    World Water Day: Help World Vision Bring Life-Saving Water to Those in Need #WaterEffect #WaterNow (GIVEAWAY)

    Did you know that one child under the age of 5 dies every minute from diarrhea caused by contaminated water or unsafe hygiene? It’s hard to believe that such an easy-to-treat condition can actually kill. But it’s not easy to treat when you lack access to clean water, as 748 million people experience around the world. That’s nearly two and a half times the population of the United States! Watch the video below to see the impact of a water crisis on one girl’s life.

    To address the water crisis and acknowledge the importance of water, the United Nations General Assembly declared March 22 as World Water Day in 1993. I hope you’ll join me and World Vision in helping to spread awareness about the need for safe water around the world. Our efforts could help thousands of people like Violet (from the video above) gain access to clean water each year!

    When you make a purchase from World Vision, you can help make a huge difference in people’s lives. Here are just a few of the wonderful products available from World Vision:

    Blogger Exclusive: World Water Day Umbrella – Created specifically for bloggers behind World Vision’s 2015 World Water Day campaign, this blue umbrella serves as a practical reminder that rainwater is considered a precious resource for people who lack established water systems.

    Royal Silk Scarf – From the World Vision Gift Catalog, this scarf is made with luxurious silk using Fair-Trade practices. The blend of soft colors emulates the purifying qualities of water and the vibrant life that it sustains.

    These items are beautiful, as you can see in the pictures above. (My son is modeling them!) He was very moved by the video of Violet, and I want to teach him and his brother that there are other children in the world who lack the necessities they take for granted, like clean water. I hope you’ll join me in visiting World Vision with your children and helping other families in dire need. Here are some other ways in which you can bring attention to the water crisis:

    Take a short shower: Keep track of time spent showering as a reminder of the water shortage around the world. An American who takes only a 5-minute shower has already used more than an entire day’s worth of water for the average person in a developing country’s slum.

    Make a home-cooked meal: Skip a restaurant meal and use the time at home to talk about the need for water. Donate the money you saved by cooking at home to give clean, life-giving water.

    Walk or run 6K: On World Water Day, thousands of people walk or run 6 kilometers for children in Africa. Each registration brings clean water to communities in need.

    Organize a mall walk: Gather family and friends for a mall walk to remember the significant time women in developing countries spend bringing water to their families. The time North American women spend shopping daily equals the time many women devote to collecting water each day -- nearly 200 million hours!

    Give clean water: Visit World Vision’s website to contribute to the Clean Water Fund or make a monthly pledge. Just $25 a month provides 6 more people with clean water every year.

    Run a lemonade stand: Whether it’s hosting a benefit concert, coordinating a bake sale, or setting up a lemonade stand, you can raise money to help provide clean water.

    I hope you’ll talk to your family today about how you can help everyone in the world have access to life-saving clean water!


    One lucky winner will receive their own World Water Day Umbrella and a Royal Silk Scarf! Enter through the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and ends at 11:59 PM EST on Sunday, April 5, 2015.
