What do you change for?

Tuesday, March 22, 2011


This post's t-shirt has been replaced with a bar of soap.

Yup, a vanilla scented "Keep it Clean" bar of soap.

Instead of sharing an organization's story with you, I'm spreading the word today for:


As a substance that both sustains scientifically and spiritually, a clean source of water is crucial to survival. While most are aware of the major water crisis in the world (read: almost 1 billion people lack access to clean water), fewer are aware that TODAY is World Water Day.

It’s difficult to raise awareness for something that most of us take for granted. Perhaps it’s even more difficult to comprehend the unbelievable number of individuals that lack access to clean water.

Yet, TODAY, some have given those people a voice—they have given thought to what so many of us take for granted.

Becky and Jodi over at one of the newest and coolest non-profits (The Adventure Project) have inspired over 100 bloggers to give those people without access to clean water a voice through typeTAP (typeTheAdventureProject). This project will fund water projects in India with WaterAid serving as its field partner.

The money donated to this specific campaign will empower local communities: “Instead of drilling more wells, we’re using our charitable gifts for something revolutionary – to train and employ handpump mechanics. The mechanics earn an income, bringing themselves out of poverty, and they save lives – turning water back on for thousands of people each year.” These individuals will now be equipped with the knowledge needed to repair the thousands of wells that have fallen into disrepair over the years.

You too can join the campaign TODAY because when typeTAP raises $10,000 TODAY the generous people at The Prem Rawat Foundation will double that impact (read: $20,000).

Here is my voice.

Where is yours?
