2 weeks of sacrifice - DAY 1

Am I the only one who's totally psyched for this?

Today is DAY 1 of my 2 Week Sacrifice to bring water to African communities in need via Blood: Water Mission.

For the next 14 days, I'll drink nothing but water, and the money I save by doing so will be donated to Blood: Water to fund clean water well projects.

Drinking water- and only water -for 14 days may not seem like much, but consider this...

$1 will give someone in Africa clean water for A WHOLE YEAR.

To me, that in and of itself is pretty much mind blowing.

So far today, by giving up coffee & juice at breakfast, and tea this afternoon, I've saved enough money to give 4 people in Africa clean, safe drinking water for one whole year.

If one blogger can give that much...imagine what five bloggers could give? Or ten? Or fifteen bloggers?

I'm hoping at least 15 bloggers will join me in the 2 week sacrifice. It would mean clean water for hundreds of people this year.

And that, to me, sounds pretty beautiful.

If you agree, why not join? Your 2 weeks of sacrifice will save lives! You don't have to be a blogger to join. Check it out: http://www.bloodwatermission.com/take-action/campaigns/2-weeks-of-sacrifice.php
