The Cause: Water.org is a U.S.-based nonprofit organization committed to providing safe drinking water and sanitation to people in developing countries.
Clean water may just be the #1 thing we as Americans take for granted. Our toilet water is clear for goodness sakes. My children have this awful habit of flushing the toilet because it’s fun. I wonder how different their games would be if we lived somewhere else.
Imagine walking miles upon miles in search of water to drink and cook with. Imagine that the water you bring home is contaminated, but your children are thirsty, you need to make soup… so you use it anyway. This is how diseases, such as Cholera, spread; causing sickness and death. The sweet people of Haiti are finding this out first hand right now.
Fortunately there are organizations like water.org that are commited to providing clean water to developing countries is Africa, Asia and Latin America. You can support water.org by purchasing this BPA free camelback water bottle. (I have one and LOVE it!) All proceeds from the sale of the bottle go directly toward providing clean water to those in need.
