From March 22-28, 2009, restaurants all over San Diego will charge one dollar to bring you tap water. The good news is that this dollar will provide clean and safe drinking water for a child in Africa for 40 days, which is something I think most of us can afford to do.
If you live in San Diego, check out this initiative here. If you don’t live in San Diego, there’s probably info on where this is happening in your city, here. These sites will also tell you how to get more involved in this project as a volunteer or advocate.
I often forget that water really is a precious resource and that access to it doesn’t come so easy for the rest of the world. This is a wonderful reminder of how blessed we are and how we can spread the love to others.
