The Adventure Project

Today is World Water Day.

Two fabulous people are participating in the Adventure Project. Please go check it out. All they are asking for is for 10 readers to donate $20. That's do-able, right? Right.

Why?  According to The Adventure Project...
Our Goal
Our goal is to raise $10,000 USD in one day. We know that’s epic. And this campaign has never been done before. But if we succeed, we will help bring clean water to 300 additional people each month. That’s 3,600 people per year!
ProblemOne third of all handpumps installed in the last twenty years in developing countries are now broken. And 4,000 children die every day because of lack of clean drinking water. We feel that’s unacceptable. So we’re thinking differently.
SolutionInstead of drilling more wells, we’re using our charitable gifts for something revolutionary – to train and employ handpump mechanics. The mechanics earn an income, bringing themselves out of poverty, and they save lives – turning water back on for thousands of people each year.

(Robyn's passionate about water, yo. Last year, she donated some business profits to 2 different water charities: charity:water and 20 liters.
