Susquehanna University student Brian Maehl is making clean water a top priority while also juggling his studies and activities. Brian started up a charity: water club on campus that fundraises for clean water. This month, the club hosted their own charity: ball.
Every day in rural communities and poor urban centers throughout sub-Saharan Africa, hundreds of millions of people suffer from a lack of access to clean, safe water. Women and girls especially bear the burden of walking miles at a time to gather water from streams and ponds - full of water-borne disease that is making them and their families sick. It left us wondering why. So, we decided to help. We'd like you to join us. http://thewaterproject.org/
Almost one billion people on the planet live without access to clean drinking water. We call that the water crisis -- and we need your next birthday to solve it. Join us TODAY, World Water Day, by pledging to give up your next birthday for clean water.
