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!
