[do what you can, do it with others, and do it with passion. – guy ryder, chair of un-water]
today is world water day. i can assure you, being from northern mn, i have always taken clean water for granted. but today, 1.8 billion people use a source of drinking water contaminated with feces, putting them at risk of contracting cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio … and DYING. diarrhea is the third leading cause of death in kenya – the first among children.
it’s humbling to know these stats, as i’ve grown up in and around the water, not giving much thought to how precious it is. one of Edge of Seven‘s priorities is providing access to clean water. i’m proud to partner with an organization that focuses on something i value and love so much. (i mean, let’s be real: i have lake superior tattooed on my arm.) join me today, world water day, by donating on my campaign page for clean water access in developing counties.
as incentive, i’ll match all donations made today (up to $250 TOTAL … let’s be real people; paityn needs to eat) until midnight MT. yay, double the impact!
