Blog Action Day 2010: WATER

So simple, so common, but holding such sway over our existence.

We'd all die with too much of it all at once or an absence of it.

Our bodies are made up of more than 60% water. We can survive for weeks without food, but live no more than three days without any form of liquid.

Too little, we die. Too much, we die too.

How ironic then is it that the planet is two-thirds water but there is not enough good, clean drinking water to nourish and sustain earth's children?

Every drop is precious, every action counts, every person matters.

DO something to help conserve water. Not everybody has the privilege you have. And just because it's available to you, it doesn't mean you can take it for granted.

One leaky pipe means thirsty children somewhere.

It can just be as simple as turning the tap off when you don't need it or calling the plumber to fix drippy lines.

Or you could also help lobby to make clean drinking water available to people everywhere.
Get involved.

Make a difference!

The life you're saving is your own.

thank you! :) to tell the truth, i felt so overwhelmed by the topic. it's heart-reanding to see pictures of children dying of thirst, especially when you have kids of your own!
