Verstehen: Struggles of the Thirsty
HEY! Make a difference in someone's life and immerse yourself in this cause! It'll take place in Downey and I'm only asking for about two hours of your time. Approximately 3.5 million people die each year from a water related disease, that is equal to the entire city of Los Angeles! Get up from your usually routine of life and step into someone else's shoes for a day. Women and children walk a minimum of 6km (~3.7 MILES) everyday to get access to clean water, whereas clean water is available in our homes. Ask your family, friends, and neighbors to sponsor your walk.
"Why should I join?" Any bit of help makes an impact. Help raise awareness and raise funds for Water yo! Things you'll need (per participant basis): -Drinking water -Comfortable walking shoes -Backpack -(3) 2L Soft Drink Bottles (Refill with tap water prior to event. Recycle after!)
The route we will take: http://goo.gl/maps/9qd7a
Sponsorship sheets will available upon request( sent via email.)
'The problem is enormous but we can make a difference. One in eight people don't have safe water meaning each morning they scavenge to survive. Lack of safe water and sanitation impacts a family's health, keeps children from getting an education, and traps millions in a cycle of poverty.
For only $25 Water.org can get someone safe water for life. Co-founded by Matt Damon, Water.org has been helping people get sustainable solutions for over twenty years. We can make a difference in the world, we can help change someone's life.'
