Sept 7 - a Big Day for Charity : Water

My charity in this blog is: Charity : Water

There are a billion people living without clean water. Four Septembers ago, Scott Harrison and his friends had a crazy idea.
They asked their friends to give up their birthdays and ask for donations instead of gifts. They used all the  money raised to build water projects. Every year, it got bigger.

Thay have now helped over a million people get clean water.

  1. Another group which works on water projects is Engineers Without Borders. Not as well known as Medecins sans Frontiers, it does necessary work. I also have broadened my charitable giving from hunger and medical issues to water--important for both nutrition and health. The Internet is a great channel for giving.

  2. Yay for Engineers Without Borders!
