Here’s food for thought . . . Christmas – That time of year when we spend money on people we don’t like, for things they don’t need, with funds we cannot afford.
Let’s reset. Join me in a conspiracy – an Advent Conspiracy – by cutting out even one gift and giving to someone truly in need.
• In the U.S. alone, Americans will spend $450 billion during the holiday season.
• For $10 billion, we could ensure fresh, clean drinking water for every person on the planet.
Why does fresh drinking water matter? Currently, one in nine people on the globe – 785 million people – lack access to fresh drinking water.
Fifty percent of the people on the planet have lower water quality than that enjoyed by citizens of Rome 2,000 years ago.
In Cambodia, three of every four deaths are the result of water-borne diseases.
Every 20 seconds a child dies due to lack of access to clean drinking water.
Just think – money saved on one less gift can save one additional life.
Join the conspiracy. Whether around the world or around your block, give to someone in need.
