Fulfilling roles as a full time teacher and full time blogger can get really busy at times. But, that should not be an excuse to also fulfill a promise. I owe the good people of World Vision an apology, because I let World Water Day on March 22 slip by me.
They sent this gorgeous silk scarf as a reminder of water. I am completely on board with their mission to provide clean water for those who do not have it. The high school where I teach builds and funds water wells for communities in Africa which do not have clean water. So I am well aware of the children who die daily from diarrhea due to a dirty, filthy water supply.
There are things we can do every day to help:
1. Donate and support World Vision on their Facebook Page HERE
2. Practice water conservation in our own homes….do we really need those 20 minute showers??
3. Use twitter to spread the word with #WaterEffect and #WaterNow and build awareness.
I have not worn this scarf yet…but I will this week and use it as a way to tell others about this dire need. I do feel bad I missed March 22, but I am and always will be on board with their mission to save lives.
Let’s all be thankful for our own clean water supply and work to protect it.
