40 days of water
Blood: Water Mission provides clean drinking water to the people of Africa. How many times during the day do we spend money on something to drink--instead of drinking water? $4 per latte (times 2 or 3 per week), $1.50 per coke or $4.00 for a case, well...you get the point. We spend lots of money on drinks...when water is free.
Blood: Water Mission is calling people to only drink water for 40 days. During these 40 days, they want you to put aside the money you would normally spend on drinks...then at the end of the 40 days...give the money to help African communities get clean drinking water. Remember $1 will help one person in Africa get clean drinking water for 1 year.
Now, will this be easy?? I am going to have to answer a big NO for us. We love coffee, tea, diet coke and Dr. Pepper. We have at least one of these per day..if not more. But, we are interested to see how much we will be able to give away at the end of the 40 days. Everytime we have the thought "I want a _______" then the money we would have spent on that drink will go in our Clean Water Jar.
Choose to make water your only beverage for 40 Days between March 1 & April 9 to help Blood:Water Mission provide clean water for people in Africa who don’t have a choice. Click here to find out more info!! Let me know if you decide to do this!!
