Thanks for Water

My amazing friend Judy has launched her second annual fundraiser, Thanks for Water. Judy has traveled to several countries in the world for humanitarian expeditions in the last few years, which inspired her to commit to building a water project in a third-world country, every year, for the rest of her life (I told you she was amazing!).

She needs our help to do this. You can donate any amount you wish, all donations are tax deductible and are handled by CHOICE Humanitarian. Here is some information about this year's project:

We will be raising money for small villages in San Luis Potosi, Mexico called El Tecolote and Las Margaritas. This is a very dry area and water is scarce. They would like to build a project which would include 3 water cisterns and an animal corral structure with a large roof that will provide for a water catchment system to harvest rainwater. The estimated cost for this full project is $7,500.

You can read more about this project, and about her mission in general, at the project's blog

Among the many things to be grateful for this Thanksgiving season, give thanks for water and an opportunity to help bring this source of life to others.
