I have a challenge for you all this week. We are trying to fund raise for our water project and I am reminded of my read-a-thon fundraiser in elementary school. We all remember how this goes. You banged on your neighbors’ doors demanding money and they pledged a certain amount per book read and at the end of the month, you collected the funds and went on your merry way.
So I am not a huge fan of banging on neighbors’ doors anymore. (Let’s be honest, the guy who does all his landscaping after dark MIGHT be a serial killer and freaks me out a tad.) So I am asking all my blogging friends to participate in a water-a-thon. Here is how it will work. Starting tomorrow, Wednesday, April 28th and ending Sunday, May 2nd, I am asking you to pledge. Pledge an amount per time that you turn on your faucet. I am not asking for huge amounts for your pledge, but if you want to be like my awesome childhood neighbor who pledged 50-cents/ book, I would be ecstatic.
The point of this is two-fold. One, we will hopefully raise money for an awesome cause. Two, we will appreciate the clean, safe water that comes out of our taps 24 hours a day at our beck and call. Too often, we take this basic, yet vital, luxury for granted. Let’s turn on those taps, donate to a great cause, and help those who do not have access to safe water.
*We received 65.00 toward our 2200.00 goal in the last 24 hours. We have a long way to go by May 2nd (to give time for the water-a-thon to end) but WE can do it!
