World Water Day 2012




"We shall not finally defeat AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, or any of the other infectious diseases that plague the developing world until we have also won the battle for safe drinking-water..."
~ Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary-General, in the World Health Organization advocacy guide

"I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink...whatever you did for one of the least of these you did for me."
~ Jesus (Matthew 25:35,40)

About 10,000 children will die TODAY because of unclean drinking water. Unclean drinking water kills more children daily than AIDS, Malaria, Measles and Warfare COMBINED.

Bob Pierce, founder of World Vision, famously said, "Let my heart be broken with the things that break the heart of God."

On World Water Day, let this truth break your heart and together let us make a difference.

Humankind Water (www.humankindwater.org) donates 100% of the net profits from the sale of their bottled water to dig wells and install filtration systems in communities around the world, that lack access to clean drinking water.

WalMart, is having an "American Idol"-like competition (Get On The Shelf). The product which receives the most votes will win a spot on WalMart's shelves; this could mean millions of dollars for the cause. It doesn't cost any money and anyone can vote twice a day: 1) Text 4829 to 383838 and 2) Vote online @ http://bit.ly/hkwVOTE

If you'd like a text message reminder, you can sign up for that by texting HkW to 50500 - because we want to help everyone remember to use both of their votes every day throughout the 14 days of the finals... Go 28 for 28 in your votes.

Thanks for your support. Please continue to help us get the word out because winning means saving thousands of lives!!
