The Abundance Project
A team for Charity: Water
"The Abundance Project " a team to help the Charity: Water...
Walkathon to raise funds for Charity Water, A non-profit that provides access to safe water for remote villages around the globe. 100% of the funds raised goes towards the water project. That's just one of the reasons I love this organization. The other is that as it turns out water is a woman's issue. Why? Because it is the women and girls, who trek up to 10 miles in one day to retrieve water using up 85% of their daily energy to do so. While men are working, and boys are going to school, women and girls are making a dangerous walk where their lives are at risk. If they survive the trek, they are often bringing home contaminated water that results in death for the very children they are trying to protect. It's heartbreaking to imagine.
Your support of our team will help us reach the overall goal of $10,000 which will ensure a water project is completed and the lives of many drastically and fantastically improved. Please support our team.
