There’s always a need. Locally to globally, we are aware of people in need. It can seem overwhelming, with so many people in need, and it’s easy to think that we can’t make a difference. But we can make a difference for someone out there.
My friend Jeff Slobotski, in conjunction with Big Omaha, has started a campaign to raise $5,000 for a clean water project in a developing country. The campaign is through charity: water, a non-profit that is committed to bringing clean water to the nearly 1 billion people in the world that don’t have it.
Now, $20 can get you:
- date night at the movies
- week’s worth of Starbucks
- not quite a full tank of gas for your car
- a haircut (well, for me it does)
$20 can also provide an individual with clean water.
A charity: water clean water project, like the one Jeff is raising money for, provides clean water for 250 people. So, $20 provides clean water for someone who, in all likelihood, has never had clean water.
In the words of a recent Seth Godin post, $20 “isn’t a lot, but it’s enough”. Enough to make a difference in the life of someone in this world.
There are a lot of needs here in Omaha, and around the world. There are a lot of great charities and non-profits making a difference in the world. Please consider what charity: water is doing, and consider giving $20 so someone in a developing country can have clean water. I’ve followed Jeff’s lead and have given.
