World Water Day

I’m in Boston for business this week, and today it has been drizzling rain all day. It’s wet, but not particularly cold as spring is knocking at the door. If I stand outside this great inn where I am staying, I could tip my head up to the sky and catch the light rain on my tongue. I’ve never wanted for clean drinking water—never been without. Never been sick and thirsty with the lack of water to drink.

But millions are. 890 million people don’t have access to clean drinking water. Today is World Water Day, but every day should be. Without water to drink, every other ill in the world, from hunger and disease to poverty and oppression, have to be second priority.

Won’t you join efforts with one of the global clean water charities that are doing everything possible to hydrate all? It is the ground level, the very base of progress…and without it we cannot grow.

Unshaken is a piece (clip below) from charity: water about the clean water crisis in Haiti since the earthquake. There is hope—and there is need, for you.

160x600_baby_bottleHave you got a September Birthday coming up? It’s OK if not, but the new awareness campaign from charity: water focuses on September birthdays. It was at a September birthday party three years ago that a group of friends launched the charity.

It is mind-boggling to think what can come of one good idea.

What’s in your head waiting to come out into the world?

How many “I wonder if…?” ideas are you hanging on to, assuming the answer is “Naahhhh”

Talk about it. See how it sounds out loud. Bring it up at dinner and at the parties heralding the end of summer.

Can you make a difference?

Hell yes you can.
