One person dies every ten seconds from water-borne illness, according to Water.org, founded by Academy Award-winning actor Matt Damon and Gary White. Even more heartbreaking is that of the nearly 9,000 daily death rate, most are small children.
As we are thankful this holiday season, and reaching into our pocketbooks, consider giving back in a big way. Water.org offers several ways you can get involved.
A limited-edition environmentally friendly Camelbak water bottle is also available for purchase and 100% of the profits will go to providing safe drinking water for those in need. And it doesn’t just end there; everyone who buys a bottle will be able to follow the progress of a community that their purchase is going to help.
Check out Real Moms Guide’s holiday gift guide for the green goddess featuring other awesome ways to give back this year.
