Tap Water is Good
Today is World Water Day. Millions of people around the world are without potable drinking water. As we sit here in the United States (or where ever you happen to live), there is a way to celebrate your WWD. Take a minute to thank your lucky stars, God, or whatever it is that you thank that you are able to sit at a commuter and read my ridiculously unimportant posts. The fact that you have the luxury to love/hate my opinions is something for which to be thankful.
Also consider investing in AJWS. The American Jewish World Service sends people all over the world to help with wonderful projects to create self-sufficiency. Your donation could go a long way.
But what can you do today? There are restaurants that will be helping "tap" into clean water for people around the world. So if you are going out to dinner tonight you may want to consider going to any of the restaurants on this list. For all you non-New Yorkers out there check out this page of the site for what to do.
For more information outside of World Water Day on ways to stop bad things check out UNIFEC's Web site. Regardless of your feelings on the UN, UNICEF is working to make the lives of children better. You can't argue with that at all.
With that I wish you all a very happy World Water Day.
