We’re dancing for water. The sweet folks over at Dancing for Water are posting videos of people dancing in an effort to spotlight their blog, to raise awareness for water. It’s more than just cuteness galore–it’s an effort to get your attention.
Five thousand children die each day from water-related illnesses such as diarrhea, according to the U.N., partly because clean water is too expensive or inaccessible in developing countries.
More than 1.5 million children under the age of 5 die each year because they don’t have adequate sanitation or clean water.
We are people. Moms, Dads, Sons, Daughters. United by the desire to keep our eyes and hearts open.
To increasingly live for things bigger than ourselves. So this Christmas season, we’re going to give up something. Big somethings. Little somethings. Going without so the people in Liberian villages can have access to clean water. The Moms, Dads, Sons, Daughters.
Statistics show that Americans spend 450 billion dollars on Christmas every year. Experts estimate it would cost 10 billion dollars to give the whole world clean water. This has become a national campaign to see if we can change these statistics. To swing the pendulum from consumerism to compassion.
To see what happens when we come together and buy Water for Christmas.
Our Advent wish in 2008— Water For Christmas.
Please. Consider a donation here. One dollar makes a difference. Twenty dollars can give a person in Africa clean water for twenty years. 100% of your donation goes to dig wells and fund sanitation projects.
And you could dance for water too—I’d love to see you shake your tailfeathers.
