Celebrating John&Gary, Water&People
Dear Friends: In honor of our friends, John Kominoski and Gary Person, who have committed their lives to our understanding and healing of aquatic ecosystems and human health, we started this fundraiser for Water.org in honor of their commitment to each other - which will be celebrated October 6th! We have until that time to reach our fundraising goal of $250 - which will be matched by the Caterpillar corporation! Pretty cool since Caterpillar just moved to Athens, GA! Water.org claims that they can help provide safe drinking water for life for a person with a $25 donation! If we raise $250, we can change 10 lives in 10 days! If Caterpillar matches, we have changed 20 lives for life! Please join us in honoring John and Gary in this way!
This is some information from water.org: 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.
Love and regards, Amy, Rick, Claire and Katie
