But...that's not enough. The problem is, we all have personal goals. I want use my personal goal to make a difference in others' lives.
In this land of plenty, I don't have to worry about clean drinking water...yet so many people around the world worry about it every day. They worry not just for themselves but for their families. Without clean water, health concerns are quite literally everywhere.
Water With Blessings equips and empowers mothers to become Water Women: compassionate agents of change in their communities, who filter clean water for their families and neighbors. Water With Blessings uses the Sawyer PointONE filter system which functions much like kidney dialysis to filter out impurities in the water, leaving clean, drinkable water. This amazingly effective filter can be set up in five minutes. It requires only a 5-gallon container and the filtration kit. It is simple enough that adults of all education levels can understand how to use it. No electricity, no complicated maintenance...guaranteed for a million gallons of clean, safe water!
It costs $60 to both equip and empower a Water Woman. That's state-of-the-art filtration equipment, and state-of-the-heart training with best-quality, best-practices materials. One Water Woman = 10+ years of clean water, for 10+ thirsty people.
So, I am running for me...but far more importantly, I am running for them. Please consider donating.
