Look. I want India needs your help. I’m asking you, tumblr-or/blog subscriber/Google Reader follower, to be a part of making something big happen.
Today is World Water Day. Yep, I think it’s a good idea that we celebrate access to the life giving liquid too. To celebrate, I’m joining over 100 other bloggers of all shapes, sizes, and followings (though mostly mommies) to ask my readers to give to a worthy cause. Let me explain…
Several months ago I met a rockstar. Her name is Becky Straw and she was just starting The Adventure Project. Now Becky is particularly cool because she has a heart for others and knows how to put that heart into action adventure. She joined forces with another force, Jody Landers, and today I am telling you all this because you need to know that I have full faith in the endeavors of these two.
I write today because there is a chance to help women in India acquire the skills they need to be superheros. “Superheros?” you ask. Yep, that’s right. There are broken wells in India that need fixing and we have the opportunity to see those taps turned back on. There’s an organization called WaterAid that’s set up a handpump mechanics business and is training women to fix broken handpumps. The Adventure Project wants to see their well repairs increased by 50%. If we can raise $10,000 today we’ll make a huge dent in that goal. What’s more is that if we meet the $10,000 goal in 24 hours the generous and generally rad Prem Rawat Foundation will match it dollar for dollar. $20,000 by my math.
So what are you waiting for? Give now while there’s still time to celebrate World Water Day!
*There are nearly 150 bloggers asking their readers to give today. That means if each blogger can get 5 readers to give $20 we can blow past our $10,000 goal and raise $15,000 ($25,000 total with the matching of the first ten.
