In case you didn’t know, today is World Water Day.
Most of us don’t know simply because I’m pretty sure none of us have to every worry about water but nevertheless, we still live in a world today where approximately 884 million people do NOT have access to clean water – that’s about 1 in 8 people.
- Did you know that about 3.575 million people die each year from water related diseases?
- Every 20 seconds, a child dies from a water related disease?
It’s not going to change the entire water crisis but I’m so proud and humbled that thus far, ODW has raised and distributed $65,670 to help provide clean water in Liberia, Ethiopia, Haiti, Cambodia, and Kenya.
* Who wants one of these? We now have our unique ODW stainless steel water bottles. They’re only $25 (shipping included) or get one free by raising $1000 via your birthday or idea campaign.
