Water for the World

Has it really been a month since I've been on the blog?! Summer is here and we've packed in a lot of activities so far. Hopefully you have too!

One thing that is always associated with summer in my book is water. Water parks, swimming pools, slip and slides, and cold cool clean water to drink. Before you head out to drink out of the hose this summer, please take a minute to check out this short video about the water problems we face. This might help you consider getting involved, as we have, with some of the groups and the legislation that are working to get clean water to everyone in the world.

Statistics from the Water for the World campaign...

"4100 -
The number of children that die every day from diarrheal diseases spread through poor sanitation and hygiene. "

"The benefits of improving access to water and sanitation go beyond any one sector, and it is estimated that every $1 spent on water and sanitation generates returns of $8 in saved time, increased productivity and reduced health costs."
