Water - the gift of Life


Water is the gift of life that gives us beautiful flowers such as these Phlox.  It also gives so much more to those in countries around the world that do not have access to it so easily.

From Tim Ferriss' blog:  "In Africa alone, people spend 40 billion hours every year (e.g. the entire annual workforce of France!) walking for water. Women and children usually bear the burden of water collection, walking for miles to the nearest source. The solution? Installing simple water wells for clean water in strategically close locations.
Children can then spend more time in classrooms learning, and women can contribute to their communities with their minds instead of carrying jerry cans most of the day.  
Please help by donating.  Tim Ferriss (Author of The 4-Hour Work Week) has a charity:Water birthday page where he's asking for donations .  Check out his blog to read more about it or go directly to the  Charity: Water birthday page. http://my.charitywater.org/timferriss.  

"Charity: Water sends 100% of every donation directly to fund projects in the field. No “administrative fees” or anything–every penny of every dollar goes to the field.
