Today is Christmas Eve–the last day to finish your shopping. Instead of heading to the mall and fighting the traffic, why not consider giving to a charity in honor of your loved one or friend? Today’s charity, Water of Life International, tells us that not only do 783 million people around the world lack access to clean water, but each year 6-8 million people will die from drinking unsafe water. That’s approxiamately the entire state of South Carolina, just gone.
So, on our last Gift Solution post, consider giving to this water non-profit. Water of Life is located right around the corner from our company in Greer, SC. They seek to provide sustainable water sources in villages and homes that need it.
So, today, on Christmas Eve, consider giving the most basic gift to someone who needs it in India, Sierra Leone, or Liberia. Give the gift of water.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Fresh Water Systems.
Blood:Water Mission is our water charity for today’s gift solution. Blood:Water Mission partners with local agencies and communities in Africa to provide both fresh, clean water and HIV/AIDS medicine. This year, they are asking you to give some of the money typically spent on Christmas candies or pet presents to help build a AIDS clinic in Kenya.
Here’s a video showing how you can help:
So if you are still looking for a gift for that hard-to-buy-for person on your list, think about giving instead to the Isiolo Clinic in Kenya. You’ll be glad you did, and the families and children who visit the clinic will be too.
Let’s face it. It is the Sunday before Christmas. You don’t have much time left to do your Christmas shopping. You probably won’t be able to order something online and receive it by Christmas. So, for those last few people on your list, why not consider going a different route?
If your list looks anything like my list, there are a few people on there that just seem to have everything. What do they need? Another pair of socks? Another mug? Another tie? Probably not. Why not use your money to help someone who does need it? Donate to a charity in honor of that person who seems to have everything.
For the last three gift solution posts, we’ll introduce you to three great water charities that could use your help.
Let’s take a look at Charity: Water. Charity: Water takes donations and puts them towards water projects in 20 developing countries throughout Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
Charity: Water focuses on digging wells, providing community filtration devices, and providing toilets in places like schools. When proper sanitation is available, the spread of water born illnesses can be cut in half. So why give another tacky Christmas sweater? Consider giving instead to Charity: water to help communities in need.
The gift solution for today is the Rainshow’r Crystal Ball Bath Filter. This is the perfect choice for anyone one your list with children or pets.
Chlorine and chloramine are used by almost all municipal water services to disinfect drinking water. However, along with the drinking water, bath and shower water will also have chlorine and chloramine disinfectants in it. These disinfectants can cause a strong musty odor. But, even more concerning than the bad odor, they can cause skin irritation, rashes, and dry, damaged hair. Children and pets may also suffer from the affects of chlorine and chloramine in bath water.
The Rainshow’r Crystal Ball bath filter is a self-contained, easy to use filter that requires no installation time and no plumbing. Simply hang the Crystal Ball from the faucet in the bathtub or swirl the ball around in the bath water. The specially formulated filter media will drastically reduce the dangerous chemicals in bath water immediately upon contact. Simply swirl the ball around in the tub for a few moments after the tub is filled. The filtration media is good for 1 year or approximately 200 baths.
If the Crystal Ball isn’t for you, check out our selection of easy to use shower filters as well. Come back tomorrow for another gift solution! Just a few more shopping days left.
