"Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren’t strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses. 90% of the 30,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions are in children under five years old.”
My Honors Class is raising money to build a water well through Charity Water. Please click here if you can donate anything at all or if you want more information. Just $20 can provide clean water to one person. $10,000 will build a water well in a region that does not currently have access to clean water. If you cannot donate, please reblog this. I’ve seen posts like this get thousands of notes on tumblr. Let’s see how many we can get on this one. You can say I (Erika) sent you over, or you can donate in your own name, in memory of someone, or anonymously! 100% of your donation goes toward providing clean water because Charity Water has a separate endowment that takes care of ALL the overhead costs. Please help me with this, you guys. It’s so important!
