the gift of water.

My love for charity:water is nothing new to the blog. Countless times I have shared details about them, but this one may be the best (and let me warn you, a tissue may be necessary to watch the video).

It is about the story of Rachel.

Rachel was a nine-year old little girl who learned of charity:water via a presentation at her church. She decided to give up her ninth birthday and raise $300 to provide drinking water in Africa. She reached $220 dollars and said she would try again the following year. Then she died in a horrific car accident. But something amazing happen, and people all around the world began to give, like $1.2 million of giving. So on the anniversary of her death, her mom & grandparents traveled to see one of Rachel’s wells. It is truly magical.
