Charity Water

I've seen Fa using so much water in the last few weeks, taking care of her plants, playing in the sink and the shower...I never thought about how lucky I am to be able to afford her that simple pleasure in life. I mean we have filtered water in our house for crap's sake.

Living in NY, I don't know...this kinda gets to me...

Imagine how the women and children in Africa feel.

Go check out the site, you may feel inspired to do something about it.

I dunno, this dude is pretty inspired.


  1. >('> even my little fish in the aquarium get fresh water.

    I feel so blessed. And I feel sad, too!

  2. I have been on a huge water kick since I discovered that all our discarded water goes straight to the ocean WITHOUT a water treatment plant. EWWW I want to swim in that ocean come summer ...

  3. That video is powerful....I realize how much I do take running "fresh" water for granted.

  4. Thanks for posting this. I've become involved in the WFP (world food program) for the same reasons. It's so sad that we have such an abundance of food and water and so many people have nothing.

  5. Will Fa come over and take care of my plants?

    It doesn't seem to matter how much I water them - they still die.

    Great video.

  6. wow. that was very powerful.

    thank you for sharing it.

  7. I was drinking a glass of water when I read this. Amazing how much we take for granted, isn't it?
