Let's just take a step back and look at how fortunate we all are. You're reading this on a computer, right? With internet connection? I'm guessing you also have easy access to clean, running tap water. What luxury we live! If we all could simply give, to share even just a little bit (perhaps out of our monthly coffee or beer fund?) we can give WATER to those less fortunate. We can change lives. Water crisis affects poverty, women, health and education - it's also a spiritual issue. It is such a basic necessity of life that we so easily take for granted in America. We are blessed beyond measure, and we are so grateful for that.
We want to share our blessings. And we need your help! Our goal is to raise $5,000 to fund a well for a village in India through Living Water International in the next 75 days. Here is our fundraising page.
We are 29% of the way there. THANK YOU everyone for your contributions. Let's keep going!

From Living water international:
"783 million people lack access to an improved source of drinking water - that's 1 in 9 of us. In the places we work, it's more like 1 in 2 . Great progress is being made globally, but whole people groups are being overlooked - it's the poorest people with the least political power that continue to suffer, and these are the people we are called to serve."
"If our poor die of hunger, it is not because God does not care for them. Rather, it is because neither you nor I are generous enough." -Mother Theresa
