This year, I was introduced to A Child's Right, an organization whose goal is to assist children in developing countries by providing access to clean and safe drinking water. They provide purification systems, water filtration units, water storage containers, and extensive hygiene education to orphanages, street shelters, schools and children's hospitals. They are doing phenomenal work by providing the most essential and basic need to children in impoverished areas.
I encourage you in the coming new year to add to your list of resolutions this - "to help bring clean water to children around the globe". Even a small commitment can make a world of difference. Some ways that you can do this:
- Forfeit buying sodas and/or bottled water and, instead, donate to an organization who helps with clean drinking water.
- Match your water bill with a donation. If your water bill is $30 then donate $30.
- Plan to give a one-time donation to an organization whose focus is clean water, like A Child's Right.
- Organize a fundraiser in your community, school, church, etc.
