charity: water - Leaf in a Puddle



I made it to 30 days of posting pictures every day. It hasn't been easy, but I don't want to give up just yet. To commemorate my 30 days of consistency I decided to start another campaign for charity: water.


"Almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean drinking water. That’s one in eight of us. charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of public donations directly fund water projects."


The reason that I like charity: water is that their purpose is so simple. Water is something that if you're fortunate you can have it every day all day long. And it's clean. It's an issue that can have easy solutions. And the best part is that charity: water gives you the opportunity to set up your own campaign so that your friends can help you raise money.


This is why I decided to start a campaign just for flickr!


I am going to post a picture every day for the next few days that has a water theme. The link above is a link to the campaign I have created just for this project. 100% of what is raised goes toward building these wells to help provide clean water to families in countries where clean water is not available. If you don't have a lot to donate that's still great because a lot of people donating a little bit of money can add up in the end.


So I hope that you will contribute to this and that you will share this to your friends and family. If you would also like to be a part of my campaign, then post your water themed photo along with this description or even just a link to my campaign.
