If you saw a child drowning, and saving her life simply involved drinking water, what would you do?
Far more people die from drinking dirty water than all the wars, terrorism, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, and tsunamis in the world combined each year. Half of the developing world’s hospital beds are occupied by people suffering from water-related diseases. 1.8 million children alone die every year as a result of diseases caused by unclean water and poor sanitation. This amounts to 4,900 deaths a day, the equivalent of 9-11 taking place daily to kids.
The difference is you know it’s coming and have the ability to easily save lives. Will you?
By simply drinking more water each week, you can single-handedly save the lives of numerous children. $80 provides life-long clean water and hygiene education for 4 people. That can easily be accomplished by drinking water in place of a paid drink once a week. Drink a glass of water weekly for 40 years and help 160 kids. Drink a glass of water daily and help 1,120 for their whole lives. When you’re lying on your death bed, will you remember that you drank a lot of soda, coffee or alcohol, or that you saved the lives of many children.
