I can’t believe it’s already Blog Action Day, a day where bloggers from around the world support one cause and write about it. This year, it’s all about WATER, more specifically clean water.
What really hit home with me was this statistic:
Diarrhea remains in the second leading cause of death among children under five globally. Nearly one in five child deaths – about 1.5 million each year – is due to diarrhea. It kills more young children than AIDS, malaria and measles combined.
Diarrhea?!? No way!
The good news is it’s preventable by just having more clean water available. Interested in learning more? You can read many more facts and figures here.
So how can you support the cause?
Buy 1 copy (or more) of Age of Conversation 3, a book I contributed to, that is giving ALL the profits to charity: water. I’m buying a few copies today to share with friends, and I encourage you to do the same!
Find a charity of your choice and share your resources with them, be they time, talents or money.
