It's the most renewable resource.
It's an essential element of life.
It's used by all living things.
It makes up 50-60% of our bodies.
And yet, for too many people in the developing world, lack of access to clean water results in death.
Sometimes before age 5.
It's completely preventable, and you and I can do something about it.
This year I'm turning 28.
That's over 5 times longer the 30,000 children who
die every WEEK
from illness associated with dirty water
before they get the chance to reach their 5th birthday.
How about you - how many 'lifetimes' have you lived?
This year, I'm devoting my birthday to Charity:Water , an organization that uses 100% of donations to helping communities in the developing world have access to clean water.
The next two months leading up to my birthday I am devoting to talking about water. It's what my blog and Facebook posts will focus on. Please share it, donate and encourage others to do the same.
