World Water Day

Everyone Needs Clean Water

In the last eight months we've been in eighteen countries, and almost every one of those countries faces some kind of water crisis. Most countries we've visited don't have a ready supply of clean, drinkable water for all their citizens (and even those that do rely on an excessive number of plastic water bottles—but that's another issue).

With recent news that our home state of California has only one year of water left (or maybe not) and the world's drinkable water will be dangerously low within 15 years, the issues of clean water and water conservation are more important than ever.

Fortunately there are a number of good organizations helping bring clean drinking water to the places in the world that need it the most. So this year on World Water Day (that's today, mind you), consider donating to a worthy charity like charity:water or water.org and help a community in need obtain clean, safe, sanitary drinking water.
