The day has finally arrived!
(No, I’m not talking about National Goof Off Day; although, that is a pretty awesome holiday).
I’m talking about World Water Day 2013! A day to raise awareness, bring about global change, and donate your voice to the cause. What’s the cause, you ask? Well, I went into further detail in my Fierce (Fe)Male Friday post on Matt Damon, but in a nut shell, there are still 780 million–roughly 1 in 9–people in the world who lack access to clean drinking water.
Fortunately, this problem can be tackled. It is one hundred percent preventable. There is no reason that anyone on this great planet should be without our most abundant resource–water.
By eradicating this global issue, we can increase children’s education, reduce child and maternal morality rates, create new employment opportunities for women, and so much more. For further information on lending your voice to the cause, read my post and go to water.org.
Join the strike. Spark a revolution. Be the change you want to see in the world.
