my water project

Happy 2013 amigos!

A couple of months ago I got an email from charity:water.  They’re a organization that provides clean drinking water to people in developing countries.

I decided this was a worthy enough charity to give to, simply because 100% of the funds you donate goes directly to people who lack access to water. A lot of apprehension some have with charities is that it’s wasted on operations, ie the horror stories of corrupt officials, etc. In the case of charity:water,  they have private donors who have already taken over the operating expenses.

Anyways, I kinda of forgot about my donation from about 2 years ago!  Until they emailed me recently ( and all the others who donated) with photo’s and details about the project completion.

They actually showed me proof of what they did.  Actual photographic evidence of a tiny village in Ethiopia with a new water well.  Here are some photo’s:

They actually delivered the results !This blew me away! I mean I’ve donated before, but I wasn’t too aware of what happened with it. It’s powerful marketing when you can show a client (me) the before and after. They also mentioned to me ”  the communities contributed their own labor to build their water projects and formed Water Committees to maintain them for years to come.”  Very cool.

Which leads me to ask, have you ever gave funds to a worthwhile cause? I mean it’s easy to blow it on clubs, clothes, other entertainment all the time. Not saying become a Mother Teresa.  But also don’t wait to help humanity. You don’t have to wait till yer 50 to make a bit of difference in the world. A little bit right now helps.

  1. Keep the mixture cooled and pat it on your lips as often as
    necessary. It might just be a case of trial and error, if nothing seems to work
    speak to your dermatologist for any advice or try a different acne
    skin care product. We don’t want to end up
    old and wrinkled because we spent every other day in a tanning booth.

  2. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like
    to shoot you an e-mail. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

  3. Reality is, there’s no failing when it comes to mobile CPA advertising and marketing, there’s only experimentation. This can be done in several ways, and the specialist
    has the right knowledge to help you to enjoy. To get the most effective ROI for your time and effort,
    spend it on materials you have the most trouble with.

  4. On the other hand, a quality of long standing
    durability and features like color & clarity of acrylic beads
    is much better than the glass beads. This fabric is intended to
    be loose fitting, but wear it too loose and you’ll look fat.
    You will be excited watching your kids in pastel tones especially when summer comes.

  5. You don’t need to spend a lot in using these practical methods to gain profit in increasing your marketing methods to build customer relations and establish expertise to acquire clients for your services.
    Affiliate marketing is when you market other people. Here
    again, the business must provide the CPA with written request to
    prepare a comfort letter and because they consist of performing an audit to be accepted as a comfort letter, they can be quite
    expensive.

  6. We’re a bunch of volunteers and starting a brand new scheme
    in our community. Your website provided us with helpful information to work on. You’ve performed a formidable
    activity and our whole group can be thankful to you.

  7. Everything is very open with a really clear clarification of
    the challenges. It was really informative. Your site is extremely helpful.
    Thanks for sharing!
