The holidays - a time for family, comfort and love.
Joy to the world, right?
Here's the reality of Christmas in our world: America spends around $500 billion a year on Christmas gifts. That's more than $600 a person. We also spend another $8 billion on decorating for Christmas.
Isn't there something out of whack with this picture?
This Christmas, I'm taking a step back from that world. This Christmas, I want to give more than gifts that fit in boxes.
I want to give people life.
More than a billion people are living without water on our planet. Some walk miles every day to get to the nearest source: a stagnant, parasite-infested stream or pond. They lug it back to their families. They suffer from diarrhea, worms and skin diseases because they can't wash themselves. 45,000 people die each day from waterborne illnesses.
My mission is to raise $2011 by the new year. 100% of every penny I raise will go directly to the water projects. And every project is "proved" using GPS technology and photos and put on Google Earth. Together, we'll be able to see the impact we've made.
One billion people, one cause. The least we can do is give one Christmas.
