Dream Sailor (who just happens to be my niece) wrote this wonderful reflection/call to action.
Cold drinking water.
Warm shower water.
Water for Rocket Dog.
I give my cat water through IV’s.
Water for my plants.
Water in the bottle in my skating bag and in the car.
Water I sometimes waste, by not drinking, or spilling…
1.1 billion people in fact.
1.1 billion. Without access to safe drinking water.
In fact, 6,000 children die every day from disease associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene – equivalent to 20 jumbo jets crashing every day.

We need to ask ourselves questions that cause us to think about how we live and act.
Because questions lead to answers.
And answers lead to action.
….Because everyone. Absolutely everyone, should have access to clean, safe drinking water.
Give water for Christmas:
Lets make it happen.
