Water for Christmas

Want to know more about it? I discovered it on this blog
Some interesting thoughts:

4500 children die EVERY day due to water related diseases

Americans spend 450 billion dollars on Christmas every year.

It would cost 10 billion dollars to give the whole world clean water.

so to give up "things" this Christmas so the money can be spent to help people have clean water that to me is what Christmas is about.


I challenge you to think about it and ask those who buy you Christmas gifts to buy water for Christmas instead.
