10 Days 10 Lives: Day 4

Day 4 of 10 Day Challenge for Water.org: 

Some things for you to think about today: 
  • Lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every four hours.
  • Lack of sanitation is the world’s biggest cause of infection.
  • Millions of women and children spend several hours each day collecting water from distant, often polluted sources. This is time not spent working at an income-generating job, caring for family members, or attending school.
  • 443 million school days are lost each year due to water-related illness.
But, here's the most amazing thing?  There is a solution that can solve all of this. Please tell people that any donation to our team fundraising page will make a difference in the lives of people who are affected by the global water crisis. If we don't learn, share, donate--who will? 

Thank you.
