Well Done

Over the weekend, I received an email from Lauren asking for some help. She and Keely have started a bloggers movement to help raise money for the non-profit organization Charity Water.

The organization helps to fund a mission to bring clean drinking water to developing nations.

Right now, almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. That’s one in eight of us.

To learn more, check out Charity Water's informative video. It's such a simple thing. Only $5,000 can help to build a well that will provide clean water for over 250 people. In fact, funds are being raised right now for a well in Africa and they're just $1,000 short from being able to build the well.

Maybe today, we could skip the Starbucks? Or grab a PBJ instead of stopping by Chick-Fil-A for lunch? Because just $5 from each of you could be enough to help to reach that goal. 100% of all donations directly funds clean water projects.

Blogging is such an awesome little community- it still floors me that people like to hear me chat on and on about painting cabinets, making curtains and spray painting everything I own. So I'm honored to be able to use this blog as a platform to share this organization with all of you. We're blogging for charity.

If you're feeling inspired, you can donate here.

A generous man will prosper,
he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.
Proverbs 11:25


  1. YAY! so exciting to see bloggers pull together on this!

  2. What a great movement. So many things that we take for granted.

  3. I added myself to follow your blog. You are more than welcome to visit mine and become a follower if you want to.

    God Bless You :-)


  4. This really is such an important cause. I'm involved with Living Water (a similar organization) and am amazed at what a difference clean water can make in a community.

  5. Here is a video from TED. It features the Founder of a company called Water Brick. It has a similar concept of taking fresh water to areas where there is little available, but their containers are also re-usable as building materials, much like legos, after they have been used...Check it out. They are doing great work in Haiti.


  6. BTW...On the subect of wells...12Stone has started a project to drill 100 wells in mozambique. you can see more info about that project here. The first one, (and maybe more) have already been done!
