Making a Difference in the World
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.
We, the 6th grade at Lone Tree Elementary in Lone Tree, CO want to help with this crisis as much as possible. There is an interdependence that connects us in Colorado and people in Latin America, Asia, and Africa. What we do effects us and what effects them effects us.
Our big fundraiser is going to be our "Water Walk" on May 4 where we will try and simulate the struggles people who carry water miles to their home go through every day.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 ($153.86 per student in 6th grade) by June 1. Please help us meet our goal!
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.
