BENEFITING: Imagine Scholar Inc
My goal is to help raise $360, which covers 6 months of clean water for 33 Imagine Scholars. That's an average of $2 a day!
Why is clean water important? Here in Nkomazi, South Africa, people do not have ready access to clean water. Many are unable to drink reliably clean water. For our Scholars, coming here means that they can drink without the risk of waterborne diseases, parasites and generally “yucky” things. And that means that they often drink quite a bit! Our goal is to support the next generation of African leaders—so we can't just hold classes. We have to keep them at their best! If you donate, you have the comfortable knowledge that you are making a BIG difference for inspiring youth I see every day. The jug of water you see is refilled on a regular basis at the water store down the street--imagine, a store just for water.
To honor the cause, it's Water Week at Imagine Scholar! That basically means I'm going to post water-related activities we do, each day this week on Imagine Scholar.
Here's the schedule:
Thursday 10/25: New blog entry about why I'm fundraising
Friday 10/26: Water sanitation facts (made by Scholar)
Saturday 10/27: Water skit, and wearing blue for Water week (by Scholars)
