Giving Back: Water Week is Here!

WEll, it is finally here. World Water Week. I wrote about the Tap Project a few weeks back, but if you missed it--this is a fantastic UNICEF fundraiser to help provide clean, safe drinking water to those in need. About 4,200 people die every day from preventable disease due to contaminated drinking water. By donating $1 this week, we can help change that.

These are difficult economic times--but I believe that most of us can spare $1. If you are planning to eat out any time this week, please check out this website first, and support a restaurant that has pledged with the Tap project. If you can't afford to eat out--we are in that category ourselves--then please simply text "TAP" to UNICEF (864233) to make a $5 donation (to read the fine print, visit here.)

There are many things in this world that are horrible, and we have very little control over. This is one thing that we can change--one dollar at a time. One dollar can provide a child with safe water for 40 days--a big difference in someone's life. This is a fundraiser powered by volunteers all over the country, and it is a cause I really believe in. If you do make it to a TAP restaurant this week, I'd love to hear about it!
