SocialVibe: Charity Water

September 17th, 2009 by Randy Zwitch · No Comments · Philanthropy

For those of you who read the blog, you’ll know that I used the SocialVibe plugin to sponsor charity: water.  Now that the blog transfer is complete, let’s keep going with the cause:

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. Many people in the developing world, usually women and children, walk more than three hours every day to fetch water that is likely to make them sick. Those hours are crucial, preventing many from working or attending school.

Additionally, collecting water puts them at greater risk of sexual harassment and assault. Children are especially vulnerable to the consequences of unsafe water.  Of the 42,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and a lack of basic sanitation, 90% are children under 5 years old.

Please consider clicking on the banner each time you visit.  For each click, the rotating sponsor will make a “micro-donation” to charity: water in support of their goal of bringing clean water to developing nations.  It truly is free; the only “cost” is a moment of your time watching/rating an ad.
