I'm posting this for about nineteen reasons. Actually, just one reason.
I'm raising money for the most amazing cause and I really want you to Sponsor me. On December 17th, 2011 I will be running the Rock/Creek Lookout Mountain 50 miler in Chattanooga, TN to raise $5000.00 to drill a water well in Barwesa, Kenya.
Kenya has been called "ground zero" of global warming. Recent droughts have devastated crop and livestock production and cost many lives thus far. Funds generated by this project will pay-in-full the drilling of one deep water well in the town of Barwesa, Rift Valley, Kenya. Barwesa is located on the edge of the Kerio Valley National Park.
By donating $50.00 you will be funding potable water for many people for years to come. Healing Hands says that, when properly maintained, a well can last indefinitely. A hand pump can supply water for up to 3,000 people adequately if used for most of the daylight hours. They know of some of their wells that are used sun up to sun down with a constant waiting line.
Please give, and raise a glass of water. Here's to life.
