All I Want For Christmas... water, but I already have that.

I recently learned that 4500 moms worry about whether their children will die today because of contaminated water - because 4500 children WILL die EVERY day because of contaminated water.

More facts:
-Right now almost a billion people on the planet don't have access to safe, clean drinking water. That's one in eight of us.
-Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of all sickness and disease, and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
-Just $20 can give one person in a developing nation clean water for 20 YEARS

There is nothing that I need for Christmas, but there is one thing I want. I want everyone to be aware of how little it takes to help save lives. Click on the button below to learn more about how you can help.
