“Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be.” -George Sheehan
When I started 365give the above statement rang so true for me. Who was I? What did I know in my heart I was meant to be and what in the world does all that have to do with World Water Day. I started 365give because I wanted to make the world a better place any way I could and the UN World Water Day is doing just that – making the world a better place by spreading the word about water. Over 1 billion people are going with out clean drinking water in our world today.
World Water Day is a great simple concept – if every person in the world had access to clean water the world would be a better place. It’s that easy. What will you do today to help get even just one person clean water. If everyone in the world that had clean drinking water helped just one person that didn’t have clean water our water the problem would be resolved. One of the biggest problems in our world may just be solved.
