2 Weeks of Sacrifice with Blood:Water Mission
July 28, 2011 § Leave a comment
Does everyone remember my post featuring Blood:Water Mission from last week?
I am happy to announce my decision to participate in the 2 Weeks of Sacrifice program Blood:Water Mission sponsors. The basic idea is to give up drinking anything but tap water for 2 weeks.
The goal is to:
- Become more appreciative of how easily accessible clean water is in the United States.
- Save the money you would normally spend on drinks throughout the 2 weeks and send it to Blood:Water Mission. Considering that every $1 gives 1 person water for 1 year… think about how so little [in our eyes] can create a huge impact!
I am hoping to start sometime soon… why the delay? I was wondering if any of you would like to take this journey with me!?
For both seasoned and new humanitarians alike this should be easy peezy! Such an effortless and simple solution to such a serious problem. Just think if you save $1 a day, that would be $14 at the end of two weeks… which would mean 14 lives that you have positively impacted!
I don’t know about you but I think cutting out the Coke Zero [mmm] and the sweet tea for two weeks is well worth the cause! Besides what a healthy initiative!
Leave a comment below if you would also like to participate in 2 Weeks of Sacrifice. I will send an email with the “logistics” of the fundraiser. I will also create an email group for everyone who participates to send updates on the process and the savings! Then at the end of the two weeks the blog will announce how much we raised as a group + testimonials and personal stories from you!!
So start thinking about how important soda/coffee/tea is to you and consider joining this initiative! Then pass it along to your friends and family as well!
