WATER

when i really start to think about what my life...MY CHILDREN'S LIVES... would be like without clean, fresh, accessible water i become numb. numb to it because it is so far from everything i know, from everything i will probably ever know, and from everything i take for granted.

can i take a couple minutes to share with you what's on my heart this christmas?


last year, working with charity:water, project 320 raised enough money to fund for TWO wells to be built. two communities were given access to clean water. but more than that, they were given life, health, hope, and a future.

together with some amazing people, i have complied an abundance of simply wonderful items. you will see them all below. for a chance to win all of these items {ALL OF THESE ITEMS!!} you have to leave a comment on this post. you can only leave a comment here if you have given $10 to project320. 100% of your donation goes to the project 320 well, for fresh, clean water for communities in africa.

for every ten dollars you give you can leave another comment.
$100 = ten entries.
there is no limit on how much you can give.

ONE person will win all of the items listed here.

*****
what if every single one of you reading this right now gave $10? what if every single one of you posted on facebook, emailed everyone in your address book, and blogged about this…
and every single person who read those also gave $10?

what if you gave more?

what if we all played a small part in a much bigger story this christmas?

click here to donate to project 320.
