Blue Planet Run and Our Water Crisis

Were you aware that "every 15 seconds a child dies from a water related disease?" This fact certainly got my attention, and I'd like to spread the word to you about Blue Planet Run, a foundation whose mission it is "to provide safe drinking water to 200 million people for the rest of their lives by 2027."

As Americans, we take our water supply for granted. A simple turn of the tap and we can shower, drink, cook, be nourished. But 1 out of 5 people on the planet don't have access to safe drinking water. Read this Startling Reflection on Water for an eye opening look into this crises.

Everyone has been complaining about the rise in gasoline prices as of late, and rightly so, but the most basic necessity of clean water is a much more vital issue.
