World Water Day

Today, March 22nd is World Water Day. Did you know that only 1% of the entire world's water supply is drinkable? At last count, there are 6,907,323,048 people on the planet. Do the math!

Help raise awareness...there are 884 million people in the world that don't have access to clean water... 3.575 million people die each year from water related diseases (diarrhea, dysentery, parasites, typhoid).

...of which, EVERY 20 SECONDS, A CHILD DIES.

What can you do to help?

First...click on the logo above for charity options. Second...conserve water. Urban populations are growing at an exceptionally rapid rate (2 people per second!). Within 2 decades, 60% of the world population will be urban dwellers.  Without proactive conservation, fresh water will be hard to come by. Start now by reducing water consumption at home.

Show your children how YOU use water wisely...not just today, but every day.
