Blog Action Day – Clean, Safe Water is Essential


Blog Action Day is an annual event held every October 15 that unites the world’s bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day with the aim of sparking a global discussion and driving collective action. This year’s topic is water.

Water is essential to our daily lives. We use it for drinking, vegetation, waste disposal, cleaning….

Chances are you have never had to worry about where your supply of ‘clean’ water was coming from. Water is accessible to so many of us that we take it for granted. However, were you aware that there are millions who are not so fortunate and are dying on a daily basis due to diseases attributed to the lack of access to clean, safe water?

The truth is we need to address the issue now. Do not turn your head because it is not on your doorstep…yet.

Please take action.

You can start by doing something very simple, click on the link and sign the petition to support the United Nations efforts to bring clean, safe water to  millions http://www.change.org/petitions/view/support_the_united_nations_efforts_to_bring_clean_safe_water_to_millions
