clean water.

The pictures are haunting.
Reality is cruel
and the need is great.

It's easy {for me} to forget the blessing of clean water and food.

But, for those living and enduring the great famine in the horn of Africa--each breath is a reminder that they are going without life's basic needs.

Together can make a difference in the lives of many.  Organizations like A Glimmer of Hope and World Vision have initiated emergency campaigns to bring food, water and healthcare to those in need in Ethiopia and surrounding countries.

Also, in efforts to bring clean water to Africa, my uncle is running his 7th Chicago Marathon with World Vision.  His goal to to raise $7,000 to help make clean water a reality. If 700 people donated $10--his goal would be met.  Would you consider giving?  Go HERE for more information.
