How seldom we celebrate WATER.

Happy World Water Day! How often do you stop and celebrate water? We use water endlessly. In our showers, coffee, washing dishes and laundry, cleaning our cars, and on and on. How often do you stop and appreciate that water is always at the reach of your hands, clean, uncontaminated, limitless water? I know I don’t often enough. I take it for granted. All my life it always was there. Always will be. But for over a billion people around the world, this is not a reality. People walk hours every day to retrieve water from ponds or water holes that are contaminated and seething with disease. They die from contaminated water. They lose hours every day fetching the water, hours that could be spent getting an education, or providing for their family.

Did you know that it take over 32 gallons of water to produce one egg? 256 gallons to produce one hamburger? 306 gallons to produce a bag of M’n’M’s? We don’t even realize how much water we indirectly consume every day… and where we would be if we were like the billion people in the world without it.

But there is hope. We can make a difference. We can provide clean water to our family around the world. It’s within our grasp to make a dent in the water crisis. Watch the video below to see how you can help.

Make a difference. Provide clean water. And thank God every day for the beautiful, fresh water dripping from your tap.

project 365: day 48


i feel all hardcore drinking water out of this canteen. you know. like the studs in the movies wiping the sweat off their brows as they’re trekking across the sahara. i think it makes the water taste better. being in a canteen like that.
water. it’s incredible how our very lives are intwined and dependent on water.
the angle makes this canteen look round. but it’s actually one of those awesome flat ones. yeah i know you’re jealous now.
tip of the day: try drinking a gallon of water a day. its so good for you. it makes you feel very hydrated, too.
