Dear BrownGirl Readers,
Imagine living in the developing world in a village, where that one river is the only source of water you have for drinking, cooking, and bathing. You don’t have safe flowing water from your tap. You cannot go to the store and buy sanitized bottles of water. Imagine the state of the water from that river… it is filthy and dirty with flies buzzing all around and animals’ feces infesting the water. There is another world out there struggling to live. Can you imagine, the water full of diseases? Right now, 1.1 billion people on the planet don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water.
It is September. Charity:Water has a September campaign for the Bayaka, an African Pygmy Tribe. Many live without clean water. Let’s help raise money to build wells in Africa. Remember, every $20 donated will give ONE person clean water for 20 YEARS. That is absolutely amazing.
I have started a campaign to raise the money. Click on the site below, read about the campaign, watch the videos, and donate. Right now my goal is $1,000 for this month. Let’s make it happen!
