wells next to schools without water!
I had a stroke a few years ago. I am out of shape and overweight. I will turn 65 on November 24th.
My goals by my birthday are to (1) bench press 315 lbs. (2) do 20 pull-ups (3) press overhead my body weight (only 1% of Americans can do this!) (4) have 15% body fat - yucckk! (5) die trying!
I am going to 'take this challenge' in hope that others will support my efforts by donating to Water For Our World (leaders in repairing broken wells, digging new ones, and cleaning existing water sources.)
