Fifty Dollar Challenge

When we see 50 dollars, we for some reason think this is a huge amount of money to give as a young adult or college studnet but lets put this in a week’s perspective:

50.00 can buy you:

  • Roughly 15 Starbucks beverages – lets say an average of 5 a week, thats only 3 weeks worth of Starbucks
  • Roughly 9 Chick-fil-A Combos
  • About 18 gallons of gas
  • 1 pair of American Eagle Jeans
  • 38 songs on itunes
  • Roughly 5 iBooks

When you look at this list it all seems fairly small compared to other things we value and take for granted – things like a healthy life, a life with no easily treatable diseases, and a life with your basic human needs met.

Right now, the people of Haiti are suffering with not having these basic needs met – as many of you have recently heard of the cholera in Haiti – and there is an easy, tangible way YOU can help… NOW!

Here is how you can help –  For only $50 you or your family can purchase a filter to be installed THIS DECEMBER by DefyThirst in Haiti and also the training that goes with it. 19 More filters are needed before the trip! If you purchase a filter, you will receive a card with the exact GPS coordinates and a link to Google Earth with a photo at the coordinates of the family that you provided the filter for! Give the Gift of Clean Water Today!

I dare you to help – I dare you to go without 9 Chick-fil-A combos or without 15 Caramel Macchiatos and instead give a family Clean Water that will last much longer than your coffee drink.

You can buy a water filter HERE!

If you do help – Please comment here and I would love to send you a Thank You!
