This holiday season, give the gift of water. While many of us will never experience the true weight of being thirsty, 748 million people on the planet experience this every day without access to clean water. At Charity Water the mission is simple. Rather than offering grand solutions and billion dollar schemes, Charity Water focuses on simple things that work. Things like freshwater wells, rainwater catchments and sand filters. For about $30 a person, they know how to help millions.
“Water is an astonishingly complex and subtle force in an economy. It is the single constraint on the expansion of every city, and bankers and corporate executives have cited it as the only natural limit to economic growth”, says Margaret Catley-Carlson, Vice-Chair, World Economic Forum.
Clean water has become a luxury to many. Imagine the change we could make if communities lend their support? Charity Water invites you to put yourself in the shoes of those families without. “Follow them on their daily journey. Carry 80 pounds of water in yellow fuel cans. Dig with their children in sand for water. Line up at a well and wait eight hours for a turn.”
This year, let’s take small steps for our global community. Clean water should be a gift to everyone.
