Give the Gift of Water this Blog Action Day #BAD10
Posted By Gavin Heaton On October 16, 2010 @ 1:42 am In AoC3 | No Comments
Today is Blog Action Day , a day where bloggers from around the world come together to support a single cause. This year’s cause is water.
Right now, almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. That’s one in eight of us.
Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren’t strong enough to fight diarrhoea, dysentery and other illnesses. The UN predicts that one tenth of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water supply and sanitation.
And you can make a change in this situation.
For the Age of Conversation 3, we have partnered with charity: water – one of the non-profit partners associated with Blog Action Day. This means that the profit from every book purchase will support the UN’s effort to bring clean, safe water to millions of people.
So what can you do?
