300 Voices

Please click on the link on the right of the blog: 300 Voices. This is a program that speaks for itself. I'll get the statistics for you later, but the group is trying to rally 300 people to commit to supporting the water project in Liberia for 2009. We're currently at 126.

This information is from charity:water, the parent organization ---

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. charity: water is a non profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of the money goes to direct project costs. With the help of exemplary organizations on the ground and individuals here, we can drill wells and provide people with this basic, essential need.

$20 gives one person clean water for 20 years.

It seems impossible that such an impact could be made with $20. Go to for full details. Look at the pictures of the water, before the well is installed and after. The water they drink before a well is built is water I wouldn't even want to step in. Think about Jesus and his comment to the woman at the well: "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, 'Give me a drink,' you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water." What a priceless opportunity we have with these people. Think about it.
