Charity: Water

I found the link to Charity:Water on the Catalyst Road Trip blog...Maybe I'm behind-the-times with this. {After watching the video below, I realize that I very much am.}

I began to look around. I've heard of some organizations that don't dig wells deep enough to sustain the clean water long-term...I don't know what that means in feet {or metres}, but I was hoping to find something to prove that they were aware of this issue. {Not that I'm writing them to fight it, if they don't, but I wouldn't post about it}

I clicked around the site for about an hour; watching videos, reading stories, then pasting a banner to my blog html.

I love when someone becomes moved to action. Seeing a need and doing what he can to make a change. I love it.

Then yesterday, I saw a Tweet {ugh, I hate that word} from Joel Houston {of Hillsong} who is asking his friends and family to donate to Charity:Water in lieu of gifts for his 30th Birthday...pretty cool.

Take a look will be worth your time.

Note: I am not asking you to give money. I am merely sharing what piques my interest, in hopes that it might do the same for you. Having said that, I probably will participate in the future and think it could be cool for you to do the same.
